Edgewater Gallery at the Falls in Middlebury is aptly named: Large windows at the back afford a stunning view of the cascading Otter Creek. Inside, Edgewater presents a wide selection of contemporary works in multiple mediums and styles. One wall near those windows currently features abstract pieces on paper by Jane Davies — works whose own energy is a counterpart to the roaring waterfall. On her website, the Rupert-based painter, teacher and writer says, “I believe that making art is a journey, with very few hand-holds and only a general road map.” That spontaneity is manifest in her animated explorations of shape, line and color, the results of which compel a dialogue with the viewer.
