'Photographs Around Southern Vermont'
One Corner Gallery
Beginning Oct. 25 there will be an exhibition of photographs at the One Corner Gallery in Arlington. Most images displayed are small and medium format landscape photographs taken in Southern Vermont by Arlington photographer, John Sutton. The 16 images on view represent the towns of Arlington, Bellows Falls, Manchester, Pawlet, Sunderland, Shaftsbury, Peru, and Poultney. The purpose is to promote Vermont in general and Southern Vermont in particular for the interest of residents and visitors.
"Swept by the rush of every day life it's easy to overlook the special qualities in our surroundings." commented Sutton when asked what inspired the collection. "I'd like to share with others my own view and appreciation for this wonderful state." he added.
The One Corner gallery is located at 39 School Street in Arlington. Gallery Hours: Thursday - Saturday 11a.m. - 4p.m., or by chance, or appointment. Oct. 26.

Bennington Museum hosts Rockwell Kent's ‘Egypt'
The Bennington Museum's featured summer exhibit, "Rockwell Kent's ‘Egypt': Shadow and Light in Vermont" -- first exhibit to focus on Kent's life and work in Vermont, 1919-1925 -- continues on view through Oct. 30.
Kent purchased a hill farm called "Egypt" on the slopes of Red Mountain in Arlington, 20 miles north of Bennington, in the spring of 1919. There, he made use of the landscape, the mountains and valleys of the Green Mountains, to create a series of powerful paintings including "Autumn" and "Nirvana." These, along with over 50 works of this artist, including many rarely seen paintings created in Vermont, prints and drawings are on view in this exhibit.
A focused examination of the artist's time in Vermont, according to a museum press release, "uncovers a complex, psychologically probing body of work that indicates an artist who found much inspiration in both the awe-inspiring physical landscape that surrounded him at "Egypt" and in his own internal musings on life, death, and man's place in the world.
The Bennington Museum is located at 75 Main St. (Route 9). It is open Thursday through Tuesday, and every day July through October, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and students over 18; younger students are free, as is a visit the museum shop.
