Chaffee opens new exhibit


Saturday, July 8 at 3 p.m.—RUTLAND— The Chaffee Art Center invites the community to the opening reception of  a new exhibit “Mythic and Quotidian” featuring Fran Bull and Peter Wallis on Saturday, July 8 from 3–5 p.m. 

Stop by and enjoy a glass of sangria, talk with the artists, and explore their work in the first-floor galleries.  There is no charge to attend. Donations appreciated.

“My collaborator, architect Robert Black and I, will show the acclaimed installation, ‘We’re All At a Party Called Life On Earth!’ configured especially for the Chaffee gallery. The installation of painted sculpture and works on paper emerged out of the Covid pandemic and celebrates the unity of humans and all creatures on planet earth. I am excited and honored to be showing art alongside rising star artist, Peter Wallis,” said artist Fran Bull.  

Chaffee artist members’ work will be on display and for sale on the grand staircase and throughout the upstairs galleries, as well as in the gallery shop that is filled with affordable handmade treasures and gift ideas for any occasion. This exhibit will be on display until Aug. 18. 

Plan to visit the Chaffee during expanded summer open hours to experience the beauty of the 1890s Queen Anne Victorian Mansion and the wonderful works of art throughout.  The Chaffee Art Center is also available to book events (bridal shower, wedding, birthday, meeting, or retreat). It’s a beautiful mansion, fondly known by its first owners as Sunny Gables.

Summer hours: Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 7 p.m.; Friday from noon to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 10 a.m-2 p.m. Private appointments available by request.

Chaffee Art Center is located at 16 So. Main St. in Rutland.
