Vermont Events in April

The Art of Technology - Exhibit 3/5/21 - 4/16/21

The Exhibit will feature: -Peter Wallis with animation and art in two of our first-floor galleries. As an artist, he is interested in where the sacred and mundane exist in a liminal space of the past, present and dreams. His work is a collection of objects and places set in a landscape of memory that connects these objects to where he has been and where he is going. This recent body of work is a bildungsroman series that tells the story of his childhood in Vermont and Maine with the layers of history of New England and California coming together in a shared space. -Robert Gold, solo gallery with photography of images. His photographs use combined technologies and accidental discoveries, plus good old fashioned free hand all combined. -Robert Waldo Brunelle Jr. pieces of kinetic art. -Castleton University Art Department with student work and a unique light display in many of the mansion windows. Chaffee artist members will also have work on display and for sale in the upstairs galleries, as well as in the Gallery Shoppe that is filled with handmade treasures and gift ideas for any occasion, or even for yourself! This exhibit will be up until April 16th. As we celebrate 60 years as an art center in the Rutland Community, we also invite you to join as an artist, single or family member to help the Chaffee to continue to inspire and cultivate creativity, while positively impacting the vitality of our community through the arts.
