What do a woodworker, a farmer, a communications specialist, and a teacher all have in common? A passion for making art in the heart of the Green Mountains. The Corner School Resource Center of Granville, Vermont, presents Made in the Mountains, an exhibition that shines a light on local artists.
Chosen from a pool of creators in a 25-mile radius around Granville, the show features photographers Phil Bobrow, Waitsfield, Samantha Sheehan, Hancock, and Clayton Anderson and Melissa Kosmaczewski, Granville; mixed media works by Johno Landsman, Waitsfield, and Meg Reinhold, Granville; and watercolors by celebrated naturalist and author, Clare Walker Leslie, Granville and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
“Our hope is that this gallery not only showcases the talented people within these small valleys, but also inspires more to try things on and find the enjoyment of artful expression within themselves,” said Clayton Anderson who organized the exhibit.
The event kicks off several weeks of activity at the Corner School, a renovated one-room schoolhouse located at 75 Post Office Road in Granville. Future community builders include a story hour for children on Sunday, September 24, and the screening of a new, short documentary film by Kate Stauss celebrating Granville’s hill farms on Sunday, October 15.
The opening celebration for Made in the Mountains is 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 10, and includes live music by Granville Daze. The exhibit will be open to the public on weekends through October. 15. Check the Corner School website, www.cornerschoolvt.org, for specific hours.
