I honored my late husband Gary Paquet with a stone in Hope Cemetary carved by Giuliano Cecchinelli in 1999. Gary was an adventurer and sailor, so the sailboat represents his love for the journey. The stone is beautiful and I admire it on every visit to Vermont. I am in awe of this sculptor's art, and feel so fortunate that he created the memorial.

Thanks for covering this installation. I was incredibly impressed by it when I saw it. And, as a man, I could not escape a sense of guilt on behalf of my gender for our role in the pressure upon women, of all ages, to be what is socially regarded as "beautiful". These artists have done an incredible job on many levels in this installation and I look forward to Part 2.
I'm here to applaud Rachel's thought-provoking review of Kate Hunt-Shumlin's work. It may have been a mistake to premier the works in the Governor's office (ya think?), but nevertheless, I can appreciate what the artist was getting at. Bottom line: I like the work!
Wow - Tough crowd . Sorry Amelia but your post is not nasty and mean so it doesn't belong here .
Wow Shummy little girl bride is showing off her work, and to think she went to college to learn this pile of cow dung art..Did he give her a pat on the head and a lolly pop too? Little Katie must think her paper mache work is great, a 1st grader can do better work..Instead of displaying it in the governor’s ceremonial office it should had been displayed at a dump..What a waste of money and college time..Shummy take your little girl by her hand and go away..because we don't care what little Katie think.. we know what we think of her, a cheating Trollop..with a married man and Shummy is no better..that's why he married her so fast so he could take her to Paris with him so the taxpayers could foot the bill for a honeymoon..
Like any proud parent, Shumlin wanted to show of his child's school art project ! How sweet !
Kate's Paper-Mâché Madness !
Well here is something you won’t see every day – the state’s “First Lady” (actually the state’s second First Lady or the state’s “First Trollop”) displaying her inability to express her political opinions in paper-mâché.
David Schütz, the State House curator; who at first was at a loss for words, finally decided the artwork “speaks for itself” on WCAX's coverage of the display in the governor's office,
Shumlin tweeted that he was “proud of Kate’s works-of-art !”
I am sure that the folks at vtdigger (Anne and Diane) who were characterized as “cowpiediggers” in the first artwork “demon cows” will be especially appreciative of Ms. Hunt/Shumlin's portrayal of them. They have occasionally called my political expressions "nasty" - I will be curious what they will have to say about Kate and her “artsy” POS depiction of them ?
John S. Waters at VPO pastes up an interesting review at: https://thevpo.org/2016/06/07/point-of-spo…
It sounds like a witty, provocative and sophisticated exhibit, despite the mild snarkiness of this story, the integrity (and bravery) of the artist comes through. I hope I can see it.
Such a sweet story, the governor's wife just graduated from school and he proudly displayed her art. You have to admit, Shumlin brings a whole new perspective to the plague of male mid-life crisis. Perhaps Katie can make some silly papier-mache animals to satirize that!
(from a visiting 3rd grade class)
"What grade is Katie in?"
"Can we bring our art here?"
"Why is she so mad?"
All good questions.
Regarding the statement: "only one biennial is devoted to contemporary art by Native and indigenous artists," the Intercontinental Biennial of the Indigenous Art has been taking place in Quito, Ecuador, since 2006. The First Continental Biennale of Contemporary Native Arts was hosted in 2012 in Mexico City, Mexico.
This is a great exhibit. It hosts a wide terrain of work that speaks near and far at the same time.
Wonderful review! I really want to see it~and probably will!
Very nice review Pamela! Thank you!
Great review by Kevin Kelley. After getting over my annoyance at what seemed to be a "bait and switch" trick by the Fleming (not having the actual Picasso painting on view), I came to appreciate Janie Cohen's attempt to creatively re-envision exhibition design.
In regard to Avery Lee's comment, I thought it worth noting that I've visited the site three times and never encountered a dog. I was sorry to hear about that experience, but I don't think that dog lives on site.
This exhibit was nearly the perfect combination of rural and urban. I found many of the pieces inspriring and the bucolic backdrop added to the depth of the exhibit. HOWEVER, there was an aggressive, large dog loose on The King Farm that nearly bit my husband and made the experience unpleasant.
this is a fine show! Thanks for sharing, but we are "Citizens of the World" now, and you must remember to include the full location name in the body of the article for best results. "Waitsfield, Vermont USA " displays smoothly enough :-D And then when the casual reader goes hunting in the article to find the location exactly, there is that satisfaction - satisfied readers return. Je Reviens.
