The Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne will celebrate its 25th anniversary this May with an exhibit titled “Looking Back.” Originally known as Shelburne Frame and Art, the business evolved from restoration and custom framing services into a high-quality gallery for local artists. To mark this milestone, Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery will highlight some of the talented people whose work appeared in the gallery’s early years.
“Looking Back,” will feature 17 artists: Julie Y Baker Albright, Joan Curtis, Dan Fisher, Jim Giddings, Alison Goodwin, Henry Isaacs, Hal Mayforth, Petria Mitchell, Alice Murdoch, Carolyn Shattuck, Phoebe Stone, Aron Tager, Polly Thompson, David Utiger, Laura Von Rosk, Mark Walp and Richard Weinstein. A reception will be held on Friday, May 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. to open the exhibit, and the show will run through July 5. Furchgott Sourdiffe prides itself in showcasing distinctive and original art. Charlotter Alice Murdoch will be showing her unique portraiture for a second time at Furchgott Sourdiffe in this exhibit. Her oil paintings depicting a variety of people—and sometimes animals—have been exhibited throughout the East coast. Many other Charlotters have had work shown at Furchgott Sourdiffe, including Annemie Curlin, Emily Bissell Laird, Tracy Burhans and former resident John Douglas.
