In 2003, with an eye toward expanding its showcase of Vermont artists, the Guild doubled its retail space and added a gallery room called The Backroom Gallery for special exhibits. We invite Vermont’s most talented artists and crafts folk to exhibit their work in one-person or collaborative shows. These special shows are publicized and reported in area newspapers, websites, community calendars and via the Guild’s vast email and postal mailing lists. We host Artist receptions with a fine selection of food and drink to welcome the public to the newest exhibit. Gallery shows run for approximately 6 weeks.

Landscapes In Classical Realism
September 29 through November 17, 2018
Rodney Reis lives in Peacham, the perfect New England village, that seems to be taken out of one of his elegant paintings. Rodney has dedicated his life to landscape oil painting, seeking to perfect capture the atmosphere of the delicate balance between nature and light.
His professional training is grounded in classical realism, in the spirit of the Hudson River School, based on the specific materials of the Dutch Masters. His techniques are modeled on the methods and materials of Rembrandt and Van Dyck, and would fit in perfectly with the works of the Hudson River School of Bierstadt, Cropsey and Church.
Rodney received his training at the Art Students League in New York City, where he is a life time member. He studied landscape oil painting with master painter Frank Mason. As a fine arts instructor at St. Johsbury Academy, a private school in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, he passes on traditional skills to his students.
He has also perfected the art of crafting handcrafted gilt frames and includes them on request for specific commissions or gallery showings. This also includes restoration of frames for museums and private collections.
We are Open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 – 5:30
