The September-October exhibit in the Amy E. Tarrant Gallery
features paintings by Lynn Rupe. Her paintings create a
kaleidoscopic feeling – large abstract works on panels
filled with colorful, repeated geometric patterns. Her works
draw the viewer into a dance of discovery – they are
like puzzles, an array of images that resist straightforward
interpretation. Rupe’s paintings walk the line between
meaning and chaos, providing clues that spark a dialog with
The exhibition of Rupe’s work connects
with the live performance of Philip Glass’s score
and the showing of Godfrey Reggio’s 1983 cult film
Koyaanisqatsi. Both Rupe’s paintings and the film
are kaleidoscopic presentations of colorful imagery that
reference and reflect multiple cultures and settings. Click

A graduate of the University of Vermont and Vermont Studio
Center’s MFA program, Rupe has taught in public and
private programs and her work has been exhibited in Vermont,
Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Italy. She has also served
on the board of Burlington’s Arts Alive.
