Annual Member Exhibit & Holiday Shoppe
An all member show celebrating the talented artists in our communities whose works are on display and for sale throughout our 1890s mansion, beautifully decorated for the holidays. Visitors can experience the beauty of the arts and the one-of-a-kind handmade treasures for gifting this holiday season until January 8th.
There are Walls of Smalls … a wonderful array of small pieces of fine art perfect for that special gift to someone or yourself! Plus, a variety of other small gift items for those on your holiday list both in our Gallery Shoppe and throughout the mansion. Also featured is artist Alexis Kyriak’s works in acrylic and canvas, graphite and paper, fiber, and clay; her subject matter: “the feminine collective energy.”
As part of our Holiday celebration, the Annual Gingerbread Contest Entries are showcased to create a wonderful village scene made up of 19 different gingerbread creations!
All visitors will receive a FREE special Ann Clark Ltd. Gingerbread House Cookie Cutter customized especially for the Chaffee. Be sure to stop by soon, as there are a limited quantity for first 200 guests.
There is no charge for admittance. A donation would be greatly appreciated. In the spirit of the season of giving, we hope you can bring in a non-perishable food item donation.
Be sure to enjoy the outdoor sculptures on the front and side lawn, as well as the exterior of the Chaffee mansion decorated in holiday splendor by the Rutland Garden Club.
This year, we are going to have the Holiday Exhibit & Shoppe on our website reflecting what is in the Chaffee. Convenient for the shopper and art enthusiast if they are unable to come in.
And remember, private shopping appointments are available by calling 802-775-0356 or [email protected]
Happy & Healthy Holiday wishes to all!
