August News

As we head into August, we're all trying to wring out as much as we can from the warmer temps and longer hours of daylight. Still, exhibition deadlines loom as we head toward fall. You might wish to consider the following opportunities as you plan ahead.

And while you're organizing your calendar, why not include one of the member exhibitions listed below?

But first...

Karen Henderson has been awarded a three week Artist Residency at The Quarry at Marble House Project in Dorset, VT for later this summer. There she'll have time and space to work, while meeting eight other artists from working in a variety of disciplines.  Karen will be experimenting more with integrating mixed media materials and techniques with her textile/fiber mediums and methods.

Some background:
The mission of Marble House Project nurtures the imaginative spirit. Through artist residencies, workshops and sustainable agriculture, Marble House Project promotes an innovative atmosphere and exchange of ideas. Inspiration, contemplation and creativity are the hallmarks of the program. Marble House Project is founded on the belief that the act of creating, whether through art or in nature is where human potential begins and community thrives.
