Chaffee’s Art of Technology exhibit opens March 5

Friday, March 5 at 7 p.m.—RUTLAND—The Chaffee Art Center— Your Center for Creativity invites the community to the opening of its new exhibit, “The Art of Technology on March 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  An RSVP is required to attend.

The exhibit will feature:

Peter Wallis, with animation and art in two of our first-floor galleries.  As an artist, he is interested in where the sacred and mundane exist in a liminal space of the past, present and dreams.  His work is a collection of objects and places set in a landscape of memory that connects these objects to where he has been and where he is going.
This recent body of work is a coming-of-age series that tells the story of his childhood in Vermont and Maine with the layers of history of New England and California coming together in a shared space.

Robert Gold, solo gallery with photography of images.  His photographs use combined technologies and accidental discoveries, plus good old fashioned free hand all combined.

Robert Waldo Brunelle Jr., pieces of kinetic art.

Castleton University Art Department, with student work and a unique light display in many of the mansion windows.

Chaffee artist members will also have work on display and for sale in the upstairs galleries, as well as in the Gallery Shoppe that is filled with handmade treasures and gift ideas for any occasion, or even for yourself! This exhibit will be up until April 16.

Please RSVP as a limited number of attendees will be allowed at one time in the mansion.  Reserve your half hour time slot:  5 p.m.; 5:30 p.m.; 6 p.m.; 6:30 p.m. Call 802-775-0356 or email [email protected] to reserve. There is no charge for admittance. A donation would be greatly appreciated.

As it celebrates 60 years as an art center in the Rutland Community, Chaffee also invites you to join as an artist, single or family member to help the Chaffee to continue to inspire and cultivate creativity, while positively impacting the vitality of the community through the arts.

Visit the Chaffee during open hours to experience the beauty of the 1890s historic building and the wonderful works of art throughout, plus our Gallery Shoppe!  While here, picture your next event, bridal shower, wedding, meeting, or retreat being held in this Queen Anne style mansion, known to its first owners as Sunny Gables.
