New exhibits celebrate winter and Black history
The Chaffee Art Center on South Main Street in Rutland will open a new exhibit “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with solo featured galleries of work by photographer Lowell Snowden Klock and fine artist Heather Wilson. An opening reception will be held on Friday, Jan. 14, from 5-7 p.m. Masks are required.
There will also be an installation to celebrate Black History Month with artist works and historical content. February is National Black History Month, which started as a method of remembrance of vital events and people in the history of the African diaspora. Today, it is an important month of both remembrance, recognition, and education. It is a time for people of any color to look at the incredible figures in Black History, and to raise awareness about the issues that are still present in society in terms of racism. Importantly, it is a great opportunity for people from all walks of life to broaden their horizons and expand their understanding. This exhibit will be up until Feb. 25.
The art center is open Wednesday through Friday, 12-4 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Private appointments available by request. Visit chaffeeartcenter.org for more info.
