'SPRING WATERS,' A painting by Scott Addis

The Edgewater galleries in Middlebury launch into August with a new exhibition opening at the Mill Street gallery that’s a continuation of the theme at the Merchants Row gallery: “Studies to Studio.” At Mill Street, Edgewater is featuring two plein air painters: Joe Bolger from Shoreham, and Scott Addis from Montreal. The Merchants Row gallery is showing new works by Timothy Horn, William Hoyt and Rory Jackson.
