“Two Sides of a Dream” – Adrien Broom

Photographer and set designer Adrien Broom presents her exhibition “Two Sides of a Dream.” Broom travels world-wide to create her fantastical scenes. The Wilson Museum will feature two bodies of Broom’s work—”The Color Project” and “Holding Space.”

“There, Through the Broken Branches, Go” – Patty Hudak

“There, Through the Broken Branches, Go,” responds to the experience of moving through the woodlands of Vermont. The seven panels of transparent fabric, each measuring 15 feet in height, are painted with pigments. They hang adjacent to each other, creating a transparent veil that invites the viewer to contemplate the act of passing through.

Southern Vermont Arts Center is located at 930 SVAC Drive in Manchester. For more information visit svac.org.
