Go Figure Sculpture Studios, a not-for-profit entity, is located in the Canal Gallery Building, an old paper mill that has been converted to artist studios. Founded by sculptor Lee Hutt, the studio exists to give artists and opportunity to work from life on a regular and affordable basis. While they do not offer formal classes, they are open to new members of all levels. Teaching is done informally as members are always available to advise one other. Studio members, who live locally and as far away as Boston and Burlington, CT, have been juried into national competitions and have won awards and recognition in various professional art venues.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and selected Saturdays, 8:30 a.m. to noon. For more information, go to www.williston.com/grubbsgallery.
