The art of display

The new show at the Killington Arts Gallery features the art of Nancy Enderlin Pisano. It begins at the top of the stairs with her colorful picture of a barn in the Adirondacks, enters the first room briefly and then takes up most of the space in the second. Nancy's work has strong colors, well-defined details and a deep sense of dimension. She loves nature walkways with trees and leaves. She uses oil paintings, multimedia and glass mirrors for her art. One picture in the show is of a birch tree using real bark from the tree.

On the stairs and in the second room are many of the small works of Guild members and the center of the second room contains sculptures, particularly those of Alice Sciore. One piece is a black marble sheet covered with the impressions of prehistoric life selected and mounted by Robert Pye.

Pye is a new member of the KAG, and on August 20 his Mount Carmel Mable Sculpting facility in Chittenden will be the sight of KAG field trip.

Gallery Director Alice Sciore, was just putting finishing touches on the show as I came with Janine for a preview. Mike Young had not yet put up the information about individual pieces.  Alice is very excited because the Town of Killington and the Millers have shown an interest in allowing KAG to place a logo on the front of the building, which is owned by the Millers.

Part of the first Gallery is closed for renovations, but I have noticed wherever I go other businesses have the same work-in-progress going on while they carry on their regular business.

Nancy Neyerlin Pisano was featured in this column in early March when she was elected to the KAG Board of Directors and will be giving classes on Glass Mosaic Mirrors as part of KAG's contribution to Summerfest in July. This is the second year she has been one of the Summerfest artists.

The current show continues until August 18 and is open to the public without charge. The KAG Gallery is located upstairs at Base Camp Outfitter/Cabin Fever Gifts, 2363 Route 4, Killington, VT, opposite the entrance to the Killington Access Road.
