Chaffee pop-up exhibit features Steve Costello

Friday, Sept. 23 at 11 a.m.—RUTLAND—The Chaffee Art Center is pleased to share “Eye on Nature: Photographs by Steve Costello” on Friday, Sept. 23 from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., and again on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
The public is welcome to visit the Chaffee Art Center located at 16 South Main Street, for a pop-up exhibit of Steve Costello’s photography. This is the first time for Costello to publicly share his work, and the Chaffee is honored to begin a relationship with him as an artist.
Steve Costello, a vice president at Green Mountain Power, lives in Rutland Town. His approach to photography has been largely influenced by three things: a love of nature, a previous career in journalism, and a grandmotherly wildlife advocate named Meeri Zetterstrom, who introduced him to ospreys and fed his passion for wildlife.
“I am honored to show this collection of wildlife photos at the Chaffee, and pleased to support it,” Costello said.  “I have never been focused on commercial sales—in fact, I’ve never sold a print before—but welcome the opportunity to help benefit this incredibly valuable institution in our community.”
For more information, visit chaffeeartcenter.org or call 802-775-0356.

Photo By Steve Costello
“Every spring I paddle at Lake Arrowhead in Milton so I can try to capture at least one good photograph of an osprey. The pilgrimage began as part of my job, continued for years as a commitment to wildlife advocate Meeri Zetterstrom, and continues today as an opportunity to reconnect spiritually with her long after her death.  As I float on the flat water, which is now sprinkled with four to six massive nests every spring, each osprey encounter is a reminder of her vision and leadership in making their recovery a reality.  If not for her, this photo, shot this past spring, simply would not exist.” —Steve Costello
