SHORT: Bigtown Gallery, in Rochester,VT

Rochester, Vermont isn’t a big city, but it’s got a big town gallery - literally. Big Town Gallery on route 100 in the heart of Rochester presents top flight exhibitions, and outdoor performances in “BigTown’s out-back amphitheater space,” during the warm summer months. Gallerist Anni Mackay has been curating Bigtown shows for ten years, and represents some of New England’s best known artists - Gerald Auten, Varujan Boghosian, David Bumbeck, Nancy Taplin, and the late Hugh Townley; to name a few. The Bigtown “Members Show,” with works by those five artists and a dozen more is on display April 5th – May 25th. Opening reception Saturday, April 11, 5pm. The spring weather is always dicey, especially in central Vermont, but if it's a beautiful weekend take a drive to Rochester. If it’s gloomy take a drive to Rochester to seem some beautiful art anyways.
