PRESS RELEASE: Closing reception for Summer Members’ Exhibition at Chaffee Art Center in Rutland

The Chaffee Art Center will be hosting a closing reception brunch for the 2011 Summer Members' Exhibition on Saturday, July 30 starting at 12 PM.

This reception will be the last chance to view the current show on exhibit featuring Chaffee Juried Artist Members, including Patrick Kennedy (image at left), Marian Willmott, and Joshua Kennedy. There will be a children's story reading by Lynn Sandage starting at 1 PM, followed by a flute improvisation at 1:30 PM.

The theme of all of Lynn Sandage's work since 1985 is nous sommes instruments d'amour, which she translates to "we are instruments of agape". Lynn will be telling her story to children of all ages of how she came to painting Angels Protect Motherhood, and will resonate on her gold and silver flute with the large unopened package of artwork on display entitled The Mystery of Creativity. This package she shipped from Nice to Boston over twenty-one years ago, when returning from living and working as an artist in France.
