BRATTLEBORO- The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center unveils a new exhibit of artwork by Roger Sandes during Gallery Walk on Friday evening, September 1, from 5:30 to 8:30. The opening is free and all are welcome to attend.

Occupying the museum’s large Center Gallery, “Constellations: Roger Sandes” features 21 paintings created by the artist over the past 27 years. According to BMAC’s chief curator Mara Williams, the exhibit is organized as a series of constellations, each consisting of a recent painting displayed alongside one or more older paintings upon which the recent one is based.

Sandes and his wife, collage artist Mary Welsh, live and work in Williamsville. Sandes’ artwork has been exhibited and collected throughout the United States and abroad. Sandes co-founded southern Vermont’s Rock River Artists collective.

“Constellations: Roger Sandes” remains on view at BMAC through January 8, 2018.

The museum’s galleries and gift shop are open every day except Tuesday, 11 am to 5 pm. Regular admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $4 for students. Members and children 18 and under are admitted free of charge. Located in historic Union Station at the intersection of Main Street and routes 119 and 142, the museum is wheelchair accessible.
