Gallery North Star hosts exhibition by Paul Stone

GRAFTON—Gallery North Star, 151 Townshend Rd., presents a solo show of new oil paintings by nationally acclaimed artist Paul Stone.

The exhibition will run from July 13 through Aug. 11. The public is invited to an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, July 13, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

A lifelong dedication to documenting the artist’s fascination with the rural landscape and its structures is demonstrated in these new works.

Employing a bold palette, Stone renders the ordinary in a way that bridges the realistic and the abstract, forcing viewers to alter their perceptions and re-examine their surroundings.

Stone’s shows are greatly anticipated events, drawing collectors worldwide. His vibrant and light-filled canvases reflect his Vermont heritage and love for the land he calls home.

Gallery North Star, located in historic Grafton, is dedicated to presenting a diverse selection of work by Vermont’s and New England’s finest artists in a unique setting. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 802-843- 2465 or visit www.gnsgrafton.com.
