- The postcard image for this year’s event is a painting by Galland Semerand, titled When My Ship Comes In. Using a softer palette, the artist captures a serene moment in a coastal village. The community in the painting and its harmonious coexistence with nature remind us of the richness of life that we so often see in our mountain village of Chermaitre.
All these milestones were achieved through the generous support of the local community in VHP’s art sales and fundraisers. The upcoming Auction & Sale will run from Friday, April 4, through Sunday, April 6, in the College Center Multipurpose Room on the second floor of Main Building at Vassar.
