VT Law School’s Summer Session Exhibit to Highlight Local Artist

May 4, 2011

SOUTH ROYALTON, VT -- Vermont Law School's Environmental Law Center (ELC) will present the works of Vermont artist Phyllis Chase on campus from May 18 through August 5.

The exhibit, which will be in the portico between Cornell Library and Debevoise Hall, celebrates the ELC's tradition of featuring Vermont landscapes by local artists on the VLS summer session catalog cover and poster. The exhibit will be the first of what may become an annual exhibit by the summer session catalog artists.

The ELC has selected Chase's artwork for the summer session catalog cover for the past two years. Chase, a plein air oil painter who also paints still lifes and interiors, is known for her colorful and evocative landscapes and silkscreens. Her work has been exhibited nationwide. "As a plein air painter, it is my complete joy to stand for hours at a time on location, trying to crack the code of how light attaches itself to this beautiful land. I also feel it is something like a mission to record the barns, villages, lakes and mountains of Vermont as we still experience them even into the 21st century."

Chase's exhibit at VLS will include interiors and landscapes. Original oil paintings and limited edition giclee prints will be for sale; 20 percent of all sales will be donated to the ELC. A reception will be from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., June 9 in Yates Common Room.
