Central Vermont's Most Popular Weekly Newspaper

Art and expression on display at KAG Gallery


By Gerrie Russell, Killington Arts Guild
The Killington Arts Guild held an opening reception on Saturday, Nov. 23, to celebrate their new show "Art and Expression" featuring Alice Sciore, KAG co-founder and gallery director.
The depth of Alice's talent is quite apparent and everyone who sees the show will quickly find a favorite piece. From watercolor to sculpture to illustrated poetry, Alice creates from the heart.
One of her most striking creations is an elegant, graceful angel painted on watercolor paper, cut and mounted in a display case. The angel was originally used as the focal point on a tree decorated for the Festival of Trees last year. Alice is comfortable using many mediums and will not hesitate to combine paint, wood and graphics. Each piece is an adventure.
The show also includes new work by other members of the guild. Exhibit highlights include Robert Pye's marble owl titled "Saw Whet," "Spring Buds" oil painting by Nancy Neyerlin-Pisano, and new watercolors by Maurie Harrington. Our beautiful Vermont is always an inspiration and there are many images reminding us of the mountains, valleys and waterfalls that visitors are awed by and residents love. Animals are also well represented at the show from Ann Day's simple little cat "Apple" to a horse running with the wind by Christine Orcutt Henderson. This particular show features many interesting pieces of sculpture in wood, glass and marble.
All of our member artists are talented and all have a story to tell. As a child, Jerry Munger, saved three hundred bazooka bubblegum wrappers to get a brownie camera. Now, his digital photography, some mounted on special linen paper with different exposures, is exhibited in our gallery. Notice his waterfalls and please note that they are all accessible by foot.
If you are visiting Killington, stop by the gallery. The gallery is located upstairs at Cabin Fever/Base Camp on Rt. 4 across from the base of the Killington Access Road.  For more info visit www.killingtonartsguild.org.
