Northern Daughters opens a second gallery in Shelburne
Most of us now know that Northern Daughters (NoDa) gallery is the newish gallery on Main Street in Vergennes. Well, now they’re opening a new gallery space called The Annex, hosted by Village Wine and Coffee in Shelburne.
Owner and longtime Shelburnite Kevin Clayton has created a newly renovated space for patrons to enjoy wine, coffee, artwork and the tradition of community in this beautiful historic building. Clayton has expanded his wine shop into the north side of the building (what was formerly Patina Antiques & Home Furnishings), where patrons can now find his stunning selection of wines from all over the world. To the rear of the wine shop, visitors enter an art and events space, curated by Northern Daughters Fine Art Gallery.
This fall there will be a series of wine education events taking place in the gallery. “NoDa is more than excited to be working with Kevin, his effusive energy creates such a positive community for downtown Shelburne,” said Justine Jackson, co-owner of the gallery.
There will be a Grand Opening Reception of NoDa’s Annex space on Friday, Sept. 7, from 5-8 p.m.
Co-owners Jackson and Sophie Pickens grew up together in Addison County. Though the two lived in Brooklyn, N.Y., at the time of NoDa’s inception, the plan was always to move home, and create an art space rooted in their own community. And they did just that in 2016.
The two strive to create a gallery that merges the aesthetic of blue chip galleries with the familiarity and authenticity of a Vermont general store. NoDa currently represents the work of 15 artists from Vermont and abroad. The Annex will feature rotating work curated by the gallery owners.
“We’re thrilled to have expanded into this beautifully designed space in Shelburne and be able to share the artwork we love with a wider audience,” Pickens said.
The current show features a selection of new work from Anne Cady, Julia Jensen and Rose Umerlik, three prominent Vermont artists. This exhibit is on view now through Sept. 13.
