“Aimless Pilgrimage II” is one of Danielle Klebes’ oil paintings on display at Rutland’s 77 Gallery.

Sunday, Nov. 11, 2 p.m.—RUTLAND— Danielle Klebes, oil painter from North Adams, Massachusetts, brings her recent body of work, “Aimless Pilgrimage,” to 77 Gallery with an opening reception to be held on Sunday, Nov. 11,2-4 p.m., with live music and free refreshments. Klebes will exhibit about 30 large-scale oil paintings at Rutland’s largest gallery at 77 Grove St. until Jan. 11.

The main subjects for this body of artwork are people who are in a state of flux. The figures in Klebes’ paintings, captured in moments of uncertainty and isolation, are close in proximity but emotionally distant. She positions them in liminal natural environments – the sun is setting or storms are approaching – with no clear entrance or exit pathway. There is a sense of the in-between without a clear narrative regarding what comes next.

The reception and gallery are free and open to the public. Public Hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. 77 Gallery is physically accessible to visitors who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids, and those who prefer not to use stairs, by the rear entrance.
