Now celebrating our 5th year, the Canal Street Art Gallery continues sharing and appreciating incredible, local, art while helping support both the artists who create it and the regional creative economy. CSAG is excited to meet the promotional needs and online commerce demands of the artistic community with its expansive programming of 34 exhibitions in 2022! These include an increased number of Solo Shows, the Represented Artist Show at Main Street Arts, and monthly installations at the Hartford Vermont Welcome Center.


Do come downtown or settle in at home and see the inspiring artworks from these artists; Clare Adams, Spaulding Dunbar, Nancy Fitz-Rapalje, Kathie Gatto-Gurney, Corinne Greenhalgh, Carol Keiser, Nicholas Kekic, Marcie Maynard, Jeanne McMahan, Lisa Eckhardt McNealus, Martha Nichols, Charles Norris-Brown, MC Noyes, Phyllis Rosser, Melissa Rubin, Matthew Saxton, Gretchen Seifert, and Rodrica Tilley. 


Canal Street Art Gallery is honored to introduce their newest represented artists: Mindy Fisher and John van de Does.


Mindy Fisher is based in Bellows Falls, on Canal Street where she works out of her storefront studio. After studying Set Design in Chicago, Fisher focused on painting, cartooning, and animation. Over the past decade Fisher has been creating a series of paintings called “Ornaglyphs”. This work uses gouache, spray, and marker paint on both small panels and large canvases. This series started off as comic panels and has now grown to include clustered, layered abstract paintings. Inspired from observations in swampy areas and studying plant life up close, the subjects featured are a surreal cast of bird-like characters and a hieroglyphic non-language. 


“Each painting is a spontaneous experiment with color and shapes colliding. When people experience my work I want them to get lost and find new things. I love when people tell me what they see.” -Mindy Fisher


John van de Does, Based in Andover, Vermont is a lifelong Yoga practitioner and teacher using the visual tool of creating Yantras. A Yantra is a diagram illustrating sacred geometrical arrangements in a symmetrical design. Usage of Yantras has been practiced since 3300 B.C.. Practitioners use Yantras to emit cosmic positive energies, curb negative energies and help individuals upraise spiritually. Van de Does’s work explores this sacred geometry while also incorporating written and translated Sanskrit. 


The depth of talent and the abundance of amazing artwork that these area Represented Artists have been creating over the last year has been phenomenal! Currently, the public has the opportunity to engage with the art in the Gallery. All these local artists want to share their new work with you. The CSAG community is grateful to everyone for continuing to buy original art offered directly from the artists and for supporting the local creative economy here in Southern Vermont.
