April & May’s Downtown Member Artist: Hailey Schofield

Wild Mountain Ink is created by artist Hailey Schofield in Missoula, MT. She is inspired by the mountains of the west and the beauty of wild places. With this sense of place, she renders the natural world into forms of repetition created while exploring the wilderness. Her art features a blend of realism accented with abstraction. Through this she explores her passions, spirituality, and sense of self.

 

Hailey Hannah Schofield's art has morphed over the years. Her art started from drawing to painting to her passion in college: printmaking. Hailey's work has returned to her love for high detailed black and white drawings.

She graduated from the University of Vermont with a Studio Art degree, focusing in printmaking and silk screening. After graduating, she went on to teach high school art and later elementary school art. Her passion is still teaching although now she is taking a break to focus on her own art career.

Her work is inspired by the mountains she adventures through. Her work shows the high contrast features of the mountains of her home and travels. Her work is all original pen and ink drawings and then her new interest, porcelain jewelry. Hailey enjoys the texture, color, and plasticity of porcelain.

Her studio and adventure dog is named Tucker, also called Tucky.

March & April’s South End Member Artist: Brendan Bush

“My paintings explore color and movement as a form of deeply emotional expressionism. I eschew the concept of a consistent aesthetic, instead choosing to let experimentation with process, application and immersion in mood drive an ever-evolving style.

February & March Downtown Member Artist: Alyx Sellars

“Blessed Sustenance”

“In honor of the plants, animals, insects, flowers, elements, and people that expel endless energy to provide us with nourishment, nutrients, and full bellies.  It is too easy to forget too often how much effort it takes to grow a strawberry, tend to an apple tree, or raise a tomato plant from seed to sprout to fruit.  This series of paintings, made using acrylic paint on canvas (some pieces mixed with textiles) is an ode to all the beings that work tirelessly and with an open heart to provide us with beautiful, bountiful food.”

Alyx Sellars is happy to say she lives an artist’s dream come true.  Alyx was born in Anacortes, Washington at the ferry landing on the Puget Sound and was raised in Vermont.  After graduating high school, Alyx traveled through the Caribbean as well as Central America before attending The Evergreen State College on the West Coast.  There she studied creative writing and consciousness studies as well as receiving her yoga teaching training certificate through the Dharma Yoga Center.
While Alyx has many passions (yoga, writing, travel, etc.) visual arts has always been the driving force in her life’s work.  Alyx has drawn on her experiences, the inspiration of human nature, and her dreams to inspire her art.  She has little expectation for any particular message to be portrayed to her audience, but rather she hopes that the pieces will move an individual and expand their perspective; ultimately, to give them something they need.  Alyx believes that art is a deep, heartfelt expression that is meant to be shared, not owned or claimed.  That is why she sees her art process as making a gift.
When Alyx moved back to Vermont and started a shared family art and music studio in the garage adjacent to her apartment, her dreams became reality.  She spends her time creating and gifting with her family and dogs in her home studio as well as teaching yoga.

December & January's Downtown Featured Artist - Steve Sharon

Steve Sharon is an abstract painter, musician and mixed media artist living in Burlington, VT. He went to school for music at Goddard College in Plainfield, VT, and has been a musician since the age of 14. He started painting six years ago when he decided to shift some of his focus into making visual art. His paintings involve a deep and heavy process -- a method that he discovered through chance and through the drive of using the art of improvisation to create. The artist in Steve wants the viewer to look upon the paintings and come to their own conclusions as to what they see.

The prices of Steve's paintings are geared toward being attractive for everyone. He believes that owning a painting and having it in one's home for one's well-being is more important than how much one has paid for it. The value of the paintings will change over time, but the relationship between the viewer and the painting only grows. Steve's work has appeared in a growing number of professional gallery shows; and has completed private commissions a many customers.

September & October's South End Featured Member Artist - Annie Caswell

Exploring my creativity with passion and introspection fuels my soul. The transformation my ideas go through from conception to completion inspires and challenges me. The photographs on canvas and paintings come from several years of traveling and working around the world. From Delivering sailboats, teaching English in Thailand, to a garden walk in Burlington, VT. Wherever you are, there is always something to capture that is beautiful, even within devastation.

August & September's Downtown Featured Artist - Bryan Briscoe

From realism to abstraction. "My art focuses on color, form and expression." I work in representation and abstraction. In my work you'll find subjects relating to my strong spiritual connections to people, nature, flora and fauna. I begin my work with expressions or titles to visually communicate."Since relocating back to the east coast in 2007, I have continued to sell original paintings and prints".Bryan Briscoe paints at his farm house studio, in the Northern Adirondack Park, in Northern NY. He is producing original watercolor and acrylic paintings. "I am presently working on concepts for large works that speak to spirituality and nature". 

July & August's South End Featured Member Artist - Susan Essex Luce

A note from Susuan: One of my favorite local landmarks is Bren Alvarez’s brilliant filing cabinet sculpture on Flynn Avenue, located on the center line of the long-ago proposed Southern Connector. There is much to appreciate about it, from its commentary on bureaucracy to its artistic design. To me, it is a neighborhood-defining landmark - the Eiffel Tower of Burlington. I love looking up and finding that nature has taken up residence in, on or around it.
