An exhibit of watercolors and pen and wash drawings by Brookfield artist Gene Parent is currently on display in the Gifford Gallery through November 16.
A member of The Barre Paletteers, the Vermont Pastel Society, and the Vermont Watercolor Society, Parent often depicts natural landscapes and old Vermont structures like barns and covered bridges. Familiar scenes from around Brookfield are captured in “Ice Harvest,” (Sunshine Lake) and “Floating Bridge at Sunset Lake.”
“I often work in ink and pastel but watercolors are my favorite medium,” he writes in his artist statement.
Parent has had solo and group shows throughout northern Vermont, including previous exhibits at Gifford, shows at Copley Woodlands in Stowe, the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier, and the Chandler Gallery in Randolph, as well as the Mary Bryan Art gallery in Jeffersonville, Old Mill Gallery in Essex Center, V Gallery in Woodstock, and galleries in Burlington, Montpelier, and Barre.
This exhibit is free and open to the public, and will be displayed through November 16, 2016. The gallery is located just inside the hospital’s main entrance at 44 S, Main St. (Route 12) in Randolph. Call Gifford at (802) 728-7000 for more information.
