Program Fee: Full program fee $1440, Discounted program fee $1020
Karmê Chöling offers two price options for this program in order to support a variety of financial needs. Please choose the option that falls within your means.

Price includes meals but not accommodations. Call Karmê Chöling directly at 802-633-2384 to book accommodations after registering for the program. You can find information on the web at www.karmecholing.org/accommodations.php

It is traditional for students to offer a monetary gift to the teacher in appreciation for receiving the teachings, and in recognition of the years of training and understanding the teacher has cultivated. There will be an opportunity to offer a teaching gift at the program.

This two-week group meditation retreat is open to anyone and is a very powerful introduction to and deepening of mindfulness-awareness meditation. This meditation retreat has a theme of contemplative arts, allowing for an exploration of how working intensely with the mind/body unity can become the ground of discovering elegance and leading a more artful life.

Activities involving contemplative arts will be incorporated into the schedule to explore how meditation practice can be extended into our daily lives, whether we are making a cup of tea, having a conversation, painting on canvas, or writing a poem or novel. Whether or not we are practicing artists, when we wake up, we can all lead our life as a work of art. Dathün provides a powerful way of realizing and manifesting this.

Silence and functional speech are observed. Meals are served oryoki-style, from the Zen monastic tradition. Each participant will regularly receive individual meditation instruction.

River Works - Exhibit at The Gallery at River Arts

River Works - Exhibit at The Gallery at River Arts Vermont Arts 2015
Description:

Featuring works by:

Arista Alanis • Kevin Fahey • Janet Fredericks
John Miller • John Sargent • Rett Sturman
Kathryn Lipke Vigesaa

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 7th, 5-7pm


​​The Gallery at River Arts celebrates a powerful collection of images, colors, textures and constructions directly inspired by Vermont rivers and water meditations in the group show – River Works.

Alanis brings expressive abstraction to her paintings and charcoal drawings, while Sargent’s work speaks to man’s impact on the natural world. Miller’s photographs reveal his multi-faceted connection to rivers: emotional, historical, aesthetic, visceral, and sensual. Frederick’s drawings, paintings and scrolls function as conversations and maps of her native surroundings, while Fahey’s paintings reflect the juxtaposition of the powerful and soothing qualities of rivers. Sturman’s painting of Ricketson Farm in Stowe is spellbinding in its translation of light. Lipke describes her video installations and vessels constructed with handmade paper as “a subtext to the cyclical, regenerative and spiritual properties of water.” Each piece in River Works brings own unique dialogue to the conversation many visual artists have with nature.

Gallery Hours: Monday-Thursday 9:00-4:00p.m., Fridays 9:00-2:00p.m, closed Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call 802-888-1261, or visit their website at www.RiverArtsVT.org.

Susan Wahlrab: Seasons

Susan Wahlrab: Seasons
Description:

The North Gallery of West Branch hosts Susan Wahlrab’s new exhibition entitled Seasons and is on view through August 31. Her unique watercolor technique is impressionistic when viewed from a distance alluding to the British Romantic landscapes of J.M.W. Turner and Monet. Their influence is clearly evidenced, yet viewed up close, one is surprised to see tiny pools, miniscule etchings in the wash of color, like watery hieroglyphics. Almost encaustic in their layered density, the paintings look and feel wet from the coating of glossy clear varnish.

American Moderns, 1910–1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell

American Moderns, 1910–1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell
Description:

Organized by the Brooklyn Museum, American Moderns presents almost 50 artworks from its collection in a variety of styles that explore the depth and range of American modern painting and sculpture.

Museum director Tom Denenberg said, “While Shelburne Museum is best known for its early American paintings and vast folk art collection, at the end of her life, Museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb (1888-1960) planned to expand the Museum’s collection to include modernist paintings and sculpture. This exhibition not only allows visitors a rare opportunity to experience modern masters in Vermont, but it also completes what might have been Mrs. Webb’s ultimate vision for the museum. She wanted to present a piece of what Georgia O’Keeffe called, ‘this great American thing’ to Vermont audiences.”

This is the last stop on the tour for the exhibition, and perhaps a once in a lifetime moment for art lovers in Vermont to see this important group of artworks. Forty-four paintings and three sculptures will be on view in Shelburne Museum’s Pizzagalli Center for Art & Education by such artists as Georgia O’Keeffe, Milton Avery, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Elie Nadelman and Norman Rockwell. Vermonters will be pleased to note that artists Rockwell Kent and Luigi Lucioni, who are both included in this exhibition, spent time in Arlington and Manchester, Vermont, respectively.

Judy B. Dales: Ahead of the Curve

Judy B. Dales: Ahead of the Curve
Description:

The unique contemporary work of quilt artist Judy B. Dales of Greensboro, Vermont, is on view in Shelburne Museum’s Hat and Fragrance Gallery. The opening of the exhibition titled Judy B. Dales: Ahead of the Curve will coincide with the opening of Shelburne Museum’s grounds and gardens on May 1 and continue on view until October 31.

Dales, whose art is represented in the White House Collection of American Crafts in Washington D.C., is internationally acclaimed for her innovative use of curves, abstract designs, sensitive layering of textures, and sophisticated pairings of soft, pastel fabrics. Dale’s quilt “Dancing On The Dark Side of The Moon” (1997) was exhibited in the International Quilt Festival’s 100 Best Quilts of the 20th Century exhibition in 2000 and included in the book of the same name. Dales is currently working on an exhibition catalogue in conjunction with this exhibition.

The quilts featured in this exhibition were made during the last eighteen years and are inspired by Dales’ free-form sketches or the effects of moonlight on snowy landscapes. Her “palette is a subconscious celebration of femaleness, as well as a very conscious expression of feminism,” as she says in her artist statement and in her memoir. By embracing feminism and revitalizing the curved form in quilts, Dales continues to be ahead of the curve.
