Contain-Her Opening at Helen Day Art Center in Stowe VT Tonight

I spent two months last fall at Penland School of Crafts in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. During my time there I worked on my Contain-Her Collection of hand-built clay pieces. The work at resemble containers of different sized and shapes. As a child of the Sixties I have spent a great portion of my life struggling against the conventions that tried to restrain me and women of my generation and beyond. Come by the Helen Day Art Center tonight to celebrate with me sixty-five years in which life has tried (and failed) to Contain-Her. Opening starts at 5PM, I will be speaking at 5:30, the opening ends at 7PM.

I hope to see you there!

What's happening at the Stowe Mountain Resort this Summer?

Most people don't think to head up to the Mountain during the summer months, but the Stowe Mountain Resort offers plenty of summer fun! Kids will enjoy sliding down Spruce Peak on the Alpine Slide and bouncing on massive trampolines. Fridays offer a diverse framers market from locally grown food to a variety of crafts. The Stowe Mountain Farmers market is open this Friday the 20th of August from 11-3PM on the Spruce Peak Plaza. For more info on the Farmers Market click here.

Let's also not forget the world class spa for those rainy days. If you are lucky one of those rainy days will fall on a Friday afternoon between 5-7PM, where you can enjoy a hand or foot treatment along with cheese and wine for a mere $20. No appointment necessary, what a deal! For more information about this special Stowe Mountain Spa Treatment click here.
