The Earth Bestows


Perennial Perspective in the Art

All Souls Interfaith Gathering Gallery
Shelburne, Vermont

Opening: October 1, 2021
Panel discussion: October 2, 2021
Exhibit by appointment only; runs through October 31, 2021

The artists are affiliated with New Perennials—a multiyear project exploring the restorative powers of perennial thought and action in agriculture, education, the arts, wellness, and sacred practice traditions. The artists share observations and reverence of living and giving witness to the many ways the Earth bestows.

Artists from Kansas to Maine gather selections of their work for The Earth Bestows, a month-long exhibition that explores the fertile and fraught relationships with our living Earth. The Exhibition opens Friday, October 1, from 5 to 7 pm at All Souls Interfaith Gathering, 291 Bostwick Farm Road, Shelburne, Vermont.
