Cynthia-Reeves New England Gallery "Pops Up" on Flat Street

Cynthia-Reeves New England originally opened in 1985 under the name Spheris in Walpole, New Hampshire. After spending the past seven years in Hanover, New Hampshire, the gallery is planning a return to Walpole in the summer of 2014. In the interim, they are mounting a series of exhibitions in a "pop-up" gallery space at 47 Flat Street in Brattleboro, the building that formerly housed Sanel Auto Parts.

These shows are an extension of the ground-breaking exhibitions of contemporary art curated by the gallery since 2009 -- exhibitions such as H2O Film on Water, Fabrications, and Conference of the Birds. Through their dynamic exhibition program, an on-going presence at art fairs both here and abroad, and with the vanguard of curatorial projects, Cynthia-Reeves has become a significant voice in contemporary art both in New England and in New York.

The first exhibition in their temporary Brattleboro home is CHOATE/CHAOS, which explores the tension between these two states as seen through the lens of six international artists in their respective medium of painting, video, or sculpture. Included are works by Shen Chen, Michael Mulhern, Lee Jung Woong, Magdelena Fernandez, Oliver Marsden, and George Sherwood. The opening reception is scheduled for this month's Gallery Walk on November 1, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. -- otherwise gallery hours will be from 10 to 5 on Tuesday through Saturday.

For further info, stop by the gallery to meet Azariah Aker, Associate Director -- phone: (802) 579-1029, e-mail: -- or visit online at
