    Exhibit runs Jan. 4–March 31

    The first artist to bring in the New Year at the Vermont Supreme Court Gallery is Lark Upson from Marshfield. The show will run from January 4 until March 31.  An opening reception will take place on January 12, from 4 to 7 pm.

    In 2005 Upson began turning her attention to oil painting, especially portraits. Her human subjects, mostly regional models are staged in traditional poses. Each work displays the everyday complexity and individuality that only quality portraiture can convey.

    Upson also has a strong interest in the protection of our wildlife and environmental preservation. In this exhibit, she presents full-size renderings of Lions 4ft x 6ft and Empire Penguins 46”X 36”. She will be displaying portraits of four species on the verge of extinction. Beside each painting is information on the status of their populations, climate impact on their habitat and what can be done to help save them. Her intention is to raise awareness of the decline in population of many endangered species. Upson’s wish is for other artists to join with her in depicting the many species at risk.

    Lark also has a diverse background as a furniture maker and an interior and architectural designer.

    The Vermont Supreme Court Galley is located at:111 State Street, Montpelier, VT 05602
