Exhibit Opening Friday

Exhibit Opening Friday

Rutland, VT:  The Chaffee Art Center, Your Center for Creativity, invites the community to the opening reception of our new Exhibit “Art in the Garden, Color Me Happy” on Friday, August 25th from 5pm to 7pm. 

Stop by and enjoy a glass of Sangria while you explore the garden themed galleries featuring work by Chaffee artist members.  Long-time Chaffee Artist Member, Arlene O’Connor, will have a feature wall of garden and floral paintings.  There is no charge to attend. A donation would be appreciated.

Be sure to browse the rest of the mansion and take in the 1890’s architecture.  Chaffee artist members’ works will be on display and for sale throughout the first and second floors, as well as in the Gallery Shoppe that is filled with handmade treasures and gift ideas for any occasion.  This exhibit will be on display until September 22.

As we celebrate 62 years as an art center in the Rutland Community, we also invite you to join as an artist, single or family member to help the Chaffee to continue to inspire and cultivate creativity, while positively impacting the vitality of our community through the arts.

Plan to visit the Chaffee during expanded Summer Open Hours to experience the beauty of the 1890’s Queen Anne Victorian Mansion and the wonderful works of art throughout, plus our Gallery Shoppe!  While here, picture your next event, bridal shower, wedding, birthday, meeting, or retreat being held in our beautiful mansion, fondly known by its first owners as Sunny Gables.

Summer Hours:  Wednesday and Thursday Noon to 7pm; Friday Noon to 5pm; and Saturday 10am to 2pm. Private appointments available by request.
