Re: “Playtime: Tuned In Promotes Intersectional Feminism in Vermont Music

In what way is this "intersectional" feminism? Intersectional feminism is about the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and sexual identity as they apply to women. I saw nothing about race or class, and article doesn't even mention Lesbian musicians, where Lesbians might also be part of the intersecting axes of power/oppression. "LGBTQ" is not the same as "Lesbian."

I think the organization is interesting, we need to hear more Women's and Lesbian music. But I wish the editors would be careful with how they describe, or just repeat, the idea that this is "intersectional feminism."

Re: “Vermont Organizations Receive NEA Grants

I would have thought that picture of the mayor was from his Sinex mall negotiations.

Re: “Vermont Organizations Receive NEA Grants

In addition to promoting Weinberger, I'm surprised Seven Days didn't slip a reference to how long it's been since Bernie spoke to them .

Glad Miro's wearing clothing that matches the job he's doing.

Hi. You're embedded link at "here", which is supposed to go to a list of the artists in the show, instead goes to something about the Intervale

Just thought I'd mention it. But thanks for covering the show. Nice writing

Re: “Burlington's Brickwork Art Studios to Be Closed

I understand the concept of a free market, and I also understand the artists' perspective. Since money is the landlord's concern, couldn't he have raised their rents? Perhaps rent is regulated in Burlington. I am not a resident and speak from an outside perspective. But it is a commercial lease, so I would think he'd be able to raise the rent at lease renewal time. That would give him an increase in income and give the artists an option to stay or go. Just an idea, though it's probably not feasible, since he probably wants to rehab the place.

Any town would be blessed by the presence of these artists. I would love to see a renaissance in St. J., Barre, Rutland, etc. However, there is something lively about Burlington - the people, the lake... That wonderful flow of activity both inspires an artist and draws people who appreciate their art. So it would be difficult for an artist with a following to just uproot themselves and their families to start over in these places that, sadly, may lack an appreciation for what they have to offer. Not to mention, it would not be lucrative for them personally, since such a move would likely reduce their income even if it saved on rent.

Hoping the landlord manages it well, and praying the artists find a new home.

Re: “Burlington's Brickwork Art Studios to Be Closed

After letting the dust settle I felt the need to write a comment. As one of the longest standing tenants/artist at Brickwork Art Studios and one of the 14 artists in the building I felt it was important to let our voice be heard. Most of the artists in the building have been there anywhere from 2-5+ years. Every artist in our building is truly successful and has great pride. Some of the artists work full-time on top of working in their studios. Many contribute to the area by having classes, donating art work to many organizations and causes etc. Many of us own homes, yes homes. Mr. DeFrancis we are successful in our lives, you should be ashamed of yourself for making the comments you made. I have lived in the South End since the mid 60's and my father had a succesful business on Pine Street for 25 years. I grew up loving how diverse and "Artsy" this area was and is. After Overlake Park purchased the building it was very soon after that changes were taking place. The way that we were told we had to leave was not the best way to communicate with us to say the least, hiding behind his attorney rather than having a conversation with all of us spoke volumes about the owners character. I and all the Brickwork Art Studios Artists want to thank the Art community for reaching out to us, this is what makes the South End Arts and Businesses truly special. Paco DeFancis, your comments to the "artists" to move to Barre and St. Johnsbury is not an option and how utterly ridiculous you are. Perhaps those locations need someone like you to make them more " hip" just as the South End is.
