AB Grace Spring.jpg
A Retrospective of Grace Spring’s Sculpture will be on view at the Walkover Gallery on Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28.

Area favorites Deb Brisson & the Hayburners will perform at Lincoln Peak Vineyard on Friday, May 26, from 6 to 8 p.m., as part of the winery’s Wine Down Friday series.

Led by Brisson’s expressive vocals, the Hayburners are veteran performers whose repertoire ranges from Rock and R&B to Blues and Alt Country, with a CD of original material, “Heart-Shaped Stone,” to their credit. Brisson’s vocals are influenced by Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris and Sheryl Crow, but are all her own.

The evening will feature the guitar mastery of Mark Pelletier on Telecaster with Brisson on rhythm guitar, Pete Ryan on bass, John Wallace on drums and Doug Wilhelm on congas, harmonica and percussion.

As with all Wine Down Friday shows, the “doors” open at 5:30 p.m. for picnicking. Food will be for sale by Bar Antidote, and wine by the glass.

Admission is free. Bring lawn chairs or a picnic blanket. The Wine Down Friday series happens rain or shine — there’s room on the winery porch if it rains. No alcohol may be brought onto the grounds, and please leave your pets at home.

 Lincoln Peak Vineyard is located at 142 River Road in New Haven. More information is at lincolnpeakvineyard.com.

KATE GRIDLEY TALK AT EDGEWATER ON THE GREEN

Due to high demand, Edgewater on the Green will present an artist talk by Kate Gridley on Thursday, May 25, at 5:30 p.m. A reprise of her recent talk to the Middlebury New Horizons Club, Gridley will talk about metaphor in visual images with a focus on her three new strands of still life work in paint and photography.

Gridley says, “A Few True Things is a collection of paintings about objects and space. Objects have personality: a stout pitcher is a broad breasted person holding secrets, a pewter plate is a man from the American Civil War, a ribbed cup is a mid-western grandmother beating an egg with a fork. Groupings of objects might represent a group of characters, posed or in conversation. The spaces between, the cast shadows (concrete shapes in and of themselves), hold emotion.”

Gridley maintains a studio in Middlebury, where she has lived and painted full time since 1991. Gridley’s exhibit, “A Few True Things,” is on display at Edgewater on the Green, 6 Merchants Row in Middlebury, until the end of the month.

For further information on Gridley, her artist talk or her exhibit, please call the gallery at 989-7419, email [email protected] or visit edgewatergallery-vt.com.

TWO NEW EXHIBITS AT COLLEGE MUSEUM OF ART

Two new exhibits open on Friday, May 26, at the Middlebury College Museum of Art. The first, located in the Overbrook Gallery, is “Young America: Roy Lichtenstein and the America’s Cup.” In 1994, pop artist Roy Lichtenstein was invited by PACT, a syndicate created to compete in the America’s Cup trials the following year, to create a design for the hull and spinnaker of their boat. It was one of his largest and last works. This exhibit recounts the history of that commission and the history of the America’s Cup races, before and since.

The second exhibit, “Sabra Field, Now and Then: A Retrospective,” is located in the Christian A. Johnson Memorial Gallery. On the occasion of Sabra Field’s 60th Middlebury reunion, this retrospective exhibition explores the depth and diversity of her six decades as a printmaker. Both exhibits, which run through August 13, are free and the public is welcome.

The Middlebury College Museum of Art is located in the Mahaney Center for the Arts at 72 Porter Field Road in Middlebury, just off Route 30 south. Free parking is available. For more information, call 443-5007, or go to museum.middlebury.edu/about.
