PRESS RELEASE: Landscape Artists at Chandler Gallery in Randolph

Glowing skies, streaks of orange fields, soaring mountaintops, silver waters, magenta forests, these are just a few of the images that will be on view this summer at Chandler Gallery in Randolph, Vermont. Twelve state- and nationally-renowned artists bring their landscapes to the gallery for the landscape exhibition Red Fields & Yellow Skies, The Art of the Landscape. A gala opening Saturday June 16 opens with an artists’ roundtable discussion at 4 pm, followed by a reception from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. The exhibit runs through Labor Day Sunday September 2.

 This landscape exhibition is a feast for the eyes and the soul. Jan Fowler, Chandler Gallery Committee member and the exhibit’s curator, had two goals in assembling this group of artwork. An admirer of these artists for many years, she was excited to bring their work together in one exhibit and to introduce Central Vermont to well-known, gallery-represented artists whose work may not be readily available in the region.

The artists include Bonnie Acker, David Smith, Mariella Bisson, Cameron Schmitz, Gabriel Boray, Aline Ordman, Matt Brown, Craig Mooney, Steve Goodman, Petria Mitchell, Kathleen Kolb, and Dorothy Martinez.
