Mark Gonyea

When: April 3-June 30 2015

Vermont-based graphic artist Mark Gonyea knows how to capitalize on a niche (see: geek) market. He’s successfully funded six of his poster projects through the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter. As a result of his latest campaign, Gonyea has hung an exhibition of five posters, titled “Name That Game,” at Dostie Bros. Frame Shop in Burlington. Inspired by popular board games such as Settlers of Catan and Pandemic, the works are on view through June 30. “I really loved the challenge of taking a wonderfully complex strategy game and distilling it down to an extremely simple but still recognizable design,” writes Gonyea in an artist statement. Update: Reception now on Friday, June 5, will feature a live game of Catan.
