August 2020 News

Ideas Please...


With exhibitions having slowed, and the new reality of living in a COVID-19 world having taken root, news for this blog has pretty much dried up. I need suggestions for how to proceed.  As members, what does this blog mean to you and what would you like to see here?

I still think that this space could become a virtual gallery where members share their work, even if it isn't headed to an exhibition. It could also become a virtual bulletin board for sharing resources or information on techniques, websites, or books of interest. You might consider being the "blogger for the month", writing about something that is of particular interest to you and which you think would be valuable to other members (I would assist with uploading). 

In order to keep this entity going, I need your help coming up with content. I warmly welcome your suggestions and contributions (ehwfram@gmail.com). 



I know many of you are getting a lot of work done in your studios this summer, and others are struggling to find a work pattern in this time of new normal.

Austin Kleon is an author who draws. His books are the proverbial shot in the arm we all need from time to time, regardless of medium or how well things are progressing in the studio.



Written in 2019, his book Keep Going: 10 Ways to Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad is a quick and grounding read, perfect for this time. It will give you a boost no matter whether you're cranking out the work or just feeling cranky.

Enjoy this beautiful month of July in Vermont!
