MANCHESTER- With a reception on Saturday, May 18, the Southern Vermont Arts Center will launch an exciting new season. Free to the public, the opening runs from 2 to 5pm and unveils seven new exhibitions in the Yester House Galleries and Elizabeth de C. Wilson Museum.

The Yester House features “Printemps: Visions of Spring,” a seasonal exhibition of works by regional artists. Also featured are exhibitions by Abby DuBow and Betsy Hubner and nine workshop instructors teaching at The Hay Madeira Center this summer.

The Wilson premieres a major exhibition, “Our Fragile Home,” a collaboration between Pat Musick and Jerry Carr, inspired by accounts of American and Soviet astronauts as they saw Earth from space. The exhibition runs through July 14, and then travels to The Housatonic Museum in Bridgeport, CT, and the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center.

The Wilson Museum also presents “Portraits Through Time: Selections From the Collection,” underscoring the Arts Center’s rich history and tradition with works by past and contemporary member artists. “Memorial Tribute: Abbe, Armstrong, McCabe and Webb,” honors the work and contributions of four highly-respected women artist members.

The 2013 season at the Arts Center includes diverse art, music, and performance events ranging from the Manchester Music Festival to the F3T Fly Fishing Film Festival presented by Orvis and on to Neil Berg’s “101 Years of Broadway,” and Bob Milne, celebrated ragtime/boogie-woogie pianist.

The Yester House exhibitions run through the end of June and the ongoing exhibitions at the Wilson end October 21. For specific information on the opening and the exhibitions see
