New Chaffee Art Center exhibit opens

Jan. 14 at 5 p.m. — RUTLAND — The Chaffee Art Center, Your Center for Creativity, invites the community to the opening of a new exhibit, “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” with solo featured galleries of work by photographer Lowell Snowden Klock and fine artist Heather Wilson.

There will also be an installation to celebrate Black History Month with artistic works and historical content.  February is Black History Month, which started as a method of remembrance of vital events and people in the history of the African diaspora. Today, it is an important month of both remembrance, recognition, and education. It is a time for people of any color to look at the incredible figures in Black history, and to raise awareness about the issues that are still present in society in terms of racism.  Importantly, it is a great opportunity for people from all walks of life to broaden their horizons and expand their understanding.  The Chaffee Art Center believes art has the power to transform lives and communities.

Join the exhibit opening on Friday, Jan. 14 from 5-7 p.m. Masks are required.  There is no charge for admittance. A donation would be greatly appreciated.

Chaffee artist members will also have work on display and for sale in the upstairs galleries, as well as in the Gallery Shoppe.

This exhibit will be up until Feb. 25.

As the Chaffee celebrates 61 years as an art center in the Rutland Community, it also invites joining as an artist, single or family member to help the Chaffee to continue to inspire and cultivate creativity, while positively impacting the vitality of our community through the arts.
