The Gathering: A show by the members of Valley Arts

Through July 2, 2016

Festival Gallery, 5031 Main Street (#2 Village Square, next to Tempest Books), Waitsfield, Vermont

Gallery Hours: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 1-5 pm 

Opening Reception: Sunday, April 3, 5-7 pm, Festival Gallery. Free admission – all welcome! Light refreshments will be served.

Forty-seven Valley Arts members are participating in this year’s show, which features works in watercolor, oil, acrylic, as well at stained glass, photography, and more!  With so many artists in the show, our opening reception was certainly well-attended.  Thank you all for participating.

Note: The Festival Gallery has been expanded and renovated to include a workshop/classroom space. For a list of current workshops and classes, click on the “Gallery/Workshops/Happenings” button, above.

Valley Arts “shouts out” a HUGE THANK YOU to Ward Smyth and Turtle Creek Builders whose generous donations made the renovation possible. 

The Gathering show at the Festival Gallery is part of Vermont Arts 2016. For more information about art events in Vermont, please check the Vermont Arts Council Calendar.

Valley Arts needs your help!

We’re looking for a few folks who love art and are willing to share their enthusiasm to be docents at the upcoming Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition.  No experience necessary.  Docents provide general information about the show and the Mad River Valley, handle sales, count attendees, and give away our summer arts program.  Shifts are three hours each, in the barn at Lareau Farm in Waitsfield.  The show opens on July 1 and runs through July 23.  Hours: Noon-9 pm, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.  As a docent, you’ll be invited to attend a special “docent training session” preview of the show lead by curator Gary Eckhart on June 28 at 5 pm – you must be signed up with at least one shift to attend.  Interested? Please e-mail Rebecca Silbernagel, Executive Director, at Thank you!
