Gallery Talk :: Janet Fredericks

April 28, 2017 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Janet Fredericks has lived and worked in Lincoln, VT for over twenty years.  She is the
recipient of numerous fellowships and awards including a Bertek Fellowship from the Vermont
Council on the Arts; a Works on Paper Fellowship from the New England Foundation for the Arts;
and The Middlebury College Friends of the Art Museum Award for Distinction in the Visual Arts.
Recent exhibitions include shows at the Vermont Arts Council in Montpelier, VT; the Furchgott
Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne, VT; and West Branch Gallery in Stowe, VT.
For her exhibition at AVA, Fredericks will show works from her anthill series. Fredericks
states: “For me, the anthill brings forth the archetypal image of the mound, seemingly imprinted in
my imagination and calling to mind mountain, city, hill town, civilization. In response, I draw and
redraw, allowing my imagination to explore the surface, the atmosphere above, its hidden interior,
and what lies below.”
