PRESS RELEASE: NVAA annual juried exhibition, Jeffersonville

The Northern Vermont Artists’ Association will hold their “Big Event” of the year during the month of June in Jeffersonville. Visions of Vermont will host the June Juried Show in the Sugar House Gallery on the beautiful 94 Main Street grounds belonging to Jane and Terry Shaw. If the weather is nice, the Opening Reception will be held on the lawn from 3-5 Sunday June 5. There are several buildings full of art plus the recently renovated “New House”, into which the party will move in case of rain. During the awards ceremony, Past President Robert Brunelle will “pass the torch” to new President Joan T. Smith.
This show, in its 81st year, is judged and juried to keep it special. This year’s judges/jurors are well-known teacher and artist Sean Dye, internationally recognized painter Peter Miller, and Dan Patullo of The Village Frame Shoppe & Gallery in St. Albans. There are usually about ninety or so entries for the annual June Juried Show. More than 150 people came from all over last year, but following the fun and the fabulous “garden party” atmosphere at the reception last time, it may turn out to be even bigger this year. The art-loving public is invited! If you can’t get to the reception on Sunday, remember that the exhibition and sale will be open daily from 11-5 Monday June 6 through Sunday June 26. NVAA members will be on hand to greet visitors and give information during the show hours.
