As the colder weather takes hold and our virus numbers tick up, we in VT seem to be socially-distanced (physically, anyway) more than ever right now. The need to stay creatively connected is crucial. For many, the silver lining has been having a chance to work diligently in the studio without as many of the usual interruptions. Perhaps you have taken advantage of this time to attend an online workshop or have discovered (or are developing) a new process that you'd like to share? If so, we'd love to hear about it!
Don't forget, this blog is a forum for helping us to remain connected and for sharing our experiences along the way. We'd all love to hear what's inspiring you.
Deadline for submissions is one week prior to the last day of each month.

Have you participated in one of Eve Jacobs-Carnahan's Knit Democracy Together knitting circles? If not, you will want to check out the progress she is making with her ongoing project to bring greater awareness to campaign finance reform. Eve is creating a positive model of democracy, both literally and figuratively. And you can help!
There are several ways to learn more. Visit Eve's Knit Democracy Together website, read the recent SDA blogpost describing Eve's endeavor, or listen to Eve discuss the project with Alyson Stanfield on her Art Biz Podcast, episode #64.
For those of you who may not have made it to see The Sheltering in Place project at the Highland Center for the Arts last summer, you can now view a short video of the exhibition. It conveys the extraordinary nature of the experience and is a work of art in and of itself. Created by Hasso Ewing (who conceived of and organized the SiP project), her husband Bob Hannan, and son Seamus Hannan, it includes the work of members Dianne Shullenberger and Elizabeth Fram.
The Cultural Center of Cape Cod holds international exhibitions in both online and in-person galleries. Elizabeth Fram's piece "Caught Red-Handed" can now be viewed as part of their online show Wild Things, which pays homage to essence of power, vulnerability, and instinct that is intrinsic to the animal kingdom.
