Festival & Events

  1. The Paletteers of Vermont

    Reception: Saturday August 10th, 10:30am – 12pm Coffee and morning snacks will be served. Join us for art and coffee after the Farmer’s Market! All shows are free and open to the public. Leslie Bell founded the Paletteers in Barre, Vermont in 1957. Initially, the Paletteers held extremely popular annual summer art shows and hundreds attended. Like current “pop-up” events; artwork was displayed outside in Barre City Park on a snow fence. Exhibitors had to break down the show each evening and reassemble it in the morning. Artists scrambled to protect their art whenever it started to rain. Since the 1981, the Paletteers have exhibited at select Barre and Montpelier indoor exhibition venues. Many outstanding local artists have been Paletteers members through the years and the T.W. Wood Gallery is pleased to be a part of the Paletteers tradition.

  3. Concert: Sessa (Sao Paulo, Brazil) & The Dead Shakers @ The Garage Cultural Center

    August 28, 2019, 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM @ The Garage Cultural Center

    Daydream Nation Productions is thrilled to present SESSA (Sao Paulo, Brazil) with The Dead Shakers Sessa is a long-time fixture of the American and Brazilian music scenes known for his collaborations with Yonatan Gat and co-founding acclaimed psych-rock group Garotas Suecas. Sessa's debut album Grandeza points to new, more subtle directions for Brazilian pop—a deep, minimalist, almost insinuated use of the rich textures and rhythms that define the songwriting history of Brazil, which Sessa now joins as one of its most promising new voices. Sessa’s songs are sung in Portuguese, with visceral, sensual lyrics. The music gets a deliberate minimalist treatment rarely found in contemporary Brazilian music, more reminiscent of the bareness of Leonard Cohen, with touches of tropicália, and a collaboration with the group Música de Selvagem that permeates the album with elements of spiritual and free jazz.
