    March 5, 2021 - November 29, 2021 @ The Front

    The Front presents "Daryl Burtnett: Respite", a solo show of recent work by the Front member artist. Burtnett's mixed media works on paper and canvas draw inspiration from the marks, textures and imprints time leaves on things and on us. Respite brings together work from the past several months, sharing works that have brought solace in these fraught times. Daryl Burtnett: Respite runs March 5th through November 29th. The Front is open Saturdays and Sundays 11-2, and Daryl welcomes showings by appointment. Join us for Daryl's artist talk via zoom on March 18th at 7:00pm; email info@thefrontvt.com to rsvp.
