What Did the Rock Say?

What Did the Rock Say?
Description:

What Did the Rock Say? Part 1 is an exhibition of a two-year collaboration of artists Dianne Shullenberger and John Snell, currently being shown at the Emile A. Gruppe Gallery in Jericho.
Shullenberger works in colored pencil and fabric. Snell is a photographer.

Originally the mission of their project was to expose young artists to hiking to several rock outcrops and help inspire them to interpret the environment in their respective mediums: photography, writing and drawing. Thirteen middle school students participated in an organized hike to Libby’s Look in West Bolton. These students returned to their own communities to explore other rock sites. The hike was documented by Snell and will be on display as part of the exhibition.

Dianne and John, both avid hikers, continue to explore rock sites in Vermont. They have a similar way of interpreting what they see, concentrating on the intricate details of nature. This exhibition is an expression of their passion for rocks and being outside in Vermont.

There will be an artist reception on Sunday, March 4 from 2 pm – 4 pm. The show is on exhibit February 22 through March 18. At the reception writer, Zoe Fowler and poet, Mary Jane Dickerson will be reading from their works related to rocks. Cello music will be played by Maya Parry, a hike participant.

Time: 2/22/18 10:00am - 3/18/18 4:00pm

Description:

The Castleton University Art Galleries are excited to share "Living With The Earth," three collections of paintings by Joan Curtis, at Rutland City Hall.

The panel group At One with Nature’s Wiles refers to humans living with dramatic changes in the world of nature. The Peaceable Kingdom series expresses the hope that we can continue to live with the wild animals of the Earth. All three collections were created between 2008 and 2015.

Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts

Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts
Description:

The Why
Out-of-school learning programs in the summer months provide critical support and enriching experiences for children and teens.
A safe, healthy environment over the summer weeks can make all the difference in a child’s inner and outer well-being. The opportunity to discover or pursue passions is invaluable.
Self-confidence soars as collaborative abilities strengthen during camp experiences that develop age-appropriate skills.
The How
Get absorbed in imaginative, creative projects that whiz, buzz, jitter, wobble, wiggle, blink, and shine.
Learn about electrical circuitry and take away items that you may wish to continue working on at home
The What
Participants may choose to integrate their creations into video expressions that can be filmed and edited to include sound and animations.
With a wide variety of materials and digital media, this program experience will include construction of cardboard pinball machines, simple robots, and simple electronic wearable items.
Both an imaginative and creative outlet for vacation fun AND a structured opportunity to use building tools and follow a progression of skill-building.
We will build small robots, hack into electronic toys, and create wearable electronics such as bracelets, hats, hairbands, etc.
To learn about electrical circuitry, we'll use LEDs, coincell batteries and conductive materials such as thread, paint, and electro-dough.
We'll use hobby motors, alligator clips, and battery packs, and more.
We may even use a sewing machine, a soldering iron, or a dremel -- maybe even all three.
