CHANGES: Bradley Fox Memorial Service in Johnson

Vermont artist Bradley Fox died last weekend, and there will be a memorial service for him at the Vermont Studio Center's Gallery 2 on Pearl Street in Johnson this Friday, October 26. There will be a potluck at 5:30, and a chance to share stories, photos, and reminiscences at 7PM. His work will also be on display.

Bradley’s work will be remembered for his paint handling and use of color. His works were deceptively simple, not about being flashy, just painted with joy and a sense of place. Centered in the Johnson area, he was actively involved with his community. Bradley was a driving force behind the East Johnson Plein Air Club (that we thank for the above image), and formerly ran the Painted Caravan Gallery. He earned his MFA from Johnson State College/Vermont Studio Center, Johnson VT in 2006, received a BFA from the Art Institute of Boston in 1990, and Diploma Academia Internazionale Estiva de Belle Arti, Duino Italy in 1991. He was a well-respected artist, and will be missed by many.
