    Compass Music and Arts Center, Jones Drive, Brandon, VT, United States

    Compass Music and Arts Center, Jones Drive, Brandon, VT, United States

    Following a ten year period designing for Hallmark, Belmont artist Stephanie Stouffer had a 35 year career as a freelance artist. She designed more than 1,500 original gouache paintings used for licensing by companies like Caspari, Certified International, and Peking Handicrafts.

    With a personal, first-hand experience of truly earning a living as a freelance artist, Stouffer will give a Gallery Talk at the Compass Music and Arts Center, as part of her current exhibit ‘The Creative World of Stephanie Stouffer’, on Sunday, October 2 at 2:00pm. The artist will share both the creative compromises and rewards of a freelance career in licensing, acknowledging the role her time with Hallmark took in preparing her for her chosen path. She will discuss the demands and frustrations of staying ‘on top’ of the market, of staying creatively fresh and innovative while meeting the commercial interests and time demands of manufacturers, but also why she feels her work proved to be so appealing and successful.   

    The Compass Music and Arts Center is located in Park Village at 333 Jones Dr. Brandon VT, 05733 (Park Village used to be the Brandon Training School, located 1.5 miles north of downtown Brandon off of Arnold District Rd.). www.cmacvt.org

    The fee for members of the public to participate is $5 per person. The artwork made is donated to the studio, where students dry, fire, glaze and re-fire the pieces to sell at JSC’s annual Holiday Ceramics Sale, which will be Nov. 16.

    Proceeds will go to Operation Smile, an organization that provides free surgery for children born with a cleft palate.

    Over the years, JSC has donated enough money to Operation Smile for 47 facial reconstructive surgeries, in addition to handmade quilts and hospital gowns. In recent years, the college’s donation has been matched by various corporations.

    The ceramics sale also has raised money for other organizations, including Vermont CARES and the Clarina Howard Nichols Center.
