Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery is pleased to exhibit the paintings of Shelburne resident, Kate Longmaid. Longmaid’s gouache garden paintings have a velvety, matte finish that well represents the tactual softness experienced when immersed in greenery. In this exhibit, her garden series is shown together with her floral still-life paintings in oil. Together they reveal both the process and experience of being among the garden along with the clarity and beauty of the harvest.
“In these recent months, we’ve been reminded of the fragility and tenuousness of the human condition. Our true nature and vulnerabilities have been exposed. Nature offers us a haven, a sanctuary, as the source of all life. We need to get back to our roots in the soil, reconnect with the earth with renewed appreciation for what sustains, nurtures, and heals us.” -Kate Longmaid

Anne Cady is best known for her playful and bold Vermont landscape paintings. Her work is characterized by luminous saturated color, depicting the open pastures, farms, hills and mountains of Vermont’s Champlain Valley. Anne Cady Says of her work, “Through my paintings I am able to journey back to that slower country rhythm of the past, away from this hurry up world and into those open spaces that are so quickly disappearing. While on this ride I can be playful with the harmonious patterns of fields, forests and mountains that repeat themselves again and again within the landscape."

For many people, ancestral lineage organizations such as the Colonial Dames are a world apart. We might be intrigued by their celebration of family and colonial history, patriotic service, and shared values—or, alternately, made uncomfortable by perceptions of elitism surrounding their lineage-based membership. But who are these women—these Dames? This exhibit is a collection of oral history recordings and photographic portraits created by the Vermont Folklife Center featuring thirteen members of the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in the State of Vermont. The stories of these women bring to light life challenges met with grace and courage, opportunities embraced with pioneering spirit and preparedness, lives lived with a strong sense of purpose–and a coming to terms with aging.

From the Sandglass Archives
Sandglass Theater has created twenty-five productions since our founding in 1982. Most of these have been video recorded for archival purposes, which means they are for our own documentation, marketing, and press outreach. Some of these recordings are better than others, although none of them is recorded with the intention of conveying the full experience of a live performance. These recordings offer a window into our past for those who want to learn more about our history and how our work has developed over these decades. The videos we have selected offer insight into where we have been and where we are going.
Richard 3.5: Light Ruminations on Murder
A collaboration between Bob Berky and Sandglass Theater. Live from the 15th century, King Richard III is here to perform, for your enjoyment, 11 murders and 7 songs that Shakespeare never meant to write. Surrounded by larger-than-life candles, whose wax is used to create the puppet victims before your eyes, Richard and his emcee accomplice dance and sing their way through this epic tragedy.
Isidor’s Cheek, Family Audiences
So begins the song, which begins the story, which begins the adventure: One day, something drives Isidor from his little grey existence. His cheek runs away and Isidor must search around the world to find it again: a world of color and beauty as well as loneliness and even danger. Inspired by a German children’s book.
Large scale new paintings by career artists Patrick Dunfey, Pam Glick, and Richard Jacobs. Order and disorder, chaos and structure, work and play. What will happen and when? Thought and intuition the great rivalry.
