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
One of her most striking creations is an elegant, graceful angel
painted on watercolor paper, cut and mounted in a display case. The

The show also includes new work by other members of the guild.
Exhibit highlights include Robert Pye's marble owl titled "Saw

watercolors by Maurie Harrington. Our beautiful Vermont is always
an inspiration and there are many images reminding us of the

residents love. Animals are also well represented at the show from
Ann Day's simple little cat "Apple" to a horse running with the

All of our member artists are talented and all have a story to
tell. As a child, Jerry Munger, saved three hundred bazooka

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
