G. Roy Levin (1930-2003): A Retrospective will be on exhibition in the College Hall Art Gallery at Vermont College of Fine Arts this week, March 20-30, noon to 4:00 pm.

Saturday, March 31 gallery hours are 1:00-3:00 pm, and a closing reception open to the public will be hosted from 5:00-7:00 pm.

Levin founded the MFA in Visual Art program at Vermont College in 1991. At the time it was the first low-residency masters degree offered in visual arts in the country. In addition to being a scholar, Levin had an active art practice throughout his career. Focusing on the detritus of life, he used found and everyday objects as the material to create his art. From an old fruit crate to a discarded candy wrapper, Levin took the everyday and made it into something extraordinary. On exhibit in the main gallery of College Hall will be a sampling of the work created over Levin's 73 year career in the arts.

G. Roy Levin (1930-2003): A Retrospective is curated by VCFA staff member Phillip Robertson, and coincides with the Vermont College of Fine Arts "Open House" on Saturday, March 31.
