Vermont is seen by many people in many different ways. It’s probably best known for its bucolic scenery.A recent exhibit at Richmond’s Free Library displayed various ways 10 artists shaped – or tried to shape – the Vermont landscape, said the Burlington Free Press. The paintings and photographs were designed not only to feature landscapes and people, but to get viewers to react to those representations. A sampling of work included commuters’ landscapes, colorful birds guarding the state, bridge construction, and charted paths to sustainability. The artwork was commissioned by Weston-based philanthropist and entrepreneur Lyman Orton of the Vermont Country Store family, and his partner Janice Izzi. The artwork will be auctioned off next July after its final stop in Burlington and used to subsidize future commissions. Over 300 artists submitted their work for The Art of Action exhibit.
