    Interludes: a collection of new works
    by Cheryl Rezendes

    May 6 through June 27
    Reception: Saturday, May 7, 4-6pm
    Music: Rosemary Caine, Harp

    Bernardston artist Cheryl Rezendes has a very hard time wearing just one hat: Fiber Artist, Mixed Media Artist, Painter, Collage Artist, Clothing Designer, Author, Shibori Silk Scarf Dyer, and Teacher, are just a few titles to start the list. In May & June Rezendes will show a collection of new works at Salmon Falls Gallery that were created during the time of her father’s illness and after his death. “Interludes speaks to the moments of understanding and peace that came to me in between the crushing and painful bouts of grief,” explained Rezendes. “My father and I shared a great love for the complex beauty of the New England landscape. The imagery in these works is taken from the time I spent over the past 12 months wandering the woods near my home in search of the meaning of life and love.”

    The works in this exhibit fall into the broad category that some call Art Quilts. Rezendes prefers Mixed Media on Fiber or Fiber collage. Art quilting does not accurately describe her process. Rezendes does not just quilt, she hand dyes, paints and digitally prints her own images on cloth; in essence creating the very fabrics from which she will make a wall piece. In 2013 her book titled: Fabric Surface Design: Painting, Stamping, Rubbing, Stenciling, Silk Screening, Resists, Image Transfer, Marbling, Crayons & Colored Pencils, Batik, Nature Prints, Monotype Printing was published. It is a weighty volume filled with easy to do techniques allowing anyone to create their own unique fabrics at home. The list of techniques explained in the book shows just how much expertise Rezendes brings to her art. Salmon Falls Gallery has carried the diaphanous silk scarves she hand dyes and her quilted wall works for a number of years. This will be her first solo exhibit at the gallery.

    Meet the artist, Saturday, May 7, 4-6pm, at her reception with music by harpist Rosemary Caine. The reception is part of the first Art Walk of the year in Shelburne Falls. For directions and more information go to www.SalmonFallsGallery.com.

    Open 7 days starting May 1st:

    Along the River
    pastels by Rebecca Clark
    May 6 through June 27
    Reception: Sunday, May 15, 4-6pm
    Music: TBA

    Salmon Falls Gallery has loved the artwork of Deerfield artist Rebecca Clark since 2010 when she first started exhibiting here. Her works give one the best of pastel drawing, a soft tactile look combined with intense color, all blended into the fanciful abstractions she calls her Patty Pan Series, her works in pastel.

    The drawing titled Along the River is #296 in the Patty Pan Series and it is the piece anchoring this solo exhibit. Some images are easily identified as being truly along the river; you will recognize the mountains, sky and flora. Other drawings move away from the representational sense of this rare place and brief moment of time we spend here. Clark lives near the Deerfield River and among the rolling hills just south of Greenfield. Her work reflects the harmony between the lovely silvery water, towering hills, abundant flowers and greens, and those ever changing clouds above. It also begs us to play and imagine the scenes in a completely new way, maybe the way the 4-year-old within each of us might see lollipop trees towering over hills that look small and quite manageable against their size.

    Come meet the artist, and let yourself play with her images, a task completely good for your soul! Exhibit runs through June 27, reception is Sunday, May 15, 4-6pm. For directions and more information go to www.SalmonFallsGallery.com.

    May 24, 2016 - 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm at Mohawk Regional High School
    24 Ashfield Road
    Buckland

    Franklin Land Trust and MA Department of Conservation and Recreation are hosting internationally acclaimed naturalist Sue Morse for a visually stunning presentation about wildlife in western Massachusetts. Sue will talk about the wildlife present in the woods of western Massachusetts, such as the mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles who live here, as well as the habitat they need to survive and thrive. This presentation will address the importance of mast; the seeds, fruits and buds from a wide variety of trees and shrubs, all needed to serve wildlife a critical source of food the whole year round. Sue Morse, founder of Keeping Track®, an organization devoted to training professional biologists and citizen scientists in wildlife monitoring skills, will illustrate how we can enhance our understanding and appreciation for our local wildlife while protecting critical wildlife habitat in our woods through forest management.

    Sue Morse is highly regarded as an expert in natural history and one of the top wildlife trackers in North America. Since 1977, she has been monitoring wildlife, with an emphasis on documenting the presence and habitat requirements of bobcat, black bear, Canada lynx and cougar.

    Free and Open to all.

    The Franklin Land Trust works to conserve the farms, forests, wildlands, and other natural resources significant to the quality of the environmental, economy and rural character of our region.
