The Vermont Institute of Contemporary Arts is celebrating with a Grand Opening on May 5, 2012. Inn Victoria, a Romantic Vermont Bed and Breakfast, salutes VTICA and Jeanne Carbonetti in their partnership in the Grand Opening; "The Power of Beauty: Introducing the Paradise Suite"...the Watercolors of Jeanne Carbonetti. Jeanne has her gallery at Crow Hill here in Chester, Vermont.
According to Abby Reader, Executive Director; "The VTICA anchor facility is located at 15 Depot Street, Chester, VT. It comprises a Central Revolving Exhibit Gallery of approximately 2000 square feet, plus a Permanent Collection Hearth Barn of approximately 650 square feet, and offices and Artist Workshop Teaching Studios of approximately 1200 square feet.
The Town of Chester lies at the center of a large and diffuse community of outstanding artists, some indigenous and some imported from art communities elsewhere. Rich and insightful creativity percolates up through the Green Mountain soil not only in traditional forms of foliage, village churches and covered bridges, but also in the indescribable, mind-blowing, out-of-body interpretive creations, by young and old artists alike, practicing age-old – and cutting edge – techniques that challenge us to awaken and to respond to a deeper calling. Art is calling each of us deeper."
The Vision: For a world enriched by the creation and enjoyment of contemporary art.
The Mission: Is to cultivate and nurture an appreciation for contemporary art through
education, innovation, conversation, and presentation.
Grand Opening on Saturday, May 5th, 2012 from 5:30PM to 8PM. The Watercolors of Jeanne Carbonetti will be on display from May 5 through June 17, 2012.
