H E L L O   F R O M   E D G E W A T E R !

We hope you’ve been enjoying this beautiful, hot summer.  Our first August has been a busy one!  New hours (we’re now open on Mondays), new staff, and, as Middlebury language program participants and summer vacationers from near and far enjoy the area’s rich cultural and natural offerings, new visitors.

In addition to our current exhibit, Dwellings (through September 12), we’re pleased to feature Josh Axelrod as August’s Artist of the Month as well as an entire section of the gallery devoted to water-focused work…destined to cool you off!

‘Flight’ Josh Axelrod. 28′ x 34′ color photorgaph with hand-crafted frames.

Vermont photographer Josh Axelrod finds inspiration in the natural landscape-be it in Vermont, on the Pacific coast, in Alaska or in the Peruvian Andes–and in the magic of a particular convergence of light, pattern, sound, color and texture.  He frames his work in reclaimed wood, carefully-chosen to suit each photograph.
