1st floor Merrill Community Room - Kristina Pentek - Photography

The intention of Pentek’s work is to capture beautiful and otherworldly moments as they happen, often in unexpected places. Color and light are of a particular interest to her, and she is fascinated with abstractions created by the natural world and juxtapositions where nature intersects with mankind. She looks for beauty in her day to day by paying attention to the details. Sometimes a simple change of perspective makes all the difference.

Pentek feels her purpose as a photographer is to present the viewer with scenes that are absolutely real but look otherworldly, painterly, fantastical or abstract. Nonetheless, her prints are the result of real scenes. Nothing is ever staged and none of her images are ever retouched or superimposed. The only alternations made are cropping and minor color corrections.

2nd Floor South Gallery - Brecca Loh - Acrylic Paintings

Loh is an expressive abstract artist residing in Stowe. She grew up in southern Connecticut with easy access to New York City with all its artistic and cultural influences. Specializing in colorful and emotionally rich expressionist paintings using acrylics and mixed media, her paintings are about the harmony of colors and the feelings that they provoke.

To the artist, colors have a language. They speak to one another. Her process is to create a dance of colors that create a sense of intimacy and wonder for the viewer. By painting in a non-representational way, it allows the viewer to bring their personal feelings and experiences to the canvas. The painting then becomes theirs, not hers.

These pieces will be on view through the end of November. For more information or to purchase please contact Kate Ashman at Burlington City Arts: 802-865-7296 or kashman@burlingtoncityarts.org

Community Gallery (front Foyer): Champlain Valley Quilt Guild

View quilts made by Guild members for the organization's annual challenge event. The Guild sets a new challenge each year, and this year's challenge was a "stashbuster." Many quilters keep a large "stash" of fabric, thread, batting and other tools, and this year's challenge was to create a quilt without buying any new materials.
