PRESS RELEASE: Wood, Wire & Whimsy at Gander Gallery in Manchester Center

Wood, Wire & Whimsy, a group show featuring artists Dale Sherman Blodget, Anna Dibble, Fred Faviano and Janet Van Fleet opens Friday July 6, 2012 at Gander Gallery art & objects. An opening reception with the artists will be held at the gallery from 5 pm - 7pm.  Wood, Wire & Whimsy, designed to interest you in their artistic use of materials, both natural and man-made, runs through July 20, 2012.

Fred Faviano, a summer resident of Manchester Center, VT, has been constructing brightly painted sculpture from the flotsam and jetsam of life for over forty years. Cabot, VT artist Janet Van Fleet repurposes wire, buttons and wine foils into imaginative new statements about life and beyond. Anna Dibble, from Landgrove, VT, explores the varied relationships between art, people, dogs and other beasts while providing a comical commentary on the foibles of daily life.  Danby artist Dale Sherman Blodget works to capture fleeting moments that are open to interpretation using a variety of media, including her iPad.
