The Art of Halves and Half Knots

Rutland, VT: The Chaffee Art Center, Your Center for Creativity, invites the community to
the opening reception of The Art of Halves Half Knots, A Textile Arts Exhibit on Friday, September 16th
from 5pm to 7pm. There is no charge for admittance. A donation would be appreciated.

Featured will be Textile arts (quilting, felting, sewing, crocheting, knitting, embroidery, mixed media…). Chaffee artist members will have work on display and for sale such as fine art, photography, sculptures, and more throughout the mansion as well as in the Gallery Shoppe that is filled with handmade treasures and gift ideas for any occasion.

Stop by and enjoy music by pianist Marna Grove, a glass of wine or Haitian Blue Peak Macaya Coffee, and explore the arts! This exhibit will be on display from September 16th to October 22nd.

Be sure to stroll through our more than a dozen gardens that includes a 100 foot Pollinator Garden of native plant and flowers, and a Sculpture Garden.

As we celebrate 61 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 open hours to experience the beauty of the 1890’s historic building and the wonderful works of art throughout, plus our Gallery Shoppe!  While here, picture your next event, bridal shower, wedding, meeting or retreat being held in our beautiful 1890’s mansion, fondly known by its first owners as Sunny Gables.
