Mosher's DISAPPEARANCES at Lost Nation Theater

Mosher's DISAPPEARANCES at Lost Nation Theater

HOWARD FRANK MOSHER'S "DISAPPEARANCES" STAGED BY LOST NATION THEATER

LOST NATION THEATER BRINGS ANOTHER VERMONT STORY TO LIFE ON STAGE!! Join us for an event that goes to the heart - in the heart - of the heart - of our beloved Green Mountain home. For the last 30 years, Lost Nation Theater’s heart has been warmly embraced in the heart of Montpelier, in the heart of Vermont. And, at the heart of LNT’s mission is the telling of great Vermont stories. You can’t get much more Vermont than that. So, for its 30th Season closing production, Lost Nation Theater, in a bold and exciting venture, oh so proudly presents the world premiere staging of Howard Frank Mosher’s Vermont novel DISAPPEARANCES -- the first time ANY Mosher novel has been adapted for the stage on October 4th -21st.

LNT Founder (and native son) Kim Allen Bent's original stage adaptation is rambunctious storytelling with a twist. DISAPPEARANCES is a thrilling coming-of-age story, homage to old Vermont, and a tall tale with chases, narrow escapes, comedy, and ghosts all rolled into one. Desperate for money to keep his farm afloat in the winter of ‘32, Quebec Bill, head of his clan of hardy Vermonters, introduces his teen son to the other family trade - whiskey smuggling. It’s an epic journey through the wilderness with unforgettable characters and magical escapades.

The book was written in 1977 - the same year Kim founded Lost Nation Theater. And Kim, as you may or may not know, grew up on a dairy farm in Braintree VT.

On Friday October 5th, the DISAPPEARANCES OPENING GALA Celebrates National Life Group and Lost Nation Theater for “30 years of doing good and doing good theater.” These are two big hearts pumping life into our community! Come join us for a delicious pre-show reception at 6:30pm and live music with fiddler Adam Boyce and guest speakre Chris Graff. And after the show there is a party with the cast, desserts, and moonshine shots (non-alcoholic too)!

DISAPPEARANCES INFORMATION:
SHOWS: October 4th -21st. Thursdays thru Saturdays at 7:30PM; Sundays at 2PM.
OPENING NIGHT GALA on Friday October 5th starts at 6:30PM
TICKETS: www.lostnationtheater.org, or call 802-229-0492, or at the door.

Fabric of Emancipation

Fabric of Emancipation

Curated by Harlem Needle Arts founder and director Michelle Bishop, this special exhibit features pieces by eight contemporary textile artists from New York, Massachusetts, Philadelphia, New Jersey and Indianapolis. The works share and are defined by some element of thread construction, but are diverse in presentation, including quilting, embroidery, mixed media, costume, and fiber fusion. Each work speaks to the artist’s view of the African Diaspora and his or her own personal interpretation of historic and contemporary events.

DOUGHBOYS AND FLYBOYS WWI Stories by Vermonters From the Home and Battlefront

DOUGHBOYS AND FLYBOYS WWI Stories by Vermonters From the Home and Battlefront

November 11, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War One. The Sheldon Museum has combed its collection and archives along with the help of Addison County private collections to mount an exhibit that features roles played by Vermonters in what was called the “War to End All Wars.” The exhibit concentrates on Vermont’s Addison County residents who were in the service during WWI.

Central to the exhibit are the histories, memorabilia, photographs, and letters of three Middlebury residents: Jacob J. Ross, M.D., who served as Flight Surgeon in France with the 17th Aero Squadron caring for the sick and wounded; Waldo Heinrichs, a pilot with the 95th Aero Squadron, known then as “luckiest man in the war” for surviving two plane crashes and internment in a German hospital; Werner Neuse, a German by birth, who enlisted in the German army as a teenager shortly after his father, Richard Neuse, also a German soldier was killed. Werner Neuse later immigrated to the United State, became a citizen, earned his graduate degrees and joined the faculty of Middlebury College German Department and helped to start the College’s German summer language school. After the war Neuse and Heinrichs lived on the same block of South Street in Middlebury, while Ross established his home and office on College Street.

Their stories and those of others from Addison County are featured in the exhibit, as are colorful recruitment and war advocacy posters from the Sheldon’s Research Center Archives, together with WWI uniforms, helmets, armaments, books, and first-hand accounts.

The exhibit culminates with "In Flanders Field," an eloquent, provocative art installation by internationally-recognized artist Fran Bull of Brandon, Vermont. Based on the WWI poem by Colonel John McCrae, who taught pathology at the University of Vermont’s Medical School before the war, Fran Bull reimagines the verses as visual art. Her points of departure are the skies with singing birds, fields of red poppies and white crosses, and the lamentations of corpses. Larks become bomber planes, crosses and coffins morph into formal grids. Flowers and blood-red rags stand for lost treasures and remembrance.

Waterfowl Wonders And Amusing Animals By Three Self-Taught Addison County, Vermont Carvers

Waterfowl Wonders And Amusing Animals By Three Self-Taught Addison County, Vermont Carvers

"Waterfowl Wonders and Amusing Animals by Three Self-taught Addison County, Vermont carvers – Gary Starr, Chuck Herrmann, and William Holway - greet delighted visitors to the Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury, Vermont.

Gary Starr is a world-class self-taught carver whose decorative decoys and birds are on display at the Sheldon – from three magnificent oversized shore birds – one standing, a second running, and a third feeding – to a variety of life-sized colorful birds including a Puffin, American Oyster Catcher, Belted King Fisher, Baltimore Oriole, and Lilac Breasted Roller.

Before perfecting his drawing, Bill Holway began his artistic pursuits by whittling and was one of the original craftsmen when Frog Hollow the Vermont State Craft Center was started in Middlebury in 1971. For years, Bill Holway was known locally for his “performance drawings” at Kennedy Brothers in Vergennes. His wood carvings at the Sheldon feature a moose with an iconic rack of antlers and a prominent beard-like dewlap under its chin, a brown bear, a frolicking horse, and more exotic animals such as long-horned goat, hippopotamus, elephant, zebra, camel, and giraffes.

Chuck Herrmann's carvings are a reflection of his deep commitment to the Vermont forest, its history and value. As an example, true to his investigative and collecting habits, he carved birds and waterfowl from remnants of a “root fence” that was once located on a farm field at New Haven Junction at the intersection of Routes 7 and 17.

Gerald Auten: Graphite Insomnia

Gerald Auten: Graphite Insomnia

Gerald Auten uses powdered graphite or graphite pencils on dense, smooth hot-pressed paper or onto the back of old museum posters and postcards. To the powdered graphite, he adds a bonding element, WD40, turpentine, or linseed oil, often buffing the surface. The work takes many months to achieve the dense metallic, oily surfaces. The affect is luminous, deeply saturated, mysterious and mischievous.
