Rejoicing in Rutland

“Rutland Postcard,’’ by Susan Weiss, in the show “Rutland: Real and Imagined,’’ at Alley Gallery, Rutland, through March 9. The show, created by curator Stephen Schaub, has brought eight distinguished photographers to look at   the history, geography and people of the small central Green Mountain State city. Alley Gallery says: "in the hands of an artist, a photograph can do more than tell you what a place looks like. It can tell you how a place is."
