Two exhibits bloom at River Garden in May
During May, the Gallery at the Garden will host two new shows:
In the front gallery: Food from the Garden and Beyond — sketches, paintings and prints of Vermont vegetables and wild mushrooms, created by Susanna Grannis, Trudi Crites, and Clare Adams
In the rear gallery: Creative Visions: poetry, art and beautiful handmade books by young people from The Poetry Studio in Marlboro, Vermont
Founded by poet-teacher Ann Gengarelly in 1995, The Poetry Studio offers classes to students ranging in age from six to seventeen. In a nurturing environment students are invited to slow down and pay attention, whether it is writing a poem or creating a piece of art. This exhibit honors the extraordinary voices and visual expression that have unfolded at the Studio over the past two years.
The Gallery at the Garden is at the Stroll’s headquarters, Robert H. Gibson River Garden, at 157 Main Street, Brattleboro. During Gallery Walk, on Friday, May 1 (5:30-8-30 p.m.), The River Garden will host Diversity Day (presented by the Windham Southeast Supervisory Union), but the art may be viewed by visitors. Normal hours for the Gallery are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Starting May 9, the Gallery will be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
