Eve Jacobs-Carnahan will be exhibiting at The Knitting Studio at the upcoming Art Walk in downtown Montpelier.
She creates amazing and unusual fiber art using traditional knitting techniques. Eve hand spins her own yarn which gives her full control of her palette including color, shine, texture and thickness.
She draws on her experiences, including gardening and travel, to inform and inspire her work. She is insightful and allows a fresh look at seemingly familiar objects. Her work has been exhibited recently at Galerie Kasini in Montreal and in twelve US states. She is a featured artist in the book Astounding Knits by Lela Nargi.
Come meet and visit with Eve and enjoy her wonderful creations on Friday, April 22nd from 4 to 7:30 p.m. It will be a terrific evening!
The Knitting Studio is located at:
97 State Street, Montpelier, VT

Call to Artists for City Hall Plaza
Montpelier Alive seeks proposals for a set of banners or banner-like works of art to be hung on the light poles in front of Montpelier City Hall from June 1 through October 15, 2011. City Hall Plaza is a highly visible location in the heart of Vermont’s bustling capital city that has displayed a variety of solid color and photographic banners over the past eight years. The successful new design will be a creative response to the plaza, the city and its surroundings. Designs will be judged on their creativity, visual impact from the street, and durability.
The plaza has six light posts, each with two sets of horizontal banner arms. The twelve pairs of arms are 43.5” apart (from the top of each arm to the bottom of each arm) and are each 18” wide. The new work of art should fill the available space on all six light poles (individual arms may be removed) and must be able to withstand summer weather conditions for five months. It may be mechanically reproduced or hand-crafted. The design must not include any words or graphic references that can be construed as advertising and must be appropriate for a public place. Montpelier Alive can provide information on dimensions of past banners and on past mechanical reproduction methods upon request.
One winning artist will receive:
$800 fee for materials and honoraria
One month to complete and install the new work
Completed project will be on display from June through October 2011
DEADLINE: 12 noon, Friday, April 29, 2011.
