Vermont artist, Fran Bull, presents “Stations” exhibit at two Rutland galleries

Sept. 24-Oct. 25 — RUTLAND — The Chaffee Downtown and Castleton Downtown Galleries, both located in downtown Rutland, are pleased to be collaborating together to feature local Vermont artist Fran Bull. Entitled “Stations,” the exhibit will feature 14 large-scale multi-media constructions in high relief, which Bull refers to as “sculptural paintings.” Each piece depicts scenarios unfolding on the night stage of human existence, the bed.

“As I make my art, I am attracted to the rough places and to the archetypal realms where myth holds sway,” said Bull.

The exhibit runs from Sept. 24 through Oct. 25, with a double opening reception scheduled for both locations on Friday, Sept. 26 at 5 p.m. Bull will also give an artist talk on Wednesday, Oct.15 at 7 p.m. at the Paramount Theater in Rutland. Both galleries will host receptions after the talk from 8:30-9:30 for the public to view the exhibit.

The two galleries exist approximately 100 yards away from each other: Chaffee Downtown Gallery is located at 75 Merchants Row with hours of operation Tuesday through Friday, 12 – 6 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.; and the Castleton Downtown Gallery is located in Center Street Alley with hours of operation Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
