Still Learning To See

What did the rock say?


Collaboration among artists can be so energizing! I am fortunate to be involved in a project with Dianne Shullenberger, a fabulous fabric artist, and Zoe Fowler, a gifted writer.  Both women are also devoted to being out-of-doors in all kinds of weather as a source of inspiration for their work. We make a good trio for a project Dianne conceived called “What did the rock say?” We are leading ten hikes of various lengths to some of our favorite rock sites in Central Vermont; joining us will be middle-and high-school age students who are interested in also being inspired to create and work on art.

Our initial hike on Sunday with twelve students was a wonderful celebration of spring in Vermont, a gorgeous view from Libby’s Look in West Bolton, and artists who are collaborating with each other. Throughout the summer we’ll continue to refine the project and acquire funding with the intention of going full-steam ahead in September.

The trail overflowed with gifts from which we’ll create art, including these photographs.
