BAG has new paintings

Friday, May 4, 5 p.m.—BRANDON—The Brandon Artists Guild (the BAG) presents the new paintings of Dave Fifield. This new collection of paintings titled “Head In The Clouds” runs May 4 to June 26. The public is invited to the opening reception Friday, May 4 from 5-7 p.m.

Fifield grew up in Vermont and graduated from UVM, where he studied studio art and philosophy. He became interested in abstract art almost as soon as he started taking courses.

Fifield said, “I am fascinated by the infinite possibilities of abstract art. I almost feel like it’s more about discovery than creation. Not knowing how a particular painting is going to resolve is what is exciting about it. There is a freedom and wonder to the process that can be very satisfying. ‘Head in the Clouds’ felt like a good phrase to encapsulate the work.”

The show is part of Vermont Arts 2018 – a year-long celebration highlighting arts events across the state, sponsored by the Vermont Arts Council.

The BAG, at 7 Center St. in Brandon, is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, call 802-247-4956 or visit
