The exhibit is at the invitation of fellow Brattleboro-West Arts members Petria Mitchell and Jim Giddings, owners of the Mitchell ● Giddings Fine Arts gallery. Its Annex exhibit space occupies the main part of the Atrium. They collaborated with the Brooks House management to create a venue in the hallway to showcase local artists.
