Two great opening receptions!

Thursday, January 12  •  4:00-7:00 pm
Selected Works by Stephen M. Schaub
Opening Reception 
January 12 • 4:00-7:00 PM

Show runs through March 31
Hours: Monday–Friday, 8:00–4:30 PM
Pavilion Office Building, 109 State Street, Montpelier
photo ID required for admission
These selected works feature scenes of unresolved narrative, a story which, left unfinished, resembles an emotional memory, or the illogic of a dream. Schaub’s artworks often turn the artistic gaze inward, enlarging small moments and focusing on a personal landscape.

Lark Upson
and a Call to Action
Upson's human subjects, mostly regional models are staged in traditional poses. Each work displays the everyday complexity and individuality that only quality portraiture can convey. Upson also has a strong interest in the protection of our wildlife and environmental preservation, viewed through her paintings of endangered species. 

Vermont Supreme Court Gallery shows are presented
in partnership with Justice Marilyn Skoglund.
Opening Reception

Paintings and drawings by Katie Runde

Show runs through January 31
Hours: Monday-Friday, 8:00-4:30 
Vermont Arts Council Spotlight Gallery
136 State Street, Montpelier

The paintings are not meek. The frames are substantial, the pigment often dark and generously applied. The drawings are accurate and balanced. Many of the pieces in Etudes reference relationships: a farmer with a cow, a man and his son, musicians playing their instruments. There are still lifes: a rose, apples, a whimsical kitchen accessory. Three nudes are sketched with Conté Crayon.  This show has it all.

Shedding Light on the Working Forest

Paintings and Poetry by Kathleen Kolb & Verandah Porche

Show runs through January 27


Monday - 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Tue/Wed/Thu - 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM

Friday - 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This project celebrates the landscape of the working forest and the voices of those who have honed skills into a livelihood there. Shedding Light draws on the artistic friendship of a painter and a poet who are committed to subjects that have been largely overlooked by the arts.

Museum Closed in January
The mural Tribute to Vermont by Paul Sample has been gifted to the Vermont Historical Society by the National Life Group.

National Life has generously provided for the conservation and installation of the mural in the lobby of the Vermont History Museum. We are using this opportunity to update and upgrade our flagship exhibit, Freedom & Unity. For the work to be completed in a timely manner, we will be closing the Museum in Montpelier for the month of January.
Check the VHS website for additional holiday closures and updates on reopening.

all part of the Capitol District!
The area surrounding the Vermont State House offers wonderful opportunities to sample Vermont’s art and culture. This newly identified Capitol District will bring greater visibility to its permanent collections, free performances, rotating gallery exhibitions, and special events that take place year-round. The Vermont State Curator’s Office welcomes everyone to this compact corner of Montpelier and this new collaboration with the Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Historical Society. Come explore. The Capitol District is full of surprises around every corner.
To help visitors find their way around the District, the State Curator’s Office is also debuting new logos and signage for each of the galleries we manage—The Vermont State House, the Governor’s Gallery, and the Vermont Supreme Court Gallery. Look for them in our newsletter updates for the latest information on upcoming shows, openings, and other special events.
