The Christine Price Gallery, located in the lobby of the Castleton Fine Arts Center, and the Castleton University Bank Gallery, located in the heart of Rutland's historic downtown, showcase local and regional artists throughout the year.
Persi Narvaez surprises us with his new series Castleton University architecture and street scenes from around the world. In it, he fuses the modern and ancient in depictions of streets and building from today and earlier times to make the normal extraordinary. Although Narvaez is an artist in continuous investigation of his pictorial work, architecture has been a constant from the beginning. Narvaez uses architecture to show us his story and his spiritual path, making protagonists of the old houses, churches, and balconies of urban and rural structures.
Persi Narvaez manages to translate the daily, mundane and traditional into a kind of mystical splendor, giving both the buildings and the life of the street an atmosphere of great sensitivity and serenity. In this architectural transformation, you breathe in the atmosphere of the place.
"Four Sight" is new exhibition showcasing the talent of the Rutland area with these emerging artists. Each brings their own unique perspective on how they perceive the world around them from political art history allusions, abstract portraits, or surreal spiritualism. Come to the CU Bank gallery and enter a world of color and ideas.
This collaborative exhibition features a variety of works, full of sharp contrasts and light commentary. Virtually every size, media, and approach to subjects and materials can be seen, from digital projects, writings, and zines, to sound art, mailed art, poetry, and performance art.
