What Did the Rock Say?

What Did the Rock Say?

What Did the Rock Say? Part 1 is an exhibition of a two-year collaboration of artists Dianne Shullenberger and John Snell, currently being shown at the Emile A. Gruppe Gallery in Jericho.
Shullenberger works in colored pencil and fabric. Snell is a photographer.

Originally the mission of their project was to expose young artists to hiking to several rock outcrops and help inspire them to interpret the environment in their respective mediums: photography, writing and drawing. Thirteen middle school students participated in an organized hike to Libby’s Look in West Bolton. These students returned to their own communities to explore other rock sites. The hike was documented by Snell and will be on display as part of the exhibition.

Dianne and John, both avid hikers, continue to explore rock sites in Vermont. They have a similar way of interpreting what they see, concentrating on the intricate details of nature. This exhibition is an expression of their passion for rocks and being outside in Vermont.

There will be an artist reception on Sunday, March 4 from 2 pm – 4 pm. The show is on exhibit February 22 through March 18. At the reception writer, Zoe Fowler and poet, Mary Jane Dickerson will be reading from their works related to rocks. Cello music will be played by Maya Parry, a hike participant.

Time: 2/22/18 10:00am - 3/18/18 4:00pm
Location: Emile A. Gruppe Gallery, Jericho
