BigTown Gallery prepares to leave Vergennes
BigTown Gallery will end its one-year pop-up residency in Vergennes at the end of March. Opening on March 3, the gallery will bring a final exhibition of work by Rick Skogsberg a visionary mixed-media exhibit artist from Vermont. An opening reception for “Can’t Lose Shoes” will be held on Saturday, March 3, 3-6 p.m. Then on Thursday, March 15, at 6 p.m., the gallery will host Gregg Blasdel (their art expert in the field of visionary artists) to give a talk on the final exhibit. The gallery will close its doors with a party on Friday, March 30, 3-6 p.m.
“It was super fun for BigTown Gallery to be in the little city,” said Anni Mackay, owner and director of BigTown Gallery. “BigTown’s aim is always to help celebrate and add to the buzz of the creative vitality and progress of community life. We had a lot of fun curating six modern and contemporary exhibitions within those 12-foot walls. Our Rochester galleries only have 7.5-foot ceilings so it was a fun space to present our larger works. And we were really happy to have an opportunity to share our unique perspective to an expanded audience.
“We made new friends, attracted collectors and had a good time with a different space. We’ll pop-up again in the future,” Mackay promised.
BigTown Gallery’s primary location is on Main Street in Rochester, where it’s been for 15 years.
