Behrend Admission Center, Sterling College
January 30 - March 26
Come view scenes of Vermont's landscape, wildlife and barns depicted in our most recent exhibition of at Sterling College. Lawrence Fogg was born in 1929 in Pomfret, VT and lived his entire life in the state. A farmer by occupation, he was truly a jack-of-all-trades and spent his time gardening, fly fishing and woodworking. After his wife died in the late 1990’s, he was spiritually motivated to paint despite having no formal training. He enjoyed painting the varied scenes and seasons of Vermont in watercolor and acrylic, and painted many of his works on slate, which added background texture to the works. Upon his death in 2016, Fogg left his paintings to GRACE.
