On Friday, August 5, VNRC will host an opening reception for Jill Madden of Weybridge, our Artist in Residence. Madden’s exhibit, “Mapping the Wilderness”, a mixture of oil paintings on linen and gouache paintings on watercolor paper, explores the unique wilderness areas of the Green Mountains. Madden’s exhibit will coincide with the Montpelier Art Walk! Doors will be open to the public from 4:00 to 8:00 pm, and Jill will be onsite to talk about her methods and inspiration. Additional visiting hours during the work week are posted here.
From July through September, VNRC is proud to present Jill Madden’s work. This swath of mountains, rivers and forest along the spine of the Green Mountains has become Madden’s primary studio space, with shifting seasons, light sources, temperatures, and textures highlighting the contrasts that often exist between experience and memory. You can see more of her work at www.jillmadden.com.
VNRC continues to seek out local artists whose work connects with or complements our mission to protect and enhance our natural environments and wildlife, vibrant communities, productive working landscapes, rural character and unique sense of place.
