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.

Original dance-theater created by campers ages 9 & up and director/choreographer Taryn Noelle. Inspired by the silent films of George Méliès - pioneering film-maker, illusionist, "grandfather of science fiction”, and special effects . . . and the inspiration for Martin Scorsese's 2011 blockbuster "Hugo”- nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winner of 5.
Noted actor-singer-dancer-choreographer Taryn Noelle (winner of the 2017 Vermont Arts Councils Governor’s Excellence Award in Arts Education.) will teach modern dance styles, physical improv, and theater games, with an emphasis on the shared skills and emotional availability required for theater & modern dance.
In addition to dance & acting, campers will learn about creating live sound effects & soundscapes to create the world of the play.
Extra challenging roles available for more experienced students. Younger students, with experience, may apply to join this workshop via an interview with artistic directors.
