Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the home and studios of two wonderful Vermont artists, Judith Rey and Denis Versweyveld. Judith, a painter, and Denis, a sculptor, graciously invited me out to their lovely home in Monkton to see their work. What a treat, not to mention the fabulous lunch Judith made for all of us, straight from the couple's beautiful garden.
The two, who have worked separately for years, are now combining their interests in painting and sculpture in a collaborative show titled: "Shelter : Dwelling : House : Home," which will be on display at TruexCullins in early December. Using conceptual house forms cast in plaster and concrete, Denis' iconic sculptures complement Judith's paintings of the same simple structural forms that shape our natural and built environment. A portion of the proceeds from artwork sold will benefit COTS, the Committee on Temporary Shelter. Opening reception and holiday party Thursday December 3rd at 209 Battery Street, on Burlington's historic waterfront. Stay tuned for more information.
