Evidence of the Southern Vermont Arts Center's intention to exhibit and market the works of member artists and to present the finest quality exhibitions possible are prominently displayed in the December Exhibitions, featuring longtime SVAC Artist Member, Patti Zeigler.
A graduate of the Parson's School of Design, Patti Zeigler is an accomplished intimist painter who utilizes everyday objects to create colorful realistic still life paintings.
"I strive to paint the essential beauty inherent in every object as honestly as possible while enjoying the challenge of making a three dimensional object look realistic with a two dimensional medium," Zeigler explains. "Brushstrokes, shadow, space and design are the critical elements used to capture the form of an object and express it in terms of paint."
In addition to Zeigler, the December Exhibitions feature paintings by Brian Sweetland, Leslie Peck, Kathleen Domenicucci, Sandra Noble and Steven Forrest, mixed media from Jessie Pollock, drawings by Mark Heitzman, pastels from Phoebe Stone and the sculpture of Robert O. Murphy. All artwork is for sale.
The December Exhibitions' opening is hosted by SVAC's Hospitality Committee; the exhibition closes January 3. Admission will be free to members and children under 13, $5 for non-members, $3 for students.
