December Featured Member Artist - Jack Griffin

Jack Griffin’s apartment walls, covered with decades of mostly retro styles, spill over into City Market’s Art Wall this month.

His abiding view of visual art is this: if a thought can be expressed in words, say it and be done.  If not, start a painting.

November Featured Member Artist - Alexander Lee

"Alexander Lee spent four years and three months traveling and teaching in China. He is currently a student teacher of social studies at Mount Mansfield Union High School. He went to Middlebury College and Vermont Law School, but lived in New Hampshire for nine years after graduating from law school and before setting out for the Middle Kingdom. 

His images are a combination of his own calligraphy and photographs that he took in the more than forty cities and five famous mountains that he visited."

October Featured Member Artist - City Market

October is Co-op Month and City Market is using the Member Art Wall to celebrate its past as we get ready to begin a new future!  Throughout the month of October, check out the Art Wall to see pictures of City Market in all of its varying stages from 1973 to 2015 and view some of our plans for our new store in the South End.  If we don’t remember where we’ve been, how will we know where we’re going?

September Featured Member Artist - Laura Cui

“Plants and animals have been my longstanding favorite subjects. I take pleasure in trying to get my drawings “just right” through close observation and careful line work. The process of creating my drawings are less so a means of expression, but rather an avocation for producing something aesthetically appealing.

This show exhibits some examples of my past work -- framed prints of plant studies done from life. They serve as the precursor to my current project, a collection of pencil illustrations featuring flowers that one might label “imperfect”. Keep an eye out in the coming months for my next show Imperfection.

August Featured Member Artist - Karen Karibian

“I tend to favor and infuse cheerful colors throughout my cartoons.  I prefer my characters to have a light and airy feel to them, almost as if they can be peeled off of the page, like pieces from a Colorforms set.  Many might appear to be dancing around, unaffected by the laws of gravity.  I like the dichotomy between a bewildered, muddled mind and a mischievous, haughty look.  This adds a separate element to the picture and makes it seem multi-dimensional.  It also lends itself to various forms of interpretation rather than that which is most obvious visually to one’s eye.

My cartoons are meant to encourage laughter and lightness.  In their uniqueness and bold style they are meant to let people pause and have a “simple pleasure” moment.  They are meant to inspire; arouse others to let their imaginations rocket and put down with fortitude the images that they feel compelled to create.”

June Featured Member Artist - Anthony Green

“My work is a practice relating to the phenomenology of revelation. I make these images through a careful study of the objects in my internal awareness. My method involves holding extremely detailed imagery in my mind's eye. From this focusing process, I then translate the revelations as imagery and story. What manifests is my Magnum Opus: a work in progress that is intended to be a graphic novel and a movie. Of the Timeless Go-Between is the working title for the project. These images are hand-illustrated through a collection of mediums in the tradition of Outsider Art.”

March Featured Member Artist - Bryan Briscoe

FRUIT & FLOWERS, Bryan Briscoe

“Drawn to light, color and nature, I produced Fruit & Flowers. I wanted to create something refreshing and challenge my painting. The process of art making is my spiritual outlet as much as a necessity. Nature and spirituality are my creative inspirations, be they subjects of humanity, flora and fauna, or the greater universe.  My work is conceived from self-expression, personal points of view, or subjects of interest to connect with the viewer.  I respect the work of late great art masters Henri Matisse, Claude Monet and Paul Klee for their contributions of color, light and imagination.  Positive and negative space, compositional balance, color, form and how the subject is expressed with paint are the visual challenges for Fruit & Flowers.  I hope you are inspired by Fruit & Flowers too.”
