Vermont Supreme Court Gallery

Vermont Supreme Court Gallery

Located in the lobby of the Vermont Supreme Court, at 111 State Street, just east of the State House, the Gallery hosts contemporary Vermont artists on a quarterly rotating basis.  This broad, open space lends itself well to larger works of art, and has for over 20 years hosted many of Vermont’s best painters, photographers, and installation artists.  The gallery is open Monday through Friday, excluding state holidays, from  8:00-4:30.   Its shows are presented in partnership with Justice Marilyn Skoglund.

Janie Cohen combines and hand-stitches old cloth into new contexts, some inspired by their histories, some by formal concerns or visual associations. This exhibition presents work created over many years along with a new body of work. Cohen sees her process as a combination of collecting, curating, and creating. In a time of growing sensitivity to cultural appropriation and authorship, and lessening heed to history, she uses the stitching needle to help her examine, honor, and remember.
