Round & Around at Studio Place Arts

I'm really delighted by circles and disks, and I've wanted to curate an exhibit featuring them for many years. I finally got my chance at Studio Place Arts, and I'm VERY pleased with the results!

There are three installations -- one by Beth Miller featuring goldenrod galls in the center of the gallery, and one by Kristen M. Watson that you can see peeking out behind the hanging wall on the right.

And looking toward the front of the gallery, we see Pamela Wilson's floor installation of a grid of porcelain and salt-and-flour dough disks.

The opening reception is at Studio Place Arts this Saturday, February 4, from 3-5 PM.

Walk the Long Trail at Berlin Mall

And here's another cool project at Berlin Mall I've been working on:
From January 14-April 22, 2017, the Berlin Mall welcomes walkers to experience an indoor version of the Long Trail, and help raise funds for the Green Mountain Club - mall owners are donating funds to support The Long Trail, based on the number of miles logged by registered walkers. Walk a Division or two or three, or walk the entire trail.
You can register here to start walking the 272 miles of the Trail!

The Main Entrance welcomes visitors to the project

and inside, a scrapbook of photos related to each of the Trail's 12 divisions covers one row of windows all the way down the length of the wall, with blow-up signs for each of the divisions where walkers who have finished that division have their name or"walking handle" listed. It's really neat to see people chugging up and down the hall and logging miles while it's cold and snowy outside!

As you look out through the windows, the parking lot disappears, and what you see is the snowy ground and the trees and sky above. Pretty appealing!
