If you’re looking for something to do today in the central Vermont area, you can do no better than the Montpelier Art Walk, a wonderful event coordinated by Montpelier Alive. There are 25 venues participating in the Art Walk and you can download a guide to help get you started on your tour.
The Art Walk runs from 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
To make the Art Walk even more super awesome, I’ll be the featured artist at Vermont State Craft Center Artisans Hand Craft Gallery from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
I’ll be showing some of my one-of-a-kind work and will also be demonstrating.
But wait, there’s more!
I’ll also have a 2-minute, 1-sheet book project that you can take home with you! The idea behind the make-and-take is that it will tie into the POETRY Alive!, a joint project between Montpelier Alive and Kellogg-Hubbard Library. After attending the local poetry events, you will feel so inspired that you’ll go home and write poetry in your new book. 🙂
You can download a guide for your own self-guided tour.
The exhibit includes student and professional Vermont poetry, as well as those no longer writing among us, such as Robert Frost and Grace Paley. It features 80+ poets in 30+ venues, representing more than 20 Vermont cities and towns.
Here’s the schedule for today:
4:30 p.m. Group Poetry Reading at Vermont College of Fine Arts. Reception and book signing, featuring Jody Gladding , Wyn Cooper, Kerrin McCadden, Izabel Nielsen, Sophia Manley, and Paige Ackerson-Keily.
7:00 p.m. Randolph poet Linda Corelia will be reading from her poetry at The Shoe Horn (Art Walk venue#24). Her poem “Touchstone” is on display in their window as part of POETRY Alive!
I look forward to seeing you at Artisans Hand!
