Local artist chosen to promote history expo

BARRE — Each Vermont History Expo has featured a Vermont artist. For Expo 2014, the Vermont Historical Society has chosen Anne Cady of New Haven. Her painting titled “Thanks for Helping” will be used as the signature artwork for Expo. Using art to represent Vermont History Expo is especially fitting this year, given that the Expo theme is “Artists and Artisans: Vermont’s Creative Heritage.”
Using the artist’s work for promotional posters and other publicity, the Vermont Historical Society emphasizes collaboration with local artists and artisans throughout the state to highlight Vermont’s rich heritage. Although Vermont landscapes are typically traditional with fairly monochromatic palettes using iconic barn reds and clapboard whites, Anne Cady’s Vermont has vibrant color and her hills are wavelike and unending, yet still recognizable as our state. Her inventive work has been featured in Seven Days and the Wall Street Journal.
Before her career as a full-time painter, Cady was an art educator who founded and directed The Children’s Art School for many years. More on her work is online at www.annecady.com.
The Vermont History Expo will take place at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds June 21 and 22, 2014, featuring over 150 local historical societies, museums and heritage organizations, as well as musicians, authors, genealogists, crafters and other talented professionals. The History Expo weekend is filled with parades, presentations, heritage animals, re-enactments, performances and demonstrations. It is held every other year.
