The Feick Arts Center spring season: Inaugural student exhibits

The William Feick Arts Center at Green Mountain College proudly announces the first ever student solo exhibitions for the spring season. The Feick is setting the mark for becoming the region's hub of creativity and education, providing the students and community with events and opportunities for innovation and endless learning experiences.

March 23 at 6 p.m-Painter Cass Neimeth-Lazar will be cutting the ribbon for her display. When this New York state native was not throwing strikes for the GMC softball team, she was composing her Cuerpo exhibit.

April 13 at 6 p.m-Garecht Brunner, ceramicist, also a New York state native, will exhibit his perception of Dichotomy. In his work, Brunner uses stark contrasts for both aesthetic appeal and metaphor.

April 19 at 6 p.m.-Senior Tori Mullins will also give a presentation of her ceramic work.

April 27 at 5 p.m.-Photographer Courtney Perry opens her exhibit Ghatanaa Bibaran: Memoir in Surdam Gallery. The installation will be a visual memoir of a journey she took to Nepal this year. Her photographs will be complemented with sketches and drawings she formed while examining her time spent with Nepal's people and landscapes. Perry's exhibit will run through May 8.

April 27 at 6 p.m.-Leanne Callahan will put on the final touches for the season, with her oil paintings and ceramic work in an exhibit entitled Transform. She will exhibit her interpretations of transformation with experience from her core areas of study at Green Mountain College: visual anthropology and contemporary art.

These presentations offer enriching learning opportunities for the college campus and greater Poultney/lakes region community.

The exhibitions and all events are free and open to the public. General Feick gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday 1-5 p.m., or by appointment. Surdam gallery is open at all times.
