Those who attended the Thanksgiving Reception at the Killington
Arts Guild found how bright and uplifting the gallery is with its
walls filled with the finest efforts of local artists. Many came
for the first time. The PEG TV videographer arrived as promised and
interviewed everyone. They told him about the Guild and their
enthusiasm enhances the brightness of Gallery. It is the darkest
season, with the shortest days; the sun hangs low on the southern
horizon, dark clouds move into the mountains. It can be gloomy.
This is the time to go for the light.
A year or so ago Cinda Peyton who is associated with the Rutland
county Office on Aging gave a program for KAG in the Sherburne
Memorial Library on "How to Find J in Your Life." Cinda said,
"Look for what makes you feel good and go for it. Go for the
light." The last verse of a poem about that evening reads "The
meeting ends. We have cookies and tea. George sits down and plays
the piano. We form a conga line and dance. That's how it should be,
that's what lights us up like a Christmas tree."
Other places that have lightened our spirits include Liquid Art
where KAG members go for coffee, a light snack and art on display;
including the works of KAG artists. Recently, members have visited
the Snow Angel, a restaurant run by Victoria and her brother Gorgi,
native Bulgarians. It is located where Kicks used to be, and
Barbara's before that, on Rte. 4 going west from Killington. There
is an historic painting of Pico Ski Area in the front room.
Good food, atmosphere, and of course, art- the work of KAG member
Judy Gould is featured on the walls.
The Holiday Festival of Trees is in the Grand Hotel. KAG's tree
titled "Trees Pretty Please" features glittering ornaments shaped
like trees. KAG members worked hard on the festival. The Potluck
Trio played and sang and we went for the light, again.
The Killington Arts Guild Winter show, "Art in Your Life," has
been rescheduled for February. There will be a reception on
February 18, 2011. Bring new pieces February 13-14 9:30 a.m. - 6
The KAG Gallery open every business day is at Cabin Fever Gifts on
Rte. 4 opposite the Killington Access Road. KAG website
