'Shedding Light on the Working Forest' 

When: Jan. 15-April 30 2016
Phone: 802-388-4964
The collaboration of painter Kathleen Kolb and poet Verandah Porche, previously exhibited at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, has taken up residence at the Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury. Kolb’s realist paintings depict the state’s lumber industry in carefully rendered scenes of the daily labor behind harvesting trees. Porche uses words toward the same end, crafting lines such as “Full moon reads zero / and falling. Loggers’ paradise. / Sap gels in the maples… / Each elegant scheme / is a rough draft of Utopia.” An exhibition-related colloquium is March 10, 12:30 to 1:20 p.m., at the Franklin Environmental Center in Middlebury.
