PRESS RELEASE: Paintings of the Scott Farm at Gallery North Star in Grafton

Gallery North Star, 151 Townshend Road, presents the group show
Through Different Eyes-
Paintings of the Scott Farm

The exhibition will run from December 18 through January 17. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, December 18th from 4:00 to 6:30 pm.

“Through Different Eyes” explores the various approaches artists can take in their interpretations of a particular subject. Fifteen artists were given the assignment to use the Scott Farm in Dummerston, Vermont as inspiration for their work. It was up to each to find their muse amongst the 626 acres of hillside teeming with ecologically grown apples and the 23 restored structures that make up this land trust property.

With styles as diverse as the contemporary work of Paul Stone, the classic paintings of Thomas Torak, the whimsical visions of Woody Jackson, the sublime pastels of Robert Carsten and the multi- media collages of Mariella Bisson, a wide range of styles are represented. Using a multitude of media, they have created unique visions of a place steeped in beauty and historical significance.

Gallery North Star, located in historic Grafton, Vermont, is dedicated to presenting a diverse selection of work by Vermont's and New England's finest artists in a unique setting. The gallery is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. For more information call (802) 843- 2465 or visit the gallery's website at
