Paintings by

Mary Therese Wright’s artwork and community-based projects have been shown throughout the United States since 1989. Wright has a keen interest in materiality whether painting, printmaking, or metalsmithing. Her current work is a response to the vibrant colors and dynamic shapes of nature. She lives in Jacksonville, Vermont, and draws inspiration from her deep relationship with the trails and water of Lake Whitingham.

Tina Olsen has painted throughout her life for what she calls “therapeutic creative expression.”  She moved to Brattleboro in 2006 to live near her daughter and found a community of artists at the River Gallery School and 118 Elliot. Olsen’s works in oil and watercolor bring life to the healing light of nature.

Ellen Cone Maddrey came to painting later in life after careers as a lawyer, an elementary school teacher, and a parent of three. Her artistic inspiration is deeply embedded in the mountains and waters of Seattle, her childhood home, and the natural world of Vermont. Her paintings express the comfort and thrill of nature through color and shape. She lives in Montclair, New Jersey, and has a second home in Wilmington, Vermont, 

John Loggia has been painting and working in the arts since 1979. He has maintained a practice of drawing and painting while working in film as a production designer and producer. In 2015 John opened 118 Elliot, an arts and education center in Brattleboro, Vermont that he still runs with his partner. John is also a jazz musician. He feels that playing music and painting are two sides of the same coin with each practice informing the other and encouraging experimentation, risk, and unexpected revelations.

Crafts by:

Bridget Galvin, a glass artist, will present selections from her works of fused glass and stained glass. Galvin lives in Wilmington, Vermont. Her pieces are inspired by the colors and voices of the gardens, fields, and forests surrounding her home. Her work includes bowls, plates, ornaments, night lights, small dishes, lamps, and wall hangings.

Yucca, a Brattleboro resident, is a fiber artist and craftsperson. Her work includes costume-making, knitting, crochet, quilting, beading, and appliqué. She will be showing items from her beaded jewelry collection, including handmade Indonesian beads.
