Kristen L’Esperance and Sage Tucker-Ketcham, longtime friends, met Alex Dostie 11 years ago. While participating in Process/Progress, at the Firehouse Gallery in 2004, they spent five weeks producing work in the Church Street Gallery in front of daily audiences and became artist friends for life.  This show is an opportunity to present new work made in their individual studios, as well as 25 collaborative paintings.

Sage Tucker-Ketcham 

…is the Executive Director of the Shelburne Craft School. She has worked as an art educator, gallery owner, adjunct college instructor, painter, and entrepreneur. She received her BFA from Maine College of Art and her MFA from the Institute of Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Sage’s work has been shown at the Firehouse Gallery, Amy E. Tarrant Gallery, Burlington International Airport, SPACE Gallery, and more in Vermont, as well as in several Galleries and Colleges throughout New England. Sage’s work is part of several private collections and has been featured in Art New England, Boston Globe, Seven Days and Art Scope Magazine.

 

Kristen L’Esperance

Educated in Architectural Design and Fine Art, Kristen looks for opportunities to synthesize her ideas in novel ways as both a fine artist and a designer. Regardless of medium, L’Espérance sees her work as a vehicle with which she can convey a bigger idea while at the same time resolving the questions and challenges unique to each project. She believes it is rare, if not impossible, for something to be regarded as beautiful in absence of its meaning; L’Espérance maintains that the salience of this meaning drives her work as well as her relationship with the visual world. She is particularly passionate about creating spaces that perform and cater to the unique lifestyles and sensibilities of her clients and thier families.

L’Espérance is a fifth generation Vermonter currently residing in Charlotte. She earned a Bachelor’s degree from The University of Vermont, and a Master’s from Pratt Institute. She has exhibited Fine Art in many galleries including the Firehouse Gallery and was represented by  Doll-Anstadt in Burlington. Kristen has also exhibited in New York City at the Pratt Institute, New York 11, Steelcase New York Work/Life Center and in association with THE LOVE GANG NYC.

Dostie

…is a Visual/Performance Artist, Custom Picture Framer, Producer, Studio Boss and Native Vermonter.  He has exhibited in galleries around Vermont including the Firehouse Art Gallery (Church St., Burlington), Studio Place Arts (Barre) and Historic Union Station on the Burlington Waterfront. He has presented several Live Art Demonstrations and Performances at the South End Art Hop, Higher Ground Ballroom and at the Discover Jazz Festival.   In the spring of 2010 he painted the Airport Cow for The Cows Come Home to Burlington Festival, which is now a permanent installation at the Burlington International Airport.

Dostie is a member of Team Vermont Snow Sculpting and has competed at the International Snow Sculpting Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado in 2009, 2011, 2014 and 2015 and won the 2012 National Snow Sculpting Championships in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

Dostie is also an actor, designer and producer  who works with the Green Candle Theatre Company and has also designed and built set pieces for the Spielpalast Cabaret. Along with his brother Jeremy he co-owns Dostie Bros. Frame Shop on Pine Street in Burlington. He is the Boss of the BOX Art Studio (also on Pine St.) and the Executive Director of Art’s Alive Vermont.

Dostie Head

When he’s not kickin’ ass & making frames he’s singing – Nilsson songs! Yes! Encouragement! One afternoon several months ago Dostie was perusing Netflix when he stumbled upon a documentary film called Who is Harry Nilsson! He watched it. He was moved. Shortly after Dostie attended a Swale show at Nectar’s and after one too many said to Bones Blankinship: “We should put a band together and cover Nilsson Schmilsson.” Bones said: “Yes! Encouragement!” And so they did…and on Sunday March 9, 2014 they will perform Nilsson Schmilsson for the people of Burlington and all will be rejoiced and filled with encouragement! Yes!

TEAM VERMONT SNOW SCULPTING!

teamVermont_Champions_2012

Team Vermont 2012 National Champions: Brooke Monte, Alex Dostie & Michael Nedell in front of their 1st Place Sculpture “Inner Piece” in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

In January 2014 Team Vermont will be competing in Breckenridge, Co. at the International Snow Sculpting Championships! Brooke Monte, Alex Dostie, Michael Nedell & Adrian Tans will be one of three teams representing the United States in a field of International Squads made up of the best Snow Sculptors in the world! This will mark Team Vermont’s 4th entry into the International Tournament, having previously competed in 2008, 2009 & 2011. Each time Team Vermont has placed in the top third of competition having finished either 5th or 6th in fields of 16 – 18 entries.

There are many hidden costs to competing in such large Tournaments. Team Vermont is not paid to make these sculptures and must travel great distances with hundreds of pounds of tools. On Friday January 10, 2014 there will be a Fundraising Party at Art’s Riot at 400 Pine St. in Burlington’s South End Art’s District at 7pm to help Team Vermont offset some of the costs!

Stephen Goldberg’s Don and TomA dark comedy starring 
Alex Dostie, Aaron Masi, Genevra MacPhail, 
Ben Ash, and Tracey GirdichDirected by Stephen GoldbergWhat is innocence, what is guilt?  What is the price to be payed  to an unforgiving society, men accused of crimes of passion. You the audience are the jury and judge. How for giving can we be?

and

Maura Campbell’s Cleaning Day

A melodrama starring

Tracey Girdich and Genevra MacPhail

Directed by Maura Campbell

Jenny Greene is a single mother who cleans up after suicides. She arrives at the home of Iona whose terminally ill husband had committed suicide the day before. She is still in shock but makes the best of this strange experience by offering Jenny her hospitality. As Jenny works her way through the house and the day, she discovers that the story Iona told the police may not be the whole truth, and that in fact they share much more than the tragedy that has brought them together.

Two shows for the price of one!
