When: Through Dec. 29
Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics As If People Mattered, a book by British economist E.F. Schumacher, was published in 1973. But the title catchphrase continues to resonate more than 40 years later, even if the book’s thesis has not. Northern Daughters supports the scaled-down idea with art, as evidenced by the Vergennes gallery’s fourth annual small works show. Opened last week for the holiday season, it features paintings — some could fit in stockings! — by Anne Cady, Hannah Sessions, Bonnie Baird, Brenda Myrick, Pamela Smith and Reid Brechner.
