"Through Our Lens" is a collection of work created during The Big Picture Project, a partnership between River Arts and the Lamoille Family Center's Families Learning Together program. The six week project began with a trip to Montreal where participants explored street photography using digital cameras to document their experiences. The mission of the project was to help increase awareness and self-esteem through the creative process. The group, led by professional artist and photographer, Kelly Holt, explored architecture, art, culture, and portraiture using experiential photography. A book will be published in 2015 with a larger collection of images from the project. Proceeds from photography and book sales will benefit the Families Learning Together program.

River Arts, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the community through the arts, is located in Morrisville, VT. The Copley Common Space Gallery is located on the main floor of the River Arts Center. Gallery Hours: Monday-Thursday 9:00-4:00p.m., Fridays 9:00-2:00p.m, closed Saturday and Sunday.

The ​Gallery at River Arts Presents: Maria Anghelache - "Tropical Abstract/Abstractions"​
January 8 - March 2, 2015
Reception - Thursday, January 8, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
River Arts Center, 74 Pleasant Street, Morrisville, VT

​​The Gallery at River Arts presents Tropical Abstract/Abstractions, an exhibition of ​abstract paintings by Maria Anghelache,​ January 8 - March 2, 2015 at the River Arts Center in Morrisville. There will be a reception Thursday, January 8, 5:00-7:00p.m.

Tropical Abstract/Abstractions, a collection of abstract paintings by Maria Anghelache, ​arose in response to the long ​winters in ​Vermont. Enveloping the viewer in an explosion of vibrant color, Anghelache uses acrylic and pigment markers to create "conversations" in which "natural elements emerge like multiple ideas going in multiple directions". Influenced by artist Georges Braque, Anghelache builds up and breaks down natural elements, using brilliant colors to convey an emotional response. Flowers, butterflies and seagrass are pulled into her creative "conversations", and ​flow ​onto the canvas in a riot of blues, reds, yellows and greens.

The Gallery at River Arts is located upstairs in the Robert C. Folley Hall at the River Arts Center, 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Gallery hours: Monday - Thursday 9:00a.m. - 4:00p.m, Fridays - 9:00a.m. - 2:00p.m. For off hours, please call River Arts: 802-888-1261. Admission is free.
