Main Street Brattleboro will host a three-day pop-up art show and sale Friday, August 7 through Sunday, August 9. Ceramic artist Stephen Procter will show his monumental sculptural vessels alongside painter Laurie Goodhart’s images of ancient vessels and goddess-inspired motifs. Their work will be framed by a collection of historical and contemporary Persian rugs curated by Jaja Laughlin of Nomadic Rug Girl.
Procter and Goodhart have collaborated on a series of painted vessels. Procter says, “I love the way Laurie’s and my work flows between 2D and 3D worlds. Viewers can’t tell if the pots inspired the paintings, or the other way around. In fact, the influence is mutual. We are mining similar veins of inspiration, and her imagery on my pots takes them to a new level.”
Goodhart’s paintings explore threads of continuity in human need and concerns through time. The themes she explores are both current and timeless: our need for sustenance, beauty, and grace, and visions of women on their own terms.
The presence of the Persian rugs echoes the timeless quality of the show’s painting and vessels. “The rugs are artworks in themselves,” says Laughlin, “and they are also a perfect foil for the paintings and vessels. The combination of the three makes the space feel sumptuous, like a museum or a shrine. The show is an experience.”
“Ancient Sources” will be open 11AM to 4PM August 7-9 at 79 Main Street in Brattleboro, Vermont. For additional information or to schedule a private viewing, call Jaja Laughlin at (802)380-1690.

Join us as Downtown Brattleboro’s Gallery Walk goes Virtual! We will be releasing footage from a virtual stroll through some of Brattleboro’s galleries every Friday in August at 6pm. Stay tuned for a program outlining the venues and artists. Footage will also be released via BCTV so stay tuned for date and time on that.
Galleries include BMAC, C X Silver Gallery, Harmony Collective and more! Gaslight Tinkers and Moxie will be making guest appearances and even Flower Man Extraordinaire Dick Degray May pop up.

Every Friday Night in August, Epsilon Spires transforms the parking lot into a safe socially-distanced outdoor cinema featuring innovative film screenings & performances under the stars…
August 7th- SEASON OF THE WITCH (1973) Dir. George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead), paired with horror-comedy short: A VISIT FROM THE INCUBUS (2001) Dir. Anna Biller (The Love Witch).
Joan, a housewife attempting empowerment through the dark arts believes she’s discovered the perfect antidote to her monotonous suburban existance… Romero’s self-described “Feminist Horror Film” is an intimate and provocative character study reminiscent of Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
Concessions by Madame Jo’s Creperie + Bar On Site!

Space is limited and advanced booking encouraged!
