Artist Talks this Fall

Starting  Wednesday, August 2, from 7-8pm, we will be running a series of artist talks this Fall at the Front. Each event will take place the Wednesday following our Friday openings, and will feature two member-artists. Come learn about what motivates them, how they do their work, how they started making art, and how their work has changed. We hope to see you there!

Wednesday, August 2, 2017, 7 – 8pm: Glen Coburn Hutcheson / Daryl Burtnett

Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 7 – 8pm: Lydia Gatzow / James Secor

Wednesday, October 11, 2017, 7- 8 pm: Alice Dodge / Sabrina Fadial

Wednesday, December 6, 2017, 7 – 8 pm: Melora Kennedy / Hannah Morris


Welcome new members at our Dec. 2 opening!

The Front is pleased to welcome three new members – Daryl Burtnett, Sabrina Fadial, and Lydia Gatzow! Their work will be included in Show 14, which opens Dec. 2nd, 4-8 pm. Join us for light refreshments, live music by Bob Hannan, and thought-provoking artwork.

In other news, it is with bittersweet notes of orange zest and blackberries that we announce Tremolo’s departure from the Front – we wish them well and hope to see them pop-up elsewhere soon! This also means our hours are changing back to Friday evenings (5-8pm) and Saturdays (11am-8pm).

Special Guests at July Opening

Our last opening, on July 29, featured some extra-special guests from the Montpelier Fire Department, who saved us from the terrible noise of a broken alarm system. The panel has been fixed, so we hope you’ll join us for our next opening in conjunction with Art Walk on September 2nd from 4-8 pm.

We will see if the work on display is equally inflammatory, and find out if Ben Cheney has added an awesome door-breaking axe to his art practice.

Tremolo coffee joins the Front

IMG_2543We are now an actual front: Tremolo, brainchild of Chris Gleason and Caroline Williamson, is now serving pour-over coffee at the Front. Tremolo is a slow bar serving pour over coffee highlighting specialty coffee from around the world through different roasters. They’re offering cold brew coffee and “nitro”–nitrogenated coffee that “pours like a Guinness” and brings flavors and sugars to the forefront of the coffee.
Tremolo is based at The Front Gallery, serving coffee from 8 AM to 12:00 PM, Monday through Saturday.
