Landscape, as Vermont art viewers have been observing recently, can be represented in a vast number of ways. This three-artist show at the Shelburne Craft School presents work by its visual art instructors Sarah Ahrens, Wylie Sofia Garcia and Sage Tucker-Ketcham, each working in a different medium and incorporating “landscape” in some manner. Ahrens uses slip (liquid clay) and handmade pastels to layer textures on her printing plates, while Tucker-Ketcham (who is also the school’s director) explores abstract painting with “pop art, self-expression and landscape” as guiding inspirations. Garcia’s “Cloaking Device” revolves around a colorful, high-fashion-esque garment that she needle-felted using raw wool roving and Spandex. The project includes editorial-style photographs of rural scenes punctuated by a figure wearing the cloak.
