Okemo Mountain Resort’s Jackson Gore Inn is currently displaying the work of local artists in a newly opened gallery. The gallery features a variety of artists and different art media. The unifying element of the gallery is that the art includes subject matter that is distinctly Vermont. Visitors will see the local landscape and the Vermont experience through the works of local painters, photographers, sculptors and fiber artists, among others.

“We are trying to give our guests a place to experience what makes Vermont, and especially the Okemo Valley, such a beautiful place to visit all throughout the year,” said Jackson Gore Inn Concierge Bill Graf. “We will be turning the gallery over seasonally to give different artists in the area an opportunity to promote their work.”

The premiere exhibit features: watercolors by Sally Brandenburg, folk art paintings by Martha Stevenson, impressionistic watercolors and acrylics by Bob Sydorowich, wood sculptures by Wendy Lichtensteiger, photography by Peter Manship and Stanley Brick.

The Jackson Gore Gallery is located in a second-floor common area above the Inn’s lobby and is open to the public. Visitors interested in purchasing art pieces may do so by contacting the artists directly.
