month, a selection of artwork from the school's classes or instructors
is shown in our gallery space, with an opening on Gallery Walk held
yearly on the first Friday
evening of the month. Our studios and gallery are seen by hundreds of
visitors each month during this popular event. Visitors are able to see
not only the results of the creative work of the students, but also the
working environment. More Information on Brattleboro's Gallery Walk
Printmaking and Encaustics
Students in the Printmaking and Encaustics classes will have a group showing in February at the school's second floor gallery.
A range of beautiful printmaking techniques will be on exhibit along with the ancient practice of encaustic painting, which uses molten wax, pigment and collage to create luminous works. Work from students of Kim Colligan, Helen Schmidt, and Julia Jensen will be included.
Vincent Brandt Retrospective
Vincent Brandt's drawings and paintings will accompany the release of his memoir of life in a Korean fishing village in the 60's. The artist/writer will be on hand to sign copies during Gallery Walk.
Come visit the school (accessible by elevator) and see some of the the results of this semester's work.
