There’s a magic ingredient in the work of the two featured artists at the Brandon Artists Guild’s exhibit, and it’s probably not what you’d think it would be.

In Judith Reilly’s large quilted piece titled “Dusk at Birch Hill,” a collection of barns and houses and silos lean and huddle in to each other, surrounded by swaying birch trees under a yellowy orange sunset. It’s one of those pieces that looks one way from a distance, and a whole other world unravels up close — you can see the endless variation of fabrics used to depict rocks and grass and wood and stone but none of it is exactly rocks and grass and wood and stone.
