Shelburne Vineyard’s Fall art exhibit, Fall’s Call, will feature the photographs of Lincoln artist, Victoria Blewer, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 1 and hanging through the end of Nov. An Artist’s reception will be held at the Vineyard tasting room on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 2pm to 4pm where visitors can meet the artist and enjoy complementary cheese and crackers. Wine will be available for sale by the glass.
“Fall is my favorite time,” Blewer said, “It seems so simple and so perfect.”
In describing Fall’s Call, Blewer, who works in black and white, hand colors her photographs and said she “modified these photographs to appear painterly by blending the vibrant color palette of September foliage with the autumnal cravings of the soul.”
Spare and quiet, these photos express her vision of the quiet cycling of the earth in autumn that recurs each year and her wish that these images capture the peace and simplicity of Vermont this time of the year.
Victoria Blewer’s photographs have been featured in the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine, Vermont Life, Vermont Magazine and Yankee Magazine, and her work has won numerous awards.
Her awards include the Distinguished Artist Award for Two Dimensional Art at the Stratton Arts Festival; First Place for Photography at the Washington Square Art Exhibit, NYC; and the International Women’s Competition at the Erector Square Gallery in New Haven, CT.
Her work has been displayed throughout New England including the Harmon Gallery in Wellfleet, MA; the Fuller Museum of Art, Brockton, MA; the Hood Museum of Art, Hanover, NH; the Fitchburg Art Museum, Fitchburg, MA; the Alternative Museum, New York City; the Danforth Museum, Framingham, MA, and at the Vermont State Craft Center in Burlington, VT, and the Woodstock Gallery, Woodstock, VT.
