Nancy Fitz-Rapalje, “A Still Life” opens at Canal Street Art Gallery

BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Canal Street Art Gallery presents Nancy Fitz-Rapalje, “A Still Life,” opening online May 13 through June 13.

Nancy Fitz-Rapalje, based in Bellows Falls, presents paintings of her familiar floral still-life fruits and vegetables. These new paintings focus on intimate details from the artist’s life, depicting sticky-notes, origami, book stacks, color chips, and postcards showing reproductions of artworks from the likes of Braque and Duchamp. Fitz-Rapalje includes quotes from other artists.

Fitz-Rapalje says, “I think of my small paintings as ‘companions’ rather than an artistic ‘statement’. I hope they may exist with generations of a family living around them. I imagine my tulips or peaches being quiet observers of different lives performed in their space. I consider it theater in two directions – observer to painting and painting to observer.”

View “A Still Life” at starting May 13. On Friday, May 15, Canal Street Art Gallery will be live online at 6 p.m. for our virtual gallery event. Go to or to participate in this virtual gallery showing.

Canal Street Art Gallery is also pleased to now offer private appointments, Wednesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information and to schedule your private viewing, call 802-289-0104 or email Canal Street Art Gallery is located at 23 Canal St. in Bellows Falls, Vt.
