The T.W, Wood Gallery & Arts Center is pleased to present its opening exhibition of works in all media created around the theme of The Shadow in Art. Artists from all over New England and beyond responded to the nationally publicized open call for submissions the Wood issued early in 2010 and now, the juried works of over 20 artists, from Vermont and "away" will be featured in a show, which opens August 24th and continues through October 24th. An opening reception from 5-7pm on Thursday, August 26th will honor the incredibly creative work or artists such as Phyllis Higgins, Axel Stohlberg, Lee Garrison, Amalia Elena Veralli, Melissa Storrow, Nancy Woodard, Joel Kerchner, Rebecca Kibby, Jack Sabon, Deborah Hillman, Susan Funk and others - many of whom will be in attendance.

But The Shadow Show is not the only thing opening at the gallery this month. August 24th also sees the opening of the Wood's new retail operation, The Wood Room, permanently installed in the South Gallery. This unique boutique will be an ongoing operation open during all regular Gallery hours (noon - 4:00pm Tuesdays through Sundays and at all special events). The Wood Shop will feature the works of a regularly rotating roster of some of Vermont's most exciting Artists who will offer a variety of paintings, photographs, crafts, cards, and more at accessible -to-all price points. The gallery premiers to the public featuring works by Stanford Stevens (watercolors) Axel Stohlberg's popular Marquettes, paintings and cards by Frank Woods, Alex Bottinelli, Missy Storrow, Linda Berg Maney and others.
