Richard Moore: Urban Revision

Friday Jan 6th 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm
@ The Front

Bright light in a cold time Richard Moore’s solo show at The Front in Montpelier, “Urban Revision,” features inkjet photographic prints on birchbark. The medium of birchbark—fragile, ephemeral, and textural—revises the planar photographic image, and how we might see our home places. “Sometimes it is like looking into the future," said Daryl Burtnett, another artist in the cooperative gallery, "with our familiar places aging and the natural world taking over. These tangible images change the way we see the world.” The show opens 4-7pm, January 6. The Front will be open Fridays 4-7, weekends 11-5, and by appointment through the month of January. There will also be an artist’s talk in the gallery January 12, 6.30-7.30, and a poetry reading with local guest poets January 19, 6.30-7.30. The Front is cooperatively owned and managed by its artist-members. We're at 6 Barre Street here in Montpelier. For more information, visit https://www.thefrontvt.com or email [email protected]rontvt.com. Richard Moore has been a member since 2020; he lives in Burlington since relocating from New Hampshire.

How Do I Know When It’s Time? Mobility, Dementia, and Quality-of-Life Assessment for Elderly Pets

Saturday Jan 21st 10:30 am to 12:00 pm
@ Kellogg-Hubbard Library

Having trouble getting around and being confused are the most common problems affecting comfort and happiness for aging dogs and cats. But pet caregivers don’t always know how to understand what’s happening, or what we can do about it. This talk will help! We’ll also learn to work with the JOURNEYS quality of life scale, a helpful tool to approach the difficult question that’s on everyone’s mind at this life stage—but it’s so hard to go there. You are not alone; we’ll go there together, and the tears will be leavened with humor and love. A veterinarian in the Montpelier area since 2002, Dr. Erika Bruner currently focuses on improving quality of life for elderly animals and their caregivers. She is a certified veterinary acupuncturist and makes housecalls for end-of-life consultations and euthanasia throughout central Vermont. This is a free, in-person program at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
