ORIGINS: Recent Paintings by Adelaide Murphy Tyrol
September 29th - November 25th, 2017

September 29 – November 25, 2017 Reception Friday the 29th, 5:30 – 7:30 pm Adelaide Murphy Tyrol is an accomplished fine artist whose paintings have been displayed in numerous shows, galleries and museums. She works primarily out of her studios in Plainfield, Vermont and New York City. This year she was one of two Vermont artists chosen to be part of the annual “Contemporary Voices from Vermont”, a 10 month long exhibit at the Fleming Museum “… providing an opportunity to view the work of current Vermont artists within the historical context of their predecessors.” Tyrol’s work is primarily inspired by landscape and wildlife, but with a strong abstract element. She has traveled world-wide, intimately observing nature, animal and insect…

Points of Departure: new paintings by David Smith
July 21 - September 9, 2017

 July 21 – September 9 Reception on Friday, July 21, 5:30-7:30 p.m. Smith is an award winning oil painter with a focus on the Vermont landscape. Reviewer Marc Awodey wrote that his work was “Some of the best contemporary landscapes in the area. … What makes Smith’s landscapes more interesting than many others is his affinity for the abstract qualities of a scene. Smith is also a masterful technician, and even though his paintings are generally small, he has a perfect grasp of scale.” There is always an intense observation that comes through in these pieces. In the words of the artist: “A walk through evergreen woods searching for a lost dog, and I couldn’t help being distracted by the…

Perceptions Made Finer: a group show featuring Carolyn Enz Hack
May 26 - July 18, 2017

“Miracles… seem to me to rest not so much upon… healing power coming suddenly near us from afar but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that, for a moment, our eyes can see and our ears can hear what is there around us always.”                                                                                                                       Willa Cather “Death Comes for the Archbishop”   Art does many things besides enhancing our walls including documenting that which our senses perceive, but is often too elusive to retain. Artists approach this in a multitude of ways and when true observation is combined with skill and daring, whether abstract or realistic, art documents “…perceptions being made finer”.  Beginning on Friday, May 26, Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery celebrates that gift with a group show featuring…

Woods Edge: recent paintings by Joseph Salerno
April 14 - May 23, 2017

Beginning April 14th, the gallery will feature exquisite small oils by Joseph Salerno where the artist’s intention is that ” . . . the immediacy of the paint should reign supreme”. While these paintings are extremely evocative of a forested space both silent and quite spiritual in nature, they are worked in such a way that pure abstraction emerges. The continuation of a 2 1/2 year project, Salerno returned repeatedly to a small stretch of woods near his home where his depth of fascination with his subject evolved into a complex series. “Each new piece owes an obvious debt, and in a way contains, all of the previous ones, often reinterpreting past discoveries in a new light, while carrying the…

through April 11th

Being Present
July 15 - September 13, 2016

July 15 – September 13, 2016 Opening reception Friday, July 15th, 6-8 pm This show features the work of 26 artists currently represented by Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery and offers both a visual and contextual reflection on where we are today in our 25th year. The title references what the creative process is about: what we as individuals strive for in artistic endeavors as well as in the fine art of living, exemplified by being “in the moment” and seeking out the essence of what is within us and around us. Being present. Surely the source for creating artistic work of substance, no matter how diverse the style or medium. 12► Susan Abbott Bonnie Acker Miriam Adams Elizabeth Allen Annelein Beukenkamp…

Looking Back
May 20 - July 5, 2016

Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery was born in 1991, when we purchased the long established Shelburne Frame and Art. We transformed the Shelburne business into a contemporary, high caliber fine art gallery and integrated it with our own restoration and custom framing services that we started in 1982. And we still are here today…exactly 25 years later! We have shown some of the region’s finest artists over this period and now it’s time to show them off in a big way. We start this celebration of being Chittenden County’s oldest gallery with “Looking Back”, featuring 17 artists whose immeasurable talents graced our walls in the earlier years.     The exhibit will open with a reception on Friday, May 20th 6-8 p.m.,…
