Here is your chance to create an up-close-and-personal interview with the colors themselves! When we ask the right questions, we can watch their true colors come out from inside the Crayola Box and spring to life. We will become color biographers, and expose the quirky secret lives of the rainbow that the world has never seen (or touched, or smelled, or heard) before! And parents, this is for you too! Write alongside your kids and help them build their imaginary worlds. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Author Talk: The Fourth String: A Memoir of Sensei and Me by Janet Pocorobba

March 11, 7 pm

Two women-Two cultures-One music. The Fourth String explores the intense and unlikely relationship that grows between a Japanese master and an American student, both exiles from their own cultures who find refuge in the three strings of the Japanese shamisen. As they confront each other, and themselves, each learns what gives their life purpose and what belonging truly means. Part travelogue, part portrait, The Fourth String offers a rare glimpse into a relationship seldom seen today: its beauty, its dangers, its hidden and difficult pleasures.

When Women Were Furniture: How Three Female Botanists and Botanical Illustrators Defined the Odds

A presentation and discussion by artist and educator Binta Colley.

Thursday, March 14th, 7 pm.

The T. W. Wood Gallery, at 46 Barre St. Montpelier, Vermont in the Center for Arts and Learning, is pleased to announce a presentation and discussion with artist and educator Binta Colley. “When Women Were Furniture” explores the position of women in science between the 1600’s – 1800’s. Colley’s talk highlights a study of Mary Delaney, Maria Sibylla Merian, and Jeanne Baret; three female botanists/botanical illustrators who contributed to the field through their art, science and exploration of the flora and fauna of their time. These women defied the odds and were key in building the foundation of botanical and scientific illustration, despite social barriers placed in their paths.

Binta Colley had an exhibit this year that featured her botanical drawings and illustrations at Northern Vermont University. Colley recently completed a certificate in botanical illustration at The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.

The talk will take place in the Contemporary Gallery and feature the following women botanists and botanical Illustrators:

Mary Delaney (1700-1788) created over 1000 paper decoupage flowers, whose detail was so exact that they were studied by botanists of the time and are now housed in the Enlightment Exhibit at the British Museum.

Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) was a German naturalist and scientific illustrator who solved many mysteries surrounding the life cycle of butterflies. Her work helped to dispel the myth of spontaneous generation.

Jeanne Baret (ca 1720-1790) was a French peasant woman and mistress of the French botanist, Philibert Commerson. As his assistant, she was one of the first women to circumnavigate the globe, but had to do so disguised as a man by cutting her hair and binding her breasts.

$8 suggested donation per person.

Also view in the Contemporary Gallery will be an exhibit featuring paintings by Toby Bartles and Ray Brown, “Close to The Cloth” a Textile Exhibition in the Contemporary Hall, and T.W. Wood and WPA permanent collections.

Millions of Montshire visitors have benefited from Raiselis’ creativity, design skills, and expertise—and exploring the many exhibits he’s worked on through his career is a fantastic way to remember his legacy.
A gathering to memorialize Bob Raiselis will be held in the Montshire’s Porter Community Room from 11am to 1pm. Friends and family are welcome to remember Bob. All the exhibit galleries will be open throughout the day. Check www.montshire.org for the day’s programs and events.

VCFA MFA in Writing & Publishing Community Classes: What's Underneath: A Creative Nonfiction Writing Workshop

What’s Underneath: A Creative Nonfiction Writing Workshop
In this generative workshop, we’ll focus on creative nonfiction in its various forms. We’ll examine how most relatable narrators in nonfiction are often deeply flawed. It is this notion that connects us with the humanity in great writing. But it is also the idea of imperfection that can often be so difficult to write. We’ll talk about our vices and vulnerabilities and how they can be fuel for writing about true life.

Kathy and Steven’s Long Walk

Saturday, March 16 at 7pm
Adamant Community Club – Martin and Haggett Roads, Adamant

In the summer of 2018 Kathy and Steven Light (of the Fyre and Lightning Consort) walked the entire Camino de Santiago, over 500 miles. There are many Camino routes throughout Europe and the Camino Frances, which has been a pilgrim route for over 1,000 years, has become the most popular route to Santiago. Starting in France they climbed over the Pyrenees and continued west through the Basque country, the Rioja region, Leon e Castilla and Galicia to Santiago de Compostela and then on to Finisterre (“the end of the world”) on the Atlantic coast. They will show photos and videos, talk about their experiences and play medieval and traditional music from the Camino on their newly acquired Galician bagpipes and harp, lute, guitar, recorders, whistle, clarinet and more.

Suggested donation: $10, kids under 12 free. Proceeds will go to support the Adamant Community Club. Refreshments available.

A boy (Harold Lloyd) moves to New York City to make enough money to support his loving girlfriend (Mildred Davis), but soon discovers that making it in the big city is harder than it looks. When he hears that a store manager will pay $1,000 to anyone who can draw people to his store, he convinces his friend, the “human fly,” (Bill Strother) to climb the building and split the profit with him. But when his pal gets in trouble with the law, he must complete the crazy stunt on his own.

Featuring live accompaniment with maestro Bob Merrill —back by popular demand—on HCA’s Steinway.
