Here’s What We’re Gonna Do, an exhibition of prints and drawings by Mildred Beltré

University of Vermont’s Colburn Gallery located on the 3rd floor of Williams Hall

October 4-22, 2010

An opening reception will be held on Wednesday October 6th from 5:30-7pm.  There will be an informal gallery talk at 6pm.

In this series Mildred Beltré uses the idea of the schematic (which is by definition an oversimplification) to talk about things that are too big to talk about. Borrowing imagery from disparate sources (West African religion, past and current radical political movements and sports) she attempts to describe relationships in the world both as they are and how they might be.

Born and raised in New York City, Mildred Beltré received her undergraduate degree at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. She continued her tour of the midwest by studying at the University of Iowa (Iowa City, IA) where she received an MA and an MFA in printmaking and photography.
She has shown at Five Myles Gallery in Brooklyn, NY; Jaffe-Freide Gallery, Dartmouth College, NH;  Load of Fun Gallery, Baltimore,  MD;  NYSG, New York, NY and Atrium Gallery, Western Nevada College, ND, among others. She has been awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts grant in printmaking and drawing as well as a residencies at the Lower East Side printshop and the Vermont Studio Center. This summer she received a New Yorkers for Better Neighborhoods Award  from the Citizens Committee, for a public art project exploring community through art-making. Traveling between Queen City and Kings County, Mildred Beltré is an artist, a popular educator, a mom, and a professor at the University of Vermont.
