Fall has been slow to arrive in Vermont—the hills are barely showing the changes that will be so dramatic in just a few weeks time—like the photograph above of a hill farm in East Montpelier. But that’s not all bad as I’ve been busy creating two new photography shows that I’ll hang in this week—a group show at Montpelier ArtsFest 2105 and a solo show at Fresh Tracks Farm Vineyard and Winery in Berlin.
At ArtsFest I’ll be sharing space with my friends from the f/7 Photography Group, all under the theme of “Going Places.” I’ve had great fun pulling this show together, mainly from past, unprinted work, related not only the where I have enjoyed going but how I got there. The new prints, all 13×17 unframed works-in-progress, are gorgeous! ArtFest will open next Saturday, October 3rd, (10-8) and run the following two Saturdays (9-1). The whole town will be full of great art of all kinds and our’s will be on the first floor of The Garage (near State and Elm). Over the next several days, I’ll share more of the work I’ll be showing.
• A Peacham Hillside in Spring
There are many magical times and places in Vermont, but few are as gorgeous as Peacham on a fine day in May. Add an old stone fence, a big maple and a hillside of spring green and it might be a great place to just spend forever.
The show at Fresh Tracks is my first there, having met the owners last spring at another of my shows, and promises to be a wonderful venue, both for art as well as beverages! The show goes up Friday, October 2nd, for the rest of the month, and we’ll have an opening on Sunday, October 4th from 3:00-5:00.
The show I currently have at Harkness Library at Vermont Technical College runs through Wednesday, October 7th. It is a lovely collection of 21 framed photographs all made in and around Central Vermont.
Finally, my photographs of last year’s trip to Botswana are hanging for a while longer at the Savoy Theater
on Main Street in Montpelier. I love seeing these images whenever I’m there both because the remind me of a great trip and also because they are wonderful photographs! I’ll hang a new show later in October.
Two of my goals are to enjoy photographing life and to create opportunities to have others see what I’m seeing!
