Jan. 30 - March 19, 2016
Reception Jan. 30, 5-7 pm
Chandler Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of Salvage. This thought-provoking group show features more than 20 Vermont artists working with found materials. From assemblage and collage to large-scale sculpture, artists mix mediums and blur the lines between art and daily life. By definition, Salvage is a rescuing, a saving of things, and the work included achieves much more; it transforms, re-imagines and reassembles. From the past to the page, pedestals and the gallery, viewers will be taken beyond the banality of the decay to a place where remarkable beauty lays within discarded gems rescued from waste. The opening reception for Salvage is January 30th from 5-7pm. The show is curated by Josh Turk and runs through March 19th.
The Chandler Gallery is a year-round, non-profit art gallery operated primarily by volunteers. It is overseen by Chandler Center for the Arts and an active Gallery committee. The Gallery is located in the same building as historic Chandler Music Hall. The Gallery holds approximately eight exhibits per year, covering a wide range of artists, artisans and craftspeople in a broad range of media. From a single renowned artist to an acclaimed traveling show, the Chandler Gallery's varied and impressive exhibits are influenced by the enthusiasm, style and innovation of the creators.
