Maxfield Parrish was one of the first NVAA artists, and over the decades many important regional artists such as Francis Colburn, Roy Kennedy, Ruth Mould, and Stan Marc Wright have been members. Membership is open to all Northern Vermont visual artists, working in any media.
Reception: October 3rd, 5:00 – 7:00pm

Rev. Daniel “Elder” Field (1805-1883) was born in Springfield, Vermont. He was “called” to become an itinerant Methodist minister, serving various communities throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York State. Rev. Field retired from the full-time ministry in 1863 to a small farm in Williamstown, Vermont, where he spent the remainder of his life, occasionally filling in at local churches as a “supply” minister. It was during this time that many stories about “Elder” Field, as he was known, began to accumulate, showing his droll, wise, and sometimes eccentric ways. Adam Boyce relates stories handed down from his family and other sources about the pithy parson. Third Thursday talks are free & open to everyone.

After a lifetime investigating, Susan Wahlrab and Chris Miller are each in own their unique way, leaping off the mountain of experience to UnCharted waters. Challenging materials, subject matter and presentation. Deep breath - Jump!
Susan brings a depth to her watercolor that is absolutely breathtaking and Chris Miller's (recently completed the Ceres sculpture on The State House) new work combines exotic wood and resin in a fascinating pairing.

Science has now documented what the ancients have always known, that tapping into exploring the creative process supports us on all levels of body, mind and spirit. This workshop is all about connecting to the universal field of nature by observing the intricacies of color. Participants will be guided to reproduce each hue and value to create a unique mosaic of life. Truly transformational for all levels of experience from novice to professional as the process drops you into a more present, conscious awareness. Not to mention just plain FUN! This class draws from Susi’s lifetime of connecting to the nuance of life as professional artist, certified Flower Essence practitioner and advanced Yoga and Ayurvedic instructor. For 15 years as a professor teaching at Brown University, Framingham State College and Maine College of Art a version of Color of Nature was a final assignment in a foundation color and design course.

In 1938, Sergeant-at-Arms Dwight Dwinell carved a statue of the Roman goddess of agriculture to adorn the dome of the Vermont State House. For 80 years, the statue, now known as Ceres II, stood watch over our Capitol before being replaced in 2018. Join the Vermont Historical Society (VHS) in welcoming her to her new home at the Vermont History Museum, where she will serve as the centerpiece of our newest exhibit, “Lady of the Hills”.
Remnants of Larkin Mead’s original 1859 statue, carving tools donated by Dwight Dwinell’s family, as well as period photography will now be on display, along with the head of Ceres II. The body of the statue will join the exhibit once its conservation & stabilization is complete.
VHS will also unveil our new donor recognition wall and share even more updates to our "Freedom & Unity" exhibit. A special thanks to the Pizzagalli Foundation, the Farm Families of Cabot Creamery Co-operative, and the State of Vermont for making this exhibit possible.
