Exhibition / America the Beautiful: Paedra Peter Bramhall
September 26-November 3, 2012
Reception/Vernissage: Saturday, October 6, 3-5PM
America the Beautiful XV:Dead Stars Falling/Paedra Peter Bramhall (38”x50”; ink painting on paper;2006)©
In “America the Beautiful,” transgendered artist Paedra Peter Bramhall delivers a powerful series of paintings that feature various nude figures in tumultuous positions in a small room wall-papered with the American flag. The effect is a meditation on post-9/11 America, a place that can be liberating yet claustrophobic; free yet judgmental; and, like the figures in the paintings, pornographic yet sacred. Each of the twenty-two paintings are rendered in sumi, acrylic, and india inks on a heavy rag vellum paper.
About Paedra Peter Bramhall
Paedra Peter Bramhall lives and works in Bridgewater Corners, in Central Vermont. A native Vermonter, Paedra still owns the cabin in which she was born. Paedra has been supporting herself as an artist since 1970, after graduating from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA in sculpture and a minor in ceramics. After spending over 35 years creating blown art glass, Paedra had her first solo exhibition of paintings in 2007. Paedra paints in inks and has worked in cast and fabricated bronze, glass, steel, wood, clay for sculpture. Now, Paedra says, “I make art with my mind using... the computer, which allows me to create at nearly the speed my mind works.”

Can you find the cyclist in the heart...in your heart?

is one of Shakespeare’s earliest comedies, and it shares many essential characteristics with his other romantic comedies. These characteristics include lighthearted and slapstick humor, disguises and deception as well as a happy ending in which most of the characters come out satisfied. The lightheartedness of this romantic comedy contrasts sharply with the darker humor and deeper characterization of Shakespeare’s later plays. It focuses on courtship and marriage. It devotes a great deal of attention to married life after the wedding.
Stage Manager, Bridget Scott - The cast features several local favorites, including Phoebe Sargeant, as Katherine; Garrett Hastings as Petruchio; Brenna Coombs, as Lucentio; Will Giering as Tranio; Emily Wight as Baptista; Rachel Patch as Bianca; Alex Wetherby, as Hortensio; Skyler Ambrose as Gremio; Terry Potter as Grumio; Savannah Hastings as Servant/Merchant; Kelsey Barker as Curti; Lennon Philo as Biondello; Gabrielle Lazzaro as Servant/Tailor/Widow and Bridget Scott as Priest/Vincentio.

"Working with wood is of course far removed from my painting, it somehow allows me to enter with a greater sense of adventure, especially when I know exactly what I want to do until the wood tends to lead me. Flight, however is a case where I clearly had to go where I planned, the formations I had been working with were seriously important, representing to me, natural shapes and rhythms of the earth".
