This time of year art is all around us in spectacular foliage,
blue skies and rolling clouds, at the Farmer's Market, at Art in
the Park, in the Halloween figures, and in the transformed bails of
hay in Killington. Art galleries in Central Vermont also
capture this beauty with unique expressions through various
mediums of art.
Gallery in-the-Field, in Brandon, Vt., is currently featuring
Robert Black, a very talented artist, who is showcasing an
installation titled "The Memory Chamber". Black is an architect,
artist and teacher with a gift of conveying the importance of art
and the joy of creating it. The installation is an orchestral walk
through experience involving sound, site, touch and smell.
Recently, I lead a group from the Gables at East Mountain in
Rutland and Patsy Zedar, a photographer, through this gallery. Fran
Bull the Gallery Director and owner (and also an internationally
known artist) greeted us. Before entering the exhibit, Black
introduced the most important features of the chambers. Of
particular interest was a chamber with primitive cave drawings,
ancient drums and a slide presentation of art through places and
Black gave a lecture on art in the studio using words as the keys
to ideas, saying "imagination" contains "magic." After experiencing
Black's art, the group expressed a sense of being transported in
time and place.
Earlier this summer, Jill Dye took her Killington
Art Class to Gallery-in-the-Field and also strongly recommends it.
