Middlebury to host last Arts Walk of the season today

MIDDLEBURY — The 2014 Middlebury Arts Walk season finale will be held on Friday, Oct. 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. Middlebury Arts Walk is a free event (for artists, venues, and attendees) and is held the second Friday of the month from May to October. In many cases the art is on display all month long — not just that evening.
New Arts Walk Artists
The Middlebury Arts Walk committee endeavors to introduce new and different artists throughout the season. There are several artists who are first-time Arts Walk exhibitors this month:
•  Round Robin, Marble Works, will feature one-of-a-kind sewn creations made by Red Clover…SEW Vermont —theatrical costume designers MaryKay Dempewolff and Mim Zelis
•  American Flatbread, Marble Works, features abstract works of art by Middlebury resident Emilio Mozo. The pieces are based on his book of poetry “Hotel des Estrangers,” published in 2001.
•  Clay’s, 60 Main St., is host to Vermont native Cotey Gallagher who recently illustrated a series of children’s books depicting the beauty and activities of Vermont’s four seasons.
•  Helen Porter Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center, South Street, will feature the drawings and paintings of Frank Hier, a Helen Porter resident.
Artists’ Gallery Chat
One of Arts Walk’s new venues this season features Fiddle Hill Arts. The work of seven artists (N.C. Rowe, D. Pringle, C. Christensen, D. Hodges, C. Cantello, M. Hartline, and B. Brosnan) is on display at the office of John Chamberlain located at 221 Maple St. in the Marble Works, near Printer’s Alley (venue No. 29).
During this month’s event the office will host a reception for the seven Fiddle Hill artists revealing the tools and materials they use to make their art pieces. Brushes, milk paints, journals, value drawings, and works-in-progress are on display. Learn how they produced their finished works. The gallery is hung with watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings; Chinese ink drawings; photographs; collage books; and hand-colored prints.
These seven artists are women who have had other professional careers and yet made time to create art. For years they have met once a week in a kitchen in Sudbury to work together. Some have exhibited in the Jackson gallery, the Chaffee Gallery, and the Southern Vermont Arts Center and done book illustrations. The highlight of the show will be a free raffle at 6:30 p.m. giving away three pieces of art.
