Art’s Alive Presents
Art’s Alive would like to welcome the show “The Old Neighborhood – Paintings and Sculptures by Robert Waldo Brunelle JR” to The Gallery (Lake and College) at Main St. Landing, May and June, 2017. Brunelle’s new series of paintings, “The Old Neighborhood” are inspired by vintage photographs taken in his old home town of Rutland, and other locations in Vermont, between 1850 and 1950. He has collected 19th century photography since he was a boy and likes to think of these photos as time machines. He imagines the colors and sounds that were happening the moment the photographer took that picture. In addition to these paintings, this new show features a few of his amusing kinetic sculptures. He began making these when he was the art teacher at the Browns River Middle School. Like most art teachers, he was a pack rat, and his classroom was filled with odds and ends of various materials, which eventually found their way into these sculptures. The sculptures are fun to make, because they allow him to forget about subject matter, and instead, concentrate purely on form and color.
