The Vermont Arts Exchange is happy to announce the opening reception for the Village Portrait Project (VPP), Thursday, June 7th at 6:30 pm at Powers Market, North Bennington, Vermont. VAE concludes its second installment of this Village project in conjunction with its partnership at the Village School of North Bennington (VSNB) and its 5th grade class.
This year’s VPP, led by 5th grade teaching artist Gabrielle Rynes, allowed students to choose their subjects and create a 3-D assemblage (portrait) with accompanying text.
Also on view at the exhibition will be early inspirations by other artists and a sneak preview of film clips about the VPP by videographer Michael Beach.
