New show; big success

The Guild held the opening for its new show as a Chamber of Commerce mixer in conjunction with Base Camp Outfitters and Cabin Fever Gifts. It was well attended by artists, community business people, local, and out of town visitors. Many new and exciting works of art are included in the show titled "Art and Soul." Sally Curtis, KAG president, said that blown glass interiors by Paedra Bramhall are a unique feature of the show as is an exquisite marble woodpecker sculpture by Robert Pye. She commented that "Our local artists have excelled with work for this show and the watercolor, oil, photography, acrylic, and multi-media pieces will reward the viewer."
Alice Sciore, gallery director, said "the participants appreciated the high quality of the art in the show as well as the looks of the Gallery itself. And they enjoyed the refreshments provided by Phil Black and his chef Peter Millendorf."

The work of the winter-renovating at the gallery; the efforts of the artists and the planning of our Board of Directors with the help and support of Mike and Diane Miller produced a joyous event to open the season.

One of the things Vermont does best is autumn.

Rich McCoy, Judy Storch and Chris Nyberg enjoy the Killington Chamber Mixer at the Killington Arts Guild gallery at Base Camp Outfitters, Tuesday, Sept. 4.

The birch and sugar maples trees among the evergreens create a brilliant background for the small villages with white church steeples, covered bridges, and the red barns.

This is the time before the first leaves of autumn fall. The weeks and days ahead will be full of clear, vivid blue skies, mounds of harvested vegetables, bouquets of yellow, orange, maroon, violet and purple chrysanthemums. This is the time to pause and enjoy the fruits of summer before "the wheel turns." Enjoy Vermont inside and out.

The public and visitors to the area are invited to come up to the second-floor Gallery, open every day 9:30 to 5:30, above Cabin Fever Gifts, opposite Killington Road.

The show is called "Art and Soul." No official words have been written by KAG poets on that theme but Stella Adler wrote these provocative lines, "Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds us that we have one."
