The city was named for the Comte de Vergennes, French Minister of Foreign Affairs and negotiator of the Treaty of Paris.

A historic marker can be found on the east side of Otter Creek where the shipyard once stood.

Hannah Morris: Waiting to Happen 9/1/19 - 10/31/19

Northern Daughters is excited to announce “Waiting to Happen” a solo exhibit of new work from Hannah Morris. This body of work features ten new pieces created with Morris' signature combination of collage and gouache paint. Morris fabricates visual stories and scenes by arranging, refashioning, and building upon found images. When describing the show Morris explained, “These pieces, created over the past half year, are emblematic of my pursuit to piece together new narratives from old images. Using figures, objects and scenes in a collage base layer comprised of bits and pieces from vintage magazines and paper detritus. I use paint to add to or remove from the visual story. At the heart of it, I want to create spaces by removing the excess from a prescribed space, animating seemingly still figures and objects, and make real what seems to be unbelievable.” Morris studied art, writing, and documentary studies at Bates College and then found her way to the Western Cape of South Africa through the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship program. She holds a Master of Philosophy in Visual Arts with a concentration in Narrative Illustration. Morris illustrated and designed an award-winning picture book that was published in Cape Town, and has attended several artist residencies in Brazil, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Her work has been shown in group shows in New York City, Cape Town, and throughout Central Vermont. The exhibition is on view at the gallery’s 221 Main St. location in Vergennes, Vermont from September 1st through October 31st with an opening reception on Friday, September 13th from 5-8pm.
