November 2020: Roxcell Bartholomew

Growing up in the caribbean meant that nature was never far away. This was something I did not appreciate until I moved to an apartment complex in New Jersey. Luckily, I found a new yet familiar vibe when I first moved to Brattleboro a few years ago. I fell in love with all the nearby hills and rivers as they reminded me of the beautiful landscapes of my childhood.  During my first week here, I made my way up the stairs of the River gallery school and signed up for a plein-air workshop. Painting outdoors quickly became a way for me to explore the land and connect with friends. I was instantly hooked on the experience and have been painting the outdoors for the past two years.

Jason Breen

Born in 1969, Jason Breen grew up in rural Connecticut in the cabin his family built
during his childhood. He studied instrument building, first in West Virginia with Wayne
Henderson, then with Gib Taylor at Marlboro College, earning a BA in 1992. During his college
years, Mr. Breen worked with Elliot and Geri Coleman farming in Vershire, Vermont. After
graduating he stayed in Marlboro and worked with MacArthur Builders as a house carpenter and
timber-framer for six years. In 1998 he married and opened his own shop, alternately farming
and woodworking for several years at Fair Winds Farm in Brattleboro, Vt where he lived with his
wife's family.


A member of the Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers and Brattleboro West Arts, Mr
Breen has shown work around the state in group exhibits. Although much of his work has been
custom orders, he has recently been building pieces of his own design with the hope of
encouraging a love for place and community.


In 2004 a growing Breen family moved to a new house in West Brattleboro where they
homestead, produce maple syrup, build furniture, raise hay and two children and invite friends
and neighbors to help and learn. Mr. Breen makes sounds with a guitar in his spare time.

My background as an architect and my connection with the natural world can be discerned in my paintings. My media include acrylic, watercolor, prismacolor and ink as well as collage.
 
Currently a member of Brattleboro-West Arts, I have been an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center and in Dinan, France. My work has been shown in various venues around Brattleboro, at the Kent Museum and the Sourdiffe Fourchgott and Crowell Galleries in Vermont and in galleries at the Stony Creek Library and Congregation Beth Shalom, at the Essex Art Association and at the Chester Gallery in Connecticut.
