It’s all about snow

This week wherever you went it was snowing and those who were not skiing were entertaining themselves with books, drinks, food and sleep. The Lucky Duck Lake Club from Pennsylvania took time after skiing at Pico to build a gingerbread house.

More serious business was going on at the Killington Arts Guild Gallery above Cabin Fever at the Killington Access Road and by email. The Board was working on a major exhibit for Paedra Bramhall. Because of the large and dynamic nature of Paedra's pieces the main Gallery will be devoted to her work while other members will display theirs in the adjoining room and foyer. Other shows for which we will also have featured artists will share both rooms.

Future shows include Nancy Neyerlin Pisano: May 18 through Aug. 10, opening reception May 25; Susan Wacker-Donle: Aug. 24 through Nov. 17, opening reception Aug. 31; and Alice Sciore: Nov. 23 through Feb. 9, 2014, opening reception Nov.23. Mark your calendar and in the ski season make viewing art one of your after-skiing activities.

Paedra's exhibit will be displayed Feb. 10 through May 10 with an opening reception on Feb. 16. Jerry LeBlond, Alice Sciore, Sally Curtis and her husband John Brennan are responsible for publicity and will assist in hanging the gallery. Each Gallery show is planned to take advantage of a holiday. Paedra's show in February correlates with President's Day.
