Special Guests at July Opening

Our last opening, on July 29, featured some extra-special guests from the Montpelier Fire Department, who saved us from the terrible noise of a broken alarm system. The panel has been fixed, so we hope you’ll join us for our next opening in conjunction with Art Walk on September 2nd from 4-8 pm. We will see if the work on display is equally inflammatory, and find out if Ben Cheney has added an awesome door-breaking axe to his art practice.

Tremolo is based at The Front Gallery, serving coffee from 8 AM to 12:00 PM, Monday through Saturday.
