RANDOLPH, Vt.—Paintings by Barnard artist Emily Burkholder are on display through Aug. 7 in the Gifford Gallery at Gifford Medical Center. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Burkholder, who paints in oil and watercolor, works seasonally to capture the hills and color of the Vermont countryside. Her subject matter ranges from landscapes to barns and animals.
Her most recent works have largely been influenced by her “commitment to a daily art practice and focus on working to capture the light and shadows of the landscape,” said Burkholder, a member of the Daily Artists group and the Vermont Watercolor Society.
In addition to painting, she teaches art and music privately and at ArtisTree Community Arts Center in South Pomfret.
The Gifford Gallery is located just inside the hospital’s main entrance at 44 S. Main St., Route 12, in Randolph. Artwork may be purchased by contacting the Gifford Development, Marketing and Public Relations Department, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 802-728-2380 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
