RUTLAND — Chaffee Art Center’s annual Holiday Boutique opened Nov. 19 at the Chaffee Art Center, 16 S. Main Street, Rutland.
“This exhibit marks the end of another great year for the Chaffee; a year during which our board, members and staff have worked tirelessly to continue to broaden the Chaffee Art Center’s presence in our Rutland Community,” stated Margaret Barros, Executive Director. Gallery three will be hung during the holiday exhibit. The public is welcome to join and enjoy the work of juried artists in gallery one and two and to view a photo display of pictures depicting the renovations completed under the Save America’s Treasures Grant. The grant was successfully closed.
