There're a couple hundred people in the gallery from which I'm stealing a moment to say, "What an opening!" The enthusiasm is infectious; many are discovering artists new to them, and historical facts about Vermont and the country, through the lore of the railroads. What a key culture in our history - no wonder the image of the train has captured the imaginations of all ages for generations.
The gallery is open Friday - Sunday, 11 - 4 and by appointment at any time. 802-644-5100

The doors opened this morning on All Aboard, Bryan Memorial Gallery's winter exhibition. In our glee, curator Fiona Cooper Fenwick, data manager Marcie Vallette and Executive Director Mickey Myers stood at the gallery's front door, mimicking train sounds. Then it was back to work to continue fine tuning over 500 historical objects, paintings, trains, toys, posters and videos that offer delight and information about railroad culture. Join us this weekend, Sunday, February 5 at 1 for the Artists Roundtable, and 2 - 4 for a reception in honor of the artists and lenders. We'll have you home in time for the Super Bowl.

"Do you hear that whistle down the line?" TRAINS are coming to Bryan Memorial Gallery - model trains, toy trains, paintings of trains, historical train artifacts, hooked rug trains, videos, you name it - an abundance of train imagery, celebrating railroad culture.
Plan to join us for ALL ABOARD, February 3 - April 1 at Bryan Memorial Gallery, Jeffersonville VT, and stay tuned for more information about this exhibit.

No sooner did we open our exhibition NEW ENGLAND PLEIN AIR PAINTERS PAINT VERMONT, than two of our NEPAP guests, Barbara Lussier (CT)and Mike Graves (MA), were back at their easels. This was the scene along Route 15 in Jeffersonville yesterday around 5:30.

The gallery's 14th Annual Small Picture Exhibition is 9 months away, but it's not too soon to start thinking in "pairs." Go to www.bryangallery.org/documents/2010specificationsspe.doc for more information about the recommendation that work submitted in pairs (same dimensions, same frame, related imagery) has the best chance for both pieces being installed in this very popular exhibition.

Remember the fun we had last summer at the first Jeffersonville Festival of the Arts?
It was such a successful day, celebrating in part the 25th anniversary of Bryan Memorial Gallery, that Cambridge Arts Council is making it an annual event. This year,, the festival takes place on Saturday, August 14. Go to www.artsfestvt.com for information about how you can participate, but here's a hint: the application deadline is March 15, 2010, so even though August 14 seems light years away, the deadline for declaring your participation will be upon us momentarily.
