An opening reception and artists’ talk for three new exhibitions at the Helen Day Art Center — “Reliefs” by artist Dusty Boynton, “On the Hunt” from artist Suzy Spence, and “Composing Form” — will be held Saturday, June 22 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the gallery, 90 Pond St. in Stowe. Boynton, known for her monoprints and paintings on canvas, will highlight her sculptural reliefs. These works, created by multiple monoprints cut up and reconstructed, are created in a humorous and emotive way, eliciting joy, but simultaneously something deeper. In Suzy Spence’s paintings, equestrians roam over bucolic landscapes or cluster in psychologically charged groupings, fierce and elegant. The exhibition joins New York and Vermont-based Spence’s love of horseback riding with her keen attention to the urgent political currents of our time. In the group exhibition “Composing Form,” artists from Puerto Rico, Estonia, China and the United States, work within the medium of ceramics to explore a range of complex narratives, historical references, and formal concerns through a muted palette that speaks at once to the poetics of form and human experience. The artists Robin Best, Cristina Córdova, Sin-Ying Ho, Sergei Isupov, Kadri Pärnamets, Tara Thacker and Jerilyn Virden bring with them a variety of histories and stories that sculpt their realities and inform their aesthetics. A panel discussion will also be held Friday, Aug. 2, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with Boynton, Spence, and writer, art historian and “On the Hunt” curator Amy Rahn. The exhibits are on display until Aug. 24. helenday.com.
