In honor of the 25th Anniversary of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Vermont Committee wishes to highlight the work of Women in the Arts in the State of Vermont by holding events around the state that feature and promote the work of creative women in Vermont. The Chaffee Art Center and Vermont Actors’ Repertory Theatre have created 2012: Women in the Arts, a month long series of events featuring exhibits, performances, and a workshop by Vermont women artists.

Events will kick off with an opening reception on Friday, February 17 from 5 until 8 pm. There will be an introduction to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Vermont Commission on Women by Wendy Love and Billi Gosh. The reception will also include a performance by The Unpredictables, a female a cappella group from the Rutland High School at 6 pm.

The exhibit features the works of eleven women artists: Miriam Adams, Betty Atwood, Anna Ayres, Linda Durkee, Susan Farrow, Juliana Cassino Fechter, Kerry O. Furlani, Lois Macuga, Hilary Neroni, Athena Petra Tasiopoulos, and Karla Van Vliet. These artists come from all corners of Vermont and their work is varied in mediums.
