Robert Brunelle, Bolt From the Blue                   


Opening Reception Thursday, September 14, 5-7pm


The Gallery at River Arts is celebrating its third annual group exhibition of River Works (on view August 24 – October 20, 2017). There will be an opening reception on Thursday, September 14, from 5-7pm.

The River Arts Center’s name and location hold an emotional connection to Vermont rivers. Stewardship of environment in our community is vital. We see the bend in the Lamoille River at the Oxbow from the Center. Rivers are an important part of Lamoille County’s economic engine, with three locations for hydropower within three miles. Water is always moving. Change is constant. The exhibit illustrates everything from water’s visual effect, power to inspire, and natural force and influence in our world.

River Works 3 includes a range of engaging paintings by Robert Brunelle, Rett Sturman, Jen Hubbard, John Sargent, and Homer Wells. Photographic work by Phil Herbison and cyanotypes by Renee Greenlee show many perspectives on the river theme. Poetry and photography unite in Kent Shaw and Jean O’Conor’s collaborative piece “Rain,” concluding the list of exhibitors.
