The Chaffee Art Center is announcing its new exhibit AND new downtown location!  Join us for our grand opening reception January 11, 2013 from 5-7pm at our new downtown Chaffee located at 75 Merchants Row in Rutland, VT.

Our new show entitled Backstage at the Rainbow Cattle Co. features gorgeous black & white photographs taken of drag queens during their preperation for performances. For two years photographer Evie Lovett captured an intimate view of this transformation, spending countless hours backstage at this rural gay bar in Dummerston, VT, just north of Brattleboro. This exhibit also features audio excerpts from interviews conducted by Greg Sharrow of the Vermont Folklife Center and Evie herself. Let your hair down and come enjoy a great show of stunning photographs and outrageous creativity!

The show was organized by the Vermont Folklife Center and made possible by a grant from the Samara Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation and in collaboration with RU12? and Outright Vermont. It will travel to all fourteen counties of Vermont - do not miss this exciting show at Chaffee Downtown!

The show will be on exhibit January 11 - February 9, 2013.
