SVAC Opens November Exhibitions
The Southern Vermont Arts Center’s November Exhibitions feature solo exhibitions by four artists: Claire Fauquier, Mary Iselin, Alison Nicholls and Jim Schlessinger, plus the group show, ‘Water,’ showcasing the works of some of the region’s finest artists working in oil, watercolor, photography, sculpture and pastel. There will be a free opening artist’s reception, with complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 1.
Two of the solo presenters, Claire Fauqier and Jim Schlessinger, are photographers. An avid traveler, Fauqier’s show highlights images she’s composed over the past year traveling in East Africa, India and Europe. Schlessinger’s photos are about illusion and allusion, meditation and, sometimes, the magic he’s found along the way. Mary Iselin is a professional artist who works in oil. Her paintings are luminous and filled with light. Alison Nicholls, a is a watercolorist whose focus is entirely on Africa. The Southern Vermont Arts Center is located off West Road in Manchester, Vt.
