Gallery at the Garden presents exhibit examining homelessness


BRATTLEBORO >> The Gallery at the Garden features a new show during the month of December: Coffee & Conversation — Stories of Homelessness, by Liz LaVorgna and Wyatt Andrews. Stories of Homelessness is a photography and video exhibit with a community art wall installation that brings together two cross-sections of our community: people experiencing homelessness and people who have stable housing.

The Gallery is located at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, home of Strolling of the Heifers. Normal gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except during special events at the River Garden). The Gallery is located at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, 157 Main Street, Brattleboro.

Throughout the month the show's creators will host "Coffee & Conversation Hours" (with coffee provided) in order to create awareness about how we connect as human beings and how we respond to community issues. The hope is that by showing and encouraging conversation, it will help the community to connect and treat each other with kindness, respect, and dignity.

Coffee & Conversation Hours will take place as part of the River Garden's Brown Bag Lunch series, from noon to 1 p.m. this Friday, Friday, Dec. 18, Tuesday, Dec. 22, and Friday, Dec. 29.
