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.

Over the last 15 years Nitya Brighenti has built an expressive collection of oil paintings and watercolors. This thematic show presents a series of nomadic landscapes, still lifes and portraiture. Nitya Brighenti is a global traveler in every sense. His pictorial exportation and personal connection is gleaned from urban, desert, ruin and coastal environments—combined and transformed into a compelling visual narrative.
