April 12, 2019, 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The T. W. Wood Gallery at 46 Barre St at the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, Vermont is pleased to announce an exhibit of Vermont painters Ray Brown and Toby Bartles. Both artists share much in common with the second generation abstract expressionists, as they both draw influence for painterly choices from immediate surroundings such as landscape or architecture to create inner meaning.
April 12, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The evening begins with a slide lecture on the history of the “crankie” or paper movie, along with archival photos, of a little discussed aspect of American history lasting from 1853 to 1929, known as the “Orphan Trains.” An estimated 200,000 to 350,000 children of all ages were collected from eastern cities, often without family permission or knowledge, and sent on trains west to be handed out in farming communities to anyone who wanted one.
After the talk, Delia Robinson will perform a hand-painted paper movie (or “crankie”) and sing an old ballad along with the accompaniment of Mark Greenberg. A painted moving scroll viewing device, now called the Crankie, was intensely popular at fairs and theaters throughout the Orphan Train period of history. Delia Robinson will sing the touching ballad “Oprhan Train” by Utah Phillips with guitar accompaniment and backup vocals by Mark Greenberg.
Recommended for ages over 12.
