Re: “How Three Photographers View a Changing Vermont

I've much enjoyed the work of all three photographers. I'm not sure how Peter Miller's "Vermont Farm Women" escaped mention here as its images and the lives depicted are a rare and beautiful appreciation of those Vermont women who have held up half of our farm sky.

I was moved by Peter Miller's VTDigger commentaries as well; they have remained in my thoughts and won't leave. Vanishing Vermonters - joining what I fear to be a vanishing Vermont. The generations who can carry this heritage forward are hard at work here right now, but like their predecessors they are usually found where they work and live and they aren't easily visible. I hope today's citified and suburban as well as countrified Vermonters know how important their more rural counterparts are to our days ahead. What is old will be new...and more important than ever.

These books and these people have something for all of us.

Re: “How Three Photographers View a Changing Vermont

Thanks for the "Vermont is a Third World Country (but the People Don't Know" shout-out! I had the pleasure of directing this video in partnership with Gould and Stearns in 1987-88. Videographer: Ron Clark. Editor: Larry Evans.
If there was a music video produced in Vermont before this one, I'd like to see it.

Re: “How Three Photographers View a Changing Vermont

I got "Vanishing Vermonters" via the initial Kickstarter, mostly to support Mr. Miller and his work -- his essays in VT Digger over the past few years have been outstanding.

The book turned out to be one of the very best I've read this year. I learned a great deal and highly recommend it.

Re: “25 Years of the South End Art Hop

Hello! Thanks for the great article about the South End. I did want to clarify one point. The article states that
Lake Champlain Chocolates moved to the South End after attending the inaugural STRUT show in 2006. Lake Champlain Chocolates moved into its current building at 750 Pine in 1998 and has been located on Pine Street since 1983, first in the space now occupied by AO Glass and then in the Maltex Building, before moving further south on Pine to where we are now. The Lampman family and LCC have always been a strong supporter of both arts and business in the South End and value the role SEABA and the Art Hop plays in our community.

Re: “Vermont's Female Tattoo Artists Are Making a Mark

I had my first experience with Dana and the gang at Contour earlier this year and I gotta say I was completely blown away by the collective talent in that shop! They were all very friendly and personable, the shop was clean and had a great vibe. The piece I had done turned out so freakin amazing, I'll never get tattooed anywhere else again. The drive is definitely worth it!

Re: “Vermont's Female Tattoo Artists Are Making a Mark

Why bother having a feature for female artists if you're going to spend half the first interview focusing on a male artist? Smh...

Re: “Vermont's Female Tattoo Artists Are Making a Mark

The ladies of FTT are great and all, but they are by no means "slaying it". I have multiple friends that have been "on their waiting list" since late last year and haven't been given a consultation date yet. That's bad business.

Re: “Vermont's Female Tattoo Artists Are Making a Mark

`Meredith Muse does incredible work, and is just plain a wonderful human being. I recommend her highly. She also has some fabulous art work on display at the studio right behind Conant Glass. The show is called Conjuring and is on display all of may. As a matter of fact, the whole show is magical. I believe the studio is S.H.A.P.E or something like that.

Re: “Vermont's Female Tattoo Artists Are Making a Mark

Don't forget the fabulous ladies of Fortune Teller Tattoo at the Chase Mill in Burlington -- Laura, Zoe, and Zoe Margot (and eventually Ivan's new apprentice, Lauren). The girls of FTT are slaying it with Americana, traditional, neo-traditional, mandalas, illustrations...you name it. Located in a former yoga studio, FTT offers custom work by appointment in a clean and quiet, relaxed setting. There's ample parking and lots of great food, drink, and shopping nearby, too.
