The T. W. Wood Gallery at 46 Barre St in Montpelier, Vermont at the Center for Arts and Learning is pleased to announce the opening of “Close to the Cloth”, a textile exhibit featuring the work of Barbara Bendix, Karen Henderson, Stephanie Krauss, Skye Livingston, Kate Ruddle and Neysa Russo. The Gallery has assembled a varied group of Vermont fiber artists that showcase a range of techniques and sensibilities toward textiles. The work ranges from pieces seated firmly in traditional craft to conceptual work that uses fiber as a vehicle, and work that straddles the divide. “Close to the Cloth” will be on view in the Group Exhibitions Hall.
There will be an opening reception on Thursday March 7th from 5:00-7:00pm.
Demo Day – Saturday - March 23rd – 1-3pm.
Artists will talk about their work and share textile techniques from their work. This is an eclectic group of textile artists, so the techniques will cover an interesting array of techniques.

What happened in Vermont when the anti-Communist fear known as the “Red Scare” swept the country? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Rick Winston explores some forgotten history as we see how a small, rural “rock-ribbed Republican” state with a historically libertarian streak handled the hysteria of the time. Far from the klieg lights of Washington D.C., Hollywood, and New York City, there were several fascinating stories in the Green Mountains: a high-profile academic firing, a conservative senator who helped take down Joseph McCarthy, controversies involving left-leaning summer residents, and some veteran newspaper editors who spoke out against McCarthy’s tactics. Now, as our country again experiences a political atmosphere charged with intolerance, condemnation, and widespread falsehoods, this book could not be more timely.
