Shelburne Vineyard will feature two Vermont artists, Judith Tuttle and Robert Huntoon, in its spring exhibit titled “Waterscapes.” The exhibit will run from March 1-May 31 with an Artist Reception on Sunday, March 3 from 2-4 pm at the Tasting Room Gallery at 6308 Shelburne Road in Shelburne. The artists will be present to discuss their work and light refreshments will be available at the Reception. Wine will be for sale by the glass.
Tuttle, a Charlotte resident, painted in watercolor for decades before turning to the soft pastels that she works in today. She ultimately chose this medium as best able to express her passion for waterscapes in all moods and weather, and in locations as near as Lake Champlain and as distant as Italy.
Huntoon, a native Vermonter, turned to painting landscape early in his career. His work is heavily influenced by Flemish painters and he translates that tradition to rural New England land and waterscapes. He captures those pastoral scenes with a play of light and his distinctive technique that creates “images of timelessness and transcendence.” The Vineyard is pleased to bring a wider exhibit of his work to the Tasting Room Gallery.
