Re: “Roger Weingarten

I LOVED this beautiful show of Roger Weingarten's digital art and a few very entertaining sculptures. The first wonderful thing that blew me away was the saturated jewel-toned color to be found throughout the framed art. Then, as I looked more closely and carefully, I found that amazing images seemed to keep popping out and surprising me in almost every piece. The show seemed to have been hung in such a way as to provide a "flow" from one piece to the next with the variety of mood and subject making the viewer want to find out "what's next".

Re: “'Material Matters'

Judy Dales of the Exhibition Committee offered the following comment:

"This exhibit presents an exciting sampler of the work being done by fiber artists today: baskets with unusual surface treatments; knitted sculpture, both thought provoking and whimsical; quilted works ranging from complex subtle designs to bold, graphic work; woven wearables to wall weavings; hand painted and dyed fiber pieces; and imaginative assemblages made from both fiber and natural objects. The items in this exhibit cross boundaries, sometimes obviously fiber work, other times mixed media, thus truly representing the broad range of surface design today."

Exhibit dates will be June 1 - 28, 2016

Re: “Wildlife Social & Film

How timely this event is! Recent public protest from the majority of NH residents have spoken loudly against the proposed bobcat trapping/hunting and recently the publicized concern from residents of Shoreham, VT with coyote killings. What a marvelous opportunity for the Vermont and New Hampshire /Dartmouth community to have a chance to learn not only how essential predators and wildlife are to the ecosystem but also to gain awareness how we as citizens can do more as animal stewards, learn about sustainable and non-lethal methods ,and how to become advocates against animal and wildlife cruelty or the barbaric-savagery of trapping. Looking forward to an incredible panel of presenters and the feature film; Medicine of the Wolf and meeting the Protect Our Wildlife representatives.

Re: “Seed Swap & Garden Workshops

Don't miss this fun community event! The swap is noon-3pm with workshops on Garden Planning with Lisa Coven at 1pm and Seed Starting For Less with Ron Krupp at 2:30pm.

A few tips:
WHAT TO BRING: Your own saved seeds, extra purchased seeds, seeds brought back from another region or country. Please label with variety and date harvested. (No GMO seeds please.) If you don’t have seeds to share, consider bringing another garden-related item to swap (a garden book, extra tools, garden preserves, a snack). Donations are also welcome for the Community Teaching Garden scholarship fund.
HOW IT WORKS: All the seeds will be sorted into categories on tables. Participants add their seeds and select the seeds they want, putting them into provided envelopes. There will be a separate area for saved and special seeds (heirlooms, small quantities, unusual varieties, etc.) so that participants can talk to each other about the seed origins. There will also be extra seeds donated by High Mowing Seeds and Gardener’s Supply, so everyone will have seeds to bring home.

WORKSHOPS:
1pm: GARDEN PLANNING FOR COMPANION AND SUCCESSION PLANTING with Lisa Coven - This fun and interactive seminar will explore the different reasons for companion planting and how to plan for succession planting so you can harvest short-growing crops all seasons long. Participants are encouraged to bring a list of plants they would like to grow this season. At the end of the session, each gardener will leave with a map to help them plan and manager their garden.
2:30pm: SEED STARTING FOR LESS with Ron Krupp - This hands-on workshop will include a discussion on germination mixes, potting soils, seed starting dates, grow lights vs. sun light, containers, the use of cold-frames, greenhouses and more. Please bring your garden questions.

Re: “Writing Salon

Friday night’s Writing Salon was a welcome relief from the inner critic rather than the joyous expression of writing I usually experience during these group meetings. This was rather apropos considering Ms. Parent started that night’s session with a discussion of how the inner critic stops us from writing to our full potential. Talking about my adversarial writing partner, the one that finds my fantasy writing superfluous, my creative non-fiction lackluster, and my short stories boorish, feels rather akin to pulling a sleeping lion’s tail, but I did it anyways. In fact, the experience was refreshing, like acknowledging the elephant in the room.

After the small debriefing, my fellow writers and I were given the prompt of saying what we know we cannot say. Like every prompt, it’s meant to be taken however the listener desires. With Ms. Parent’s advice on how to deal with the inner critic and the freeing nature of the prompt, I produced a full-bodied story of things I could actually say to someone. Maybe it didn’t follow the stated intent of the prompt, but if fulfilled the underlying purpose of silencing my inner critic and inhibitions.

Of course my peers wrote witty and hilarious works about the things they want to say to someone. As always, it was a pleasure to share my writing with others and to give and receive supportive feedback. It was not my easiest day writing, but just like going to gym, there are always days that are harder than others. The point is to get on with it anyways. Thanks Ms. Parent for another successful writing session.

Great organization and alternative for youth! Where else can kids actually help on real disaster and SAR missions and get to fly airplanes!

I knew Jeremy years ago and always had faith in him as a fine young man. It's good to see him doing so well and remaining positive. Will be up to Burlington soon to check out the exhibit.

Re: “'Edge of Nature'

What a delight to have stumbled on this show on a trip up from Boston. The setting was stunning, and the talent abounded. Who knew what artistic talents are hidden on the back roads of beautiful Vermont! The birch paintings by Barbara Gordon are so incredible I wanted to reach out and touch them. Karen Tusinski's floral and fruit paintings threw out such vibrancy, and I loved Sky Hoyt's use of color - fantastic.
go, go, go!

Re: “David Stromeyer Sculpture

This is a MUST-SEE/DO in Vermont!!! The sculptures are extraordinary and the grounds a pleasant stroll, with a gentle meadow surrounded by hills. To hear the sculptor talk of his work is even more delightful. Many arts-connected activities are planned on the CHSP grounds this season.
