It is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of an exhibit by accomplished photographer and dedicated staff member, Amanda Lass, Program Coordinator for woodworking at Burlington College.Altitude, which shows at The Gallery from March 1st to April 29th, features the steep slopes and breathtaking vistas of mountainous country. From the glacially-rounded peaks of the Green Mountains to the majestic crags of volcanic peaks in Ecuador, Amanda's photography features stark and imposing beauty of these geological icons across the globe.
Born and raised in northern Pennsylvania on the borders of the Endless Mountains, for many years Amanda took their beauty for granted. As a teenager, Amanda began working for VanZandbergen Photography and through their mentorship discovered that photography could go beyond being a hobby and become an informed college degree choice. Persuing her dream, Amanda graduated with a BFA in Design with an emphasis in Photography from Marywood University in 2010 before moving to northern Vermont. Now living and working in the Green Mountains, Amanda appreciates how this mountain chain has helped her appreciate her childhood environment and informed her current photographic work.
Join us Thursday, March 3rd at 4pm for an Opening Reception and artist Q&A.
