Family of artists featured
BRATTLEBORO - A trio of Halifax artists are being spotlighted in “Eggshells & Cheekbones,” a gallery show at 118 Elliot, which will run for the month of September.
The show presents recent work by Alison Crossley, Tristan Roberts, and Felix Roberts, a family of three who make art together and who are all now showing their work for the first time. Crossley shares a painting studio with Roberts’ 10-year-old son Felix while Roberts sculpts outside with rocks and boulders on the land, a process he documents through photographs and stories.
Tristan Roberts is known to readers of the Brattleboro Reformer via his regular column “This Spot on Earth.” Visitors to 118 Elliot will recognize his storytelling, in which he doesn’t shy away from uncomfortable eggshell-laden topics.
They will see it extended into stone sculptures on his farm in Halifax and gallery installations that include documentary photographs by Guilford resident Kelly Fletcher. Each piece invites the viewer to participate in completing the telling of a story.
The paintings and land art installations remain on view at 118 Elliot for the month of September. For more information or to check the schedule visit alisoncrossley.org or call (704) 441-5338.
