BENNINGTON -- Students from the Humanities Quest for Success course at Southern Vermont College will present their display of artwork in the Burgdorff Gallery. The public is invited to view the exhibit of pastels and charcoal, which will be on display until Jan. 15, weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (except when the College is closed from Dec. 24 to Jan. 1).

The course, taught by Associate Professor Greg Winterhalter, brings together personal history, creative expression and the benefits of community engagement by having students use their abilities to write, create visual art and practice drama and music. The students worked collaboratively after studying modernist trends in the arts. For more information on the art display, contact Associate Professor Winterhalter at 802-447-6316 or e-mail gwinter@svc.edu.
