Judith Lerner paintingPlease stop by the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library on the 5th floor of DHMC (right above the Main Entrance) to see Judith’s work.

About Judith Lerner:

Judith is a colorist, exploring shapes formed by shadows and light, threading colors on their way from the gaudy to refinement.  Her perception of the richly patterned countryside focuses on a continuing investigation of the colors in nature and the seasonal changes, always filtered through imagination and memory.

As a landscape painter, her technique in gouache presents broad vistas as well as details, using her immediate environment of the Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and travels.

Though best known for landscapes, she also produces paintings of botanicals each summer – a series of lotus dancing, roadside wildflowers, and garden flowers.

She has been a printmaker, an art director and designer of record album covers, and a book illustrator.

She received her BFA from the University of the Arts, in Philadelphia, and completed graduate work in Classical Archaeology at the University of Pennsylvania.

Her paintings and prints have been the subject of many solo gallery and group exhibitions in New York, Boston, New England, Washington, D.C., and London; and her paintings have been represented in the U.S. Department of State’s Art in Embassies program.

Lerner is represented in public, private and corporate collections including the De Cordova Museum, the First National Bank of Boston (Bank of America), the Philadelphia Print Club (The Print Center), the New Hampshire State House, and the Fletcher Allen Health Care Hospital in Burlington, Vermont.

The Seasons, a four panel mural series of Vermont landscapes, was commissioned by the Vermont Council on the Arts, and is installed in the Franklin County Courthouse in St. Albans, Vermont.

Lerner moved to Lyme, NH in 1971 and joined the beginnings of AVA Gallery in 1973.

Work can be seen in the studio by appointment, on the website, and during Open Studios throughout the Summer and Fall seasons, and as currently represented by Burlington City Arts.

Photographs by Clara Gimenez on display until January 2014

Artist Statement:First Frost Photo

This selection of photographs reflects my interest in the texture and color of landscapes.

My method is very simple: I take my camera everywhere and wait for the opportunity to arise. Sometimes the opportunity is obvious, such as a magnificent sunset over the bay. Other times, the call is more subtle, like the print of wind-exposed sea grass on the sand.
I continue the experimentation with texture during the printing process, choosing between traditional photo paper, watercolor paper, or canvas to emphasize different aspects of the image.

What do Renaissance artists and anatomists, Dartmouth medical students at the turn of the 20th century, and Robert Burton’s famous 1621 treatise The Anatomy of Melancholy have in common? They inspire us to consider the relationship between science, ethics, and humanism in the practice of medicine.

Students in Sienna Craig’s First-Year Seminar, “The Values of Medicine: Knowing Bodies, Forming Practitioners, Shaping Institutions,” explored these themes during Winter term by curating small exhibits drawing on the collections from Rauner Library and the Hood Museum. Come to Rauner Special Collections Library to see three of the student exhibits.

The exhibits were curated by Caitlin Zellers ’16, Lynn Huang ’16, and Regan Haegley ’16. It will be on display through June 20 in the Class of ’65 Galleries….read more.

Flower MarketCut-Paper Drawings by C. A. Santa Maria on display until April 1, 2013

Artist Statement: 
C. A. Santa Maria
My papers come from around the globe:  made of mulberry bark, rice, silk.  It can be smooth, transparent, subtle, screeching.  Paper allows me to add and take away at the same time.  I have worked with paper long enough that I can sense where it “wants” to go.  Sometimes it falls into place in ways I would not have imagined and thereby changed the mood of the art.

After living in Togo from 1972-1975 I returned to Vermont for several months before leaving for Cuernavaca, Mexico where I remained for the next 20 years.

Mexican and African cultures thrive on personal connections.  Mexico’s artisans are among the most diverse in the world:  paper makers, potters, silversmiths, embroiders, mask makers, lacquer-workers, wood carvers.  The patterns, collections of goods and the ability to speak to and work directly with Mexican craftspeople led me on a journey Mexicans call a “life of many turns.”  The wide richness of colors in people, their clothing, plants, wildlife, market-place foods and spices endlessly filled my senses. There is a wonderful pandemonium of life in Mexico and West Africa that calls to me.  That cacophony of colors, sounds, smells still fills my senses and flows into my art.  Major influences have been Huichol yarn paintings:  the techniques the Huichol use to outline figures and how they compose apparent “chaotic” themes that come from visions and dreams.  This “art” for the Huichol is their prayer.  Evident in my work too are the intense colors of the Gullah people, their flowing skylines and endless seas.  The poetry of their language and daily lives is clear in the movement of their art.

I received my MA from Dartmouth but I learned how to be a human being in West Africa and Mexico.  These cultures allow differences that embrace life on a scale that nurtures the most “human” parts of our beings.
