Polonaise Gallery, Woodstock, VT           (right) All Grown Up, painting by Kristin Abraham, 24 x 30", acrylic on canvas

Conceptual Art Brought  to Woodstock, Vermont
When Kristin Abraham and Alfonso Llamas brought The Nomadic Project to Vermont, it was the city of Woodstock that was chosen to participate. Vermont is the thirty-eighth state to be connected through art, as Polonaise Gallery displays a single painting from the Nomadic Series, until the end of December 2006.

Gallery owner, Wojtek Pilczynski, made the young artists feel at home, as he welcomed them to Woodstock. Polonaise Gallery, is an exciting display of traditional and contemporary art, and The Nomadic Project is proud to exhibit in the elegant space. "All Grown Up," is the piece that Abraham and Llamas placed in Vermont, but it was inspired by Abraham's home state of New York.

By the end of this year, all fifty states will be displaying a single canvas. freshly painted by emerging artist, Kristin Abraham. Thirty-eight states are currently participating, as they display a piece that was inspired by a neighboring state. Abraham, and musician, Alfonso Llamas, have been on the road for eleven months, traveling from state to state, to illustrate their experiences through art. This body of work, in the making, will become part of a traveling exhibit in November of 2007.  

The Nomadic Project was created as a way to inspire and educate individuals through art. With that said, the work touches base with emotional, physical and historical elements that lie within the land that we call America. In order to realize this goal, the artist's, Abraham and Llamas, fit their lives into a Honda Element and hit the road. When The Nomadic Exhibit begins touring in 2007, it will be the first time that all fifty paintings are displayed together, illustrating how the artist's style evolves through outside influences. The work will be joined by music, journal entries, and video.

Abraham and Llamas also encourage participation by individuals in every state, as they finish their journey of the U.S.  Each email that they receive will become part of the final exhibit. Paintings can also be purchased by contacting Abraham (abrahamart@gmail.com), or directly through participating galleries. The project is entirely self-funded, so each sale goes into making this concept a reality. The owner will receive an engraved nameplate to be displayed with their piece, as well as a signed print to display as their painting tours the U.S.
