The Brandon Artists Guild presents a feast for the eyes with a fresh exhibit of pastel works by Middlebury artists Judy Albright and Cristine Kossow.  The show, “Art from Farm to Table” runs March 2 through April 30.  The public is invited to the opening reception Friday, March 2 from 5-7 PM.

Vintage tools, stacks of produce, farm animals – these are the Vermont staples that Middlebury artists Cris Kossow and Judy Albright draw inspiration from.  “I’m generally a still-life painter, says Kossow, “but when I came to Vermont I got so excited about cows, chickens, pigs.  I love to paint cows.”  Relocating from the Hudson Valley, she finds no shortage of subjects in the Green Mountain State.  A Parsons-trained graphic designer, Kossow rekindled her love of painting when she received a box of pastels as a birthday gift.

“I remembered my cousin, Judy, is a pastel artist,” Kossow explains, “so we reconnected. Now we live across the street from each other and are having a joint show.”

Judy Albright, who earned a master’s in art and education at SUNY New Paltz, moved to Vermont from Connecticut about a year ago. In Middlebury she paints and teaches pastels. “The Vermont arts community and the public have been very welcoming to Cris and me,” says Albright. “We never expected to have this kind of exposure.  Then again, we’re not shy.”
