Nicole Czapinski: forever, a little ghost 

June 15, 2018 - August 5, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, June 29 • 6-8 p.m. • Free admission

Artist Talk: Nicole Czapinski
Thursday, July 26, 2018 • 6-7:30 p.m. • Free admission

Nicole Czapinski explores illusions within perception, the complexity of consciousness, and is inspired by the invisible and unknown. By employing the simplest of materials, she examines aspects of awareness – from the interior elusiveness of consciousness to the enormity of an expanding universe. Her work is comprised of framed shapes “drawn” with colored thread that appear suspended in space. 

For her Project Vermont presentation, the artist will activate her work by creating a series of frozen sculptures that will melt and refreeze in a continuous cycle throughout the duration of the show.

Nicole Czapinski will be the first artist to be featured as part of Project Vermont – a new series dedicated to experimentation by providing a setting for contemporary Vermont artists to push their artistic practice while creating new work. Presenting visual, performance, and interdisciplinary exploration from emerging to established artists, Project Vermont supports artists’ exploration of new ideas and challenges, enables innovation, and creates engagement between audience and artist.
