SVC to Host ‘Winterhalter: Selected Works 1966 to 2016’
Southern Vermont College (SVC) is hosting an exhibit of artwork spanning a period of 50 years of making visual art by Professor Greg Winterhalter. The show will be on view in the Everett Mansion’s Burgdorff Gallery through May 4, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 12 noon to 4 p.m. The public is invited to a reception for the artist on Friday, April 8, from 3 to 5 p.m.
Winterhalter’s pieces reflect his interest in exploring representational expressionism in oil, acrylic, watercolor, wax encaustic and a variety of drawing materials. The earliest piece in the exhibit is a sanguine conte drawing of a female and male couple that he did while studying under California painter Elmer Bishoff at the Skowhegan School of Art in 1966. The most recent works are two mixed media landscape drawings from 2016.
Winterhalter describes his work as a “visual telling of the moment, and what happened to me in my life, with no purpose beyond that. I like to keep it simple.” He anticipates more time to paint and create in the near future following his current working semester at SVC. “The College is a very special place where one who is lucky enough to be involved sees continuous growth and transformation in students and their unique individual stories as they move forward in life. Hopefully they will include the making or appreciation of the arts in their life plans,” said Winterhalter. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
