Julie Y Baker Albright’s pristine oils on panel are reminiscent of the golden age of 17th century Flemish still life, but render the simple objects found in the casual settings of a 20th century Vermont country home. Several artists explore local and distant landscapes but transform their observations with creative deduction that brings the work much closer to abstraction. Others start with the purely abstract and focus on textures and the interplay of color and composition. This exhibit celebrates all these approaches. Some new artists to the gallery are Kimo Minton of Albuquerque and London, Alexis Serio from Texas, Sam Colt, Stephen Lloyd, Diane Fitch of Vermont, and fused glass artist Garrett Sadler recently moved to Charlotte, VT from Lenox MA.
