Vermont painter William Chambers exhibits “Cold Series”, a selection of oil paintings at the City Hall Gallery from March 19 through June 12, 2013. An artist’s reception will be held on April 13, from 5 – 8 p.m. during Art Walk Easthampton. This exhibition is free and open to the public.
In his series of still life paintings, William Chambers explores vintage devices that manipulate water including ice boxes, thermoses, and ice cube trays. The discarded objects that serve as subject matter for his work were located in trash bins and thrift stores. Chambers sees the objects of chilly insulation from yesteryear serving as a metaphor for the human body.
