Eyes on the Land is organized in partnership with Shelburne Museum and the Vermont Land Trust, thirteen Vermont artists and the owners of conserved Vermont lands. The exhibition will be on view inside and on the grounds outside Shelburne Museum’s Pizzagalli Center for Art & Education, from October 3, 2015 to January 3, 2016. Click here to see the exhibition website.

The thirteen artists chosen for this project are: Tyler Wilkinson-Ray (film), Mark Nielsen (paint), Cameron Davis (paint), John Willis (photography), Caleb Kenna (photography), Brian D. Collier (multi-media), Dan Snow (sculpture), Karolina Kawiaka (sculpture/installation), Bonnie Acker (paint), Gowri Savoor (sculpture), Charlie Hunter (paint), Susan Abbott (paint) and Neil Riley (paint).

The Vermont Land Trust Lands include vegetable farms, modern dairy operations, working forests, river ways and recreational properties. They are (in no order): Bunker Farm, Harlow Farm, Russell Family Trust, Johnson Farm, Chareaugay Forestland, Preston Pond, Brewster Uplands, Butternut Mountain Farm, Bolton Nordic and Backcountry, Pine Island Community Farm, Virginia Stranahan Memorial Town Forest, Mettowee Valley, Champlain Orchards, Orange County Headwaters and Nulheganaki Tribal Forest.

Artists were paired with lands via the Vermont Land Trust one year ago. Now, from that pairing comes a full harvest of artworks in a variety of styles, techniques and processes. Vermont Land Trust describes each work as “a ‘visual essay’ that explores the artist’s personal responses to these protected places.”

Member Opening: October 3, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Exclusive preview for all Museum Members of the exhibition, in the Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education.

Exhibition open to the public after 2 p.m.
