This month, the Village welcomes a unique exhibit by local artist John Douglas titled “Stones &.” Pad over to Falls Road for the opening reception, Friday, April 26 from 6-8 pm at Shelburne’s Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery.

Vermont artist John Douglas’ critically regarded and academically respected film work of the 1960s pursued the political conflicts of the era, reaching from Civil Rights in Mississippi to the War in North Vietnam.

Today, after his Homeland Security Collection, Douglas still seeks political and social change, though his art is primarily of virtual landscapes. Douglas contemplates the wisdom of the natural world with the following questions: What do stones think? What do trees see? What does water truly reflect? At best, Douglas states, we grasp glimpses of their world as we pass.

The exhibition “Stones &” will be on view April 19 through May 21. Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery is located at 86 Falls Road in Shelburne. Hours are Tues.-Fri. 9:30 am-5:30 pm, and Sat. 10 am-5 pm. For more information, visit www.fsgallery.com.
