The All Souls Church Friends of the Arts curates exhibits by local artists for our art gallery and are in keeping with our UU principles.  Art sales generate commissions to support the building and All Souls programs. (Commission rates are 20% for members and 25% for non-members.)

Currently on exhibit is the new work of local artist Simi Berman who has been an artist for many years. Her work has included illustration, ceramic sculpture , oil painting and collage. She has exhibited her ceramics and humorous prints and cards at the Sharon Arts Center in NH, her collages at the Marblehead Arts Center in Marblehead MA. and oil paintings at Candle in the Night in Brattleboro among others. Her most recent exhibit of collages was at the Moore Free Library in Newfane VT. during July of 2019. For the past seven months Simi has grown interested in working on a small scale primarily in watercolor and gouache. When she embarks upon a painting it is an adventure which unfolds slowly, the inner world subtly influenced by what is taking place in the world outside, final destination unknown.

Simi’s work will be on exhibit at the West Village Meeting House: All Souls Church during the months of November and December. The exhibit may also be seen virtually online on the church websiteThere were plans for a reception, but they were cancelled due to new Covid recommendations from Gov. Phil Scott. There will be a reception on Saturday, November 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. (Covid measures requiring masks and distancing will be in order). Visits at other times may be arranged by e-mailing Simi.  You may see Simi’s previous work on her website simiberman.com.
