State of the Arts

Speaking of new artistic ventures, Vermont photographer John Churchman and his wife Jennifer are opening a photography gallery in Stowe next week. Taking the same name as their studio/greeting card company in Essex, the Brick House Studios Gallery will be just that - a working studio where Churchman plans to teach the craft and science of digital photography as well as make prints on the premises. The gallery will offer his own contemporary, manipulated images and works by fellow Vermont art photogs Steve Goodman, Peter Miller, Victoria Blewer and others, Churchman says. Located next door to Gracie's on the Mountain Road, Brick House will host a "soft opening" on May 1 and a "grand" one mid-summer. For more info, see

Voices, the movie? Yep. The acclaimed youth-empowering musical-theater production The Voices Project, which is based on the writings of more than 1000 Vermont teens and toured the state in 2005, is going to the big screen. That is, after Kingdom County Productions - a.k.a. husband-and-wife team Jay Craven and Bess O'Brien - shoots it this summer. And that would be after KCP finds actors to be in it.

This Sunday, April 29, auditions will be held for teen dancers - think hip-hop, modern, jazz and/or ballet - to fill six to eight roles. Auditions for teen and adult actors will be held on Saturday, May 5 - a monologue and song are required for the former, monologue only for the latter. In addition, the filmmakers are looking for teen interns interested in working in any capacity with the film production crew. All auditions will be in Burlington; aspiring actors, dancers and singers must make an appointment in advance by calling 802-592-3190.
