New artist’s exhibit at Vineyard’s gallery

Artist’s reception Sunday, June 3 from 2 to 5 pm
Shelburne Vineyard’s Tasting Room Gallery is home to a new exhibit, “Into the Hills, High Flying,” with work by featured artist Anne Cady. Her works are playful and bold, full of vibrant color and spirit and are held in collections throughout the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Europe.
Cady grew up in Connecticut but has spent most of her adult life living in Vermont. She received her bachelor’s degree from Middlebury College in 1973, going on to establish and direct “The Children’s Art School” for more than 30 years. In 1990 she was honored for her teaching career by Middlebury College with a gallery exhibition entitled, “A Child’s Vision.” This exhibit reflected the focus of her personal vision and her artistic journey propelling her into her career as a full time painter. The influence of the approach of those young artists comes through in her paintings to this day. “Their gift to me was to show me over and over again the simple, colorful and expressive way in which they interpreted the world around them.”
Cady resides in New Haven, where her Red Barn Studio is located. The Vermont countryside, with the Green Mountains to the east and the Adirondack Mountains to the west and the farm fields and foothills between, provide an endless source of inspiration for her distinctive style.
“Into the Hills, High Flying,” will run from June 1 through the end of August, and an Artist’s Reception will be held at Shelburne Vineyard on Sunday, June 3, from 2 to 5 pm. Admission is free and light refreshments will be provided; wine will be for sale by the glass for those who have a valid over 21 ID.
