SAXTONS RIVER — An artist reception for Melissa Rubin, whose exhibit, "Transience," is on display at Main Street Arts through March 20, will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. on Friday at the gallery at 35 Main St.

Rubin is a New York City and Vermont-based artist who has exhibited her work in galleries in New York, California and Vermont. Her work has been featured in ARTnews Magazine, on CBS This Morning, and has been used in performances and movie sets.

She is the recipient of Pollock-Krasner and New York Foundation for the Arts grants, as well as a Fulbright teacher fellowship to Japan.

She was a 2017 participant at the Master Abstraction Residency at MassMoCA, and was recently awarded the inaugural Binnie Bernstein grant to attend the International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, Mass.

In an artist statement, Rubin says, "Transience is the state in which I find myself on a regular basis; whether I'm confronting the ephemeral, fleeting nature of the emotions that fuel my art-making, or the physical and emotional quality of a life of transitions split between two geographical locations: New York City and Cambridgeport, Vermont."

Further information about the art show is available at, on Facebook on at 802-869-2960.

Now in its 31st year, Main Street Arts is a nonprofit arts center dedicated to serving the creative needs of the greater community and seeks to encourage creative expression through a wide range of artistic experiences.

The center is fully handicapped accessible.
