Canal Street Art Gallery’s A WORLD SUSPENDED IN COLOR Show Opens
The public is invited to attend the artists’ reception of “A World Suspended in Color” Fine Art Glass from 5-8pm on Friday, September 21st. Take part in celebrating with the artists, and in sharing their process and experience with glass as a medium of expression.
The exhibition is on view to the public from September 5th through November 3rd. The Gallery is located at 23 Canal Street in the Historic Downtown Village of Bellows Falls, Vermont and is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00am to 4:00pm, and all other days by appointment.
The intention of “A World Suspended in Color" is to showcase a diverse and dynamic range of glass art from the many nationally renowned, awarded and multi-talented glass artists of our region including members of The Vermont Glass Guild. Canal Street Art Gallery is honored to share with the public work by Clare Adams, Lucy Bergamini, Dominique Caissie, Robert DuGrenier, Alissa Faber, Nicholas Kekic, David Leppla, Melanie Leppla and Chris Sherwin.
The artworks in “A World Suspended in Color” use the glass-working techniques of blowing, etching, fusing, torching, hand-working, and cutting; along with goldsmithery, painting, and the use of materials such as wood, concrete, copper wiring, and silver and gold leaf. Through this collection of work by local artists from Vermont and New Hampshire the Gallery, in collaboration with the Vermont Glass Guild, offers an opportunity for a deeper understanding and appreciation of the glass art form.
Canal Street Art Gallery was founded in 2017 by three artists, who saw a need for a centralized and active location for creating and sharing art in the Town of Rockingham, Vermont. The Gallery represents and exhibits contemporary artists in all styles and mediums, and offers an open space where all creative voices may be heard in an effort to promote southern Vermont artists.
