Friday, May 3, 4 p.m.—RUTLAND—The Chaffee Art Center is proud to again showcase young artists from over 25 Vermont public/private schools and homeschool groups in grades K-12 for the annual student exhibit. This year’s theme, It’s All About The Arts, expresses passion and commitment to encompass all of the arts. 

The community is invited to the opening reception on Friday, May 3 from 4-6:30 p.m. There will be light refreshments, music and a variety of creative works of art on display throughout the building.

The Chaffee takes great pleasure in presenting the opportunity for these artistic young people to be inspired by seeing their work, and the works of others, displayed in the professional gallery housed in an 1890s historic mansion. 

Chaffee extends a special thank you to all of the teachers, parents, family and friends who encourage young artists to explore the arts, as well as to the artists who continue to amaze and inspire.

The student exhibit will be on display until June 7. The Chaffee Art Gallery is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 12-5 p.m.; and Saturday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
