Radius 50

Date : July 17, 2021

Thrilled to be exhibiting in Radius 50 at Woodstock Artists Association (WAAM).

July 31 – September 12, 2021

Radius 50 is an exhibition of works by artists living and working within 50 miles of Woodstock. Of the 172 submissions for this exhibition, jurors Alyson Baker and Candice Madey of River Valley Arts Collective chose works by 13 artists who are responding to and reflecting on diverse aspects of the rural environments in which they live. The artists bring to bear the influence of their immediate landscape in both materiality and subject matter with local geography, histories, traditions, and natural resources forming the context for a broader dialogue about the relationship between artist and place.

What does Emily Dickinson mean to me?

Date : May 15, 2021

Today seems fitting to highlight a project launched by the Emily Dickinson Museum, for May 15th marks the day Emily Dickinson was “Called Back”.  

“My Emily Dickinson: at the Emily Dickinson Museum a Video Gallery and Story Collection Project

In honor of Emily Dickinson’s 190th birthday in December of 2020, the Museum collected your stories from around the world. So many of us feel a deep connection to Dickinson’s life, her poetry, or to both. Some of us read her work as young students in school and become curious about the woman who lowered gingerbread from her window; others of us do not find Dickinson until we are older and her poetry’s themes of loss and hope begin to resonate profoundly; still others find that Dickinson’s wit and fierce individuality is a touchstone. This project sought to document the many Emily Dickinsons that exist in the hearts of contemporary readers. We received fifty participant videos from as close as Amherst to as far away as Albania. 

This video gallery offers a range of perspectives on Dickinson from a diverse group of her readers who generously shared their stories of strange Dickinson encounters, first meetings, and deeply felt connection. We are very grateful to these story-tellers and we hope you enjoy their collective message of Dickinson’s enduring relevance in our lives today.”

“When they come back–if Blossoms do–“

Date : April 22, 2021

Very honored to re-install, “When they come back–if Blossoms do–” at Wave Hill for the 2021 Art & Nature Entwined Gala honoring Jennifer McGregor. The work will be on view during the Gala and for the weekend of May 21-23, 2021. [Please note advance reservations are required, info at WaveHill.org]

Wave Hill notes, “For more than two decades, Jennifer curated indoor and outdoor exhibitions, immersive theater performances and experimental dance and music. She also served as a mentor and advocate for artists by launching the Winter Workspace Artist Residency and Sunroom Project series, two important artist-incubator programs. By providing opportunities for both artists and audiences to discover and engage with the natural world, Jennifer set Wave Hill apart from museums and gardens across the country.”

“When they come back-if Blossoms do-” was and is a collaboration with the interpretive gardeners at Wave Hill.  In 2007, I worked closely with Charles Day and in 2021, Jess Brey is my collaborator.  This type of a project–collaborations between interpretive gardeners and artists–exemplifies the thoughtful work done by Jennifer McGregor at Wave Hill.

“When they come back–if Blossoms do–“ a series of copper plant labels linking plants grown and written about by Emily Dickinson with the same plants growing at Wave Hill. Originally installed in 2007 in the exhibition ‘Emily Dickinson Rendered.’ This project was a collaboration with WH’s Horticultural Interpreter, Charles Day. [Image by Benjamin Swett].

Honeycutt Studio in the Hired Men’s Shop at Hancock Shaker Village

 

The Shakers lived in a colorful world. Their architecture, interiors, furniture, and clothing reverberated with surprising brilliancy. At Hancock Shaker Village, artist-in-residence Brece Honeycutt has been exploring the Shaker palette of yellows, blues, reds, and greens, experimenting with natural dyes and pigments she creates from Hancock’s gardens and forests. Moderated by curator Sarah Margolis-Pineo, this conversation will provide an overview of Honeycutt’s ongoing research, mining the collection of Hancock Shaker Village to showcase the colors of the Shakers.

The artist residency is supported by Artists at Work, a new program designed to give artists resources to continue to produce work during the immediate health and economic crisis brought by COVID, and to build new structures and partnerships that will help to sustain the creative sector in a post-pandemic America.

Very honored to participate in The Common Thread series, “A collaboration between the Nature Lab and Southeastern New England Fibershed, The Common Thread virtual series will explore the commonalities within the systems of land, waste, material, and color and how they can intersect with various modes of thought to drive positive change.”

The Common Thread with Brece Honeycutt and Laurie Brewer is available to watch via this link

On October 7 at 12 PM Eastern time for the fourth and final live session of The Common Thread virtual series with Natural Dyer + Textile Artist + Hancock Shaker Museum Artist-in-Residence, Brece Honeycutt, and RISD Museum Costume & Textiles Associate Curator + RISD Apparel Faculty Member, Laurie Brewer.

“Honeycutt follows Shaker creed as resident artist”

Date : August 12, 2020

“Brece Honeycutt creates art that looks as if it was made decades or perhaps centuries ago—artifacts that appear to have been excavated from the soil, aged by water and earth and embedded with the imprints of weeds and wildflowers. Her work is inspired by nature, age-old techniques and the passage of time, which makes it a seamless fit with the history and culture of Hancock Shaker Village, where she is the artist-in-residence for the next six months.”

Honeycutt follows Shaker creed as resident artist,” Tresca Weinstein, Albany Times Union, August 10, 2020


Boston Globe & Artnet News

Date : July 25, 2020

Thanks to the Boston Globe and Artnet News for their recent articles on the AAW program.


“Camphill and Hancock are both such amazingly beautiful places,” said Honeycutt, a Sheffield native who works in fiber, natural dyeing, printmaking, sculpture, and bookbinding. “Both places emphasize working with your hands to make a connection with the land and foster this sense of community I love.” Article by Diti Kohli and images by Craig F. Walker.



 

““The WPA not only recognized artists as workers with the dignity that entails, but also utilized the crucial purpose of art in our society to make meaning of the world, to illuminate our own stories for us, and to create empathy for others,” Chanoff said. “We are at a precipice now where we are called to use every tool we have as a community to work together to heal the commonwealth.” Article by Sarah Cascacone & above image by Monika Sosnowski.


Thrilled to be in the group exhibition, Everyday Perfection at the Albany International Airport Gallery on view until September 2, 2019.  

Gallery open daily 7am until 11pm.
