Both of Edgewater Gallery’s Middlebury locations are open to visitors. Our permanent collections are on view and we are continuing to offer solo and group exhibitions of new work throughout the 2020 season. When guests visit the galleries they can be assured that we are following current state and CDC guidelines for operating a small business during the COVID-19 outbreak. Though we are eager for customers to see our exhibitions in person, we feel that, especially now, it is important to give them an alternative to being in our physical spaces and so we will continue to present virtual tours of our exhibitions on our website. These virtual tours will give viewers the opportunity to experience shows as they appear in the gallery environment and to see individual works up close, with artist information and details of each piece.
CUT IT OUT!
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
ABOUT THE ARTIST
At first glance, Betsy Silverman’s artwork presents brilliantly colored realistic representations of New England life. A closer look reveals that she crafts her artworks entirely from recycled magazines. Betsy searches magazine pages to find gradations of color, text, and images that she uses to create an interplay between her subjects and the precisely cut paper fragments composing them – juxtapositions that evoke memory, wonder, and humor. Betsy’s technique combines her broad training in visual art with an ecological consciousness that inspired her determination to use recycled materials.
