Painting Exhibit by Georgie Runkle at The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library

Newfane Church Painting by Georgie Runckle The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is proud to host an exhibit of oil paintings by Georgie Runkle.  Georgie lives on the Rock River in Marlboro, Vermont where she enjoys painting covered bridges, local barns, and sugar houses because they are iconic Vermont structures that she feels are slowly disappearing.  Her goal is to preserve them in the only way that she can…on canvas.  She also loves painting in the Chesapeake Bay area, Quebec, Canada and locales along the Atlantic coast.  A few of the places where Georgie has studied are the Barnes Foundation, the Delaware Art Museum, and the Edward L. Loper, Sr. Art School.  Georgie’s paintings will be on display through March 2018.

Artist Statement:
Oil Painting by Georgie RunkleMy paintings are deliberate.  They are a mosaic of complex color and shapes arranged on a canvas to create a visual expression of an inner landscape.  My art becomes what I see in nature.

I am a plein air painter.  As you drive through southern Vermont you may see me painting along the roadside, in a field, or beside a barn…anywhere that the setting has attracted my aesthetic sensibility.

–Georgie Runkle

Collamer Abbott: Photo Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

Abbot photo of Hartford Vermont FarmThe Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is currently hosting an exhibit of Upper Valley Photographs from the 1950’s by Collamer Abbott, supported by a grant from the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.  The Quechee Library and Northlight Digital  worked with photographer Collamer Abbott in 2004 to create an exhibit called “The Changing Nature of Art and Place.”  Many of his images from the 1950’s were scanned, enhanced and printed by Northlight Digital of White River Junction. The prints in this exhibit capture life in Hartford, Vermont in the 1950’s.

About Collamer Abbott
Collamer Abbott was born in 1919 in Wilder, Vermont, just a few miles away from the site of the Ely copper mines.  Abbott later became the historian for the Vermont Copper Company.

This involvement with copper mining has constituted only one of Abbott’s interests. He has also worked in journalism, serving as reporter, photographer, and deskman at newspapers in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. In addition, he is a former associate editor of Ski magazine.

Abbott has also had experience as an English Instructor, teaching for five years at Castleton State College. He has written many articles and book reviews for historical and regional magazines, as well as for major newspapers. These articles include “Isaac Tyson Jr.: Pioneer Industrialist,” in Business History Review, 1968; “New England Money goes South,” in Georgia Historical Quarterly, 1965; and “New England’s Mining Relics,” in The New England Galaxy, 1965.

feMINIsts: New Exhibit of Drawings at Matthews-Fuller Library

Drawing of Alice, Age 6, Future Botanist

Alice, Age 6, Future Botanist

The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is proud to host a new exhibit of drawings by Geisel Medical Student, Erin D’Agostino.  This exhibit will be on display until August 31, 2017.

Artist’s Statement
Erin D’Agostino is currently a third year medical student at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. Erin’s art training started formally in high school, with primary emphasis on Life Drawing. She majored in Visual Arts and Neuroscience at Bowdoin College and completed an honor’s project that focused on the overlap between the two fields. She then taught high school students with learning disabilities prior to applying to medical school.

The “feMINIsts” gallery is intended to celebrate the right of little girls everywhere to pursue the future career of their choice, whether that future career is as a Botanist or as a Rock Climber or as a Princess Activist.

The proceeds from any work sold in the gallery will be donated to the project “Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls,” which is a series of stories that reinvents fairy tales to inspire little girls to dream big.

Erin draws portraits by commission and can be reached at edagosti@gmail.com
