This exhibit will feature works from the Maple Leaf Quilters Guild in three of our first-floor galleries.  The upstairs galleries will showcase juried member artists.  

As we celebrate 59 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.
