EXHIBITS

Through October 30: Sumi-e Meditations. Sumi-e Meditations, an exhibit of paintings by Ronda Stoll, will be on exhibit at the Morrisville Post Office. Stoll was drawn to the simplicity and meditative aspects when she began oriental brush painting over 20 years ago. Oriental painting is a direct embodiment of the union of artistic expression and stillness. From grinding the ink stick on the ink stone to putting the brush to the rice paper, it is the manifestation of stillness in the breath. With each exhale the bamboo comes to life on the paper and what emerges is accepted with no retouching. The simplicity of black ink on white paper and the emergent form is a source of peace and joy for Stoll. The Morrisville Post Office is located at 16 Portland Street, open Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm and Saturday 9am-12pm. Questions may be addressed to Heidi at (802) 888-1261 or Heidi@RiverArtsVT.org. For more information call (802) 888-1261 or visit their website at www.riverartsvt.org.
