This event is part of Exploring Food in Your Backyard week, a collaboration between Rooted in Vermont, the Vermont Department of Libraries, and libraries across the state.
Did you know it is the International Year of the Salmon? It’s about time these extraordinary fish got their own year. Help celebrate by visiting the trail along the river at Volunteers Green during the month of September and appreciating the colorful salmon-shaped windsocks that are hanging along the full length of the trail. Besides their beautiful painted designs, each windsock features an original poem inspired by salmon, fish, rivers or nature in general. Windsocks and poems were created over the summer by area youth participating in workshops hosted jointly by the library and Radiate Art and sponsored by RiseVt. They will be on display along the river trail and at the library through October 5 when the Lake Champlain Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office will be hosting a salmon festival at the Volunteers Green and at the library. Learn more about what’s happening the day of the salmon festival.
After thirty years as a traditional quilter, many of them as a professional quilt restorer, Marya Lowe flung herself into the contemporary art quilt world. As a textile artist, she began by making pieces that reflected known entities: chickens, birds, birdhouses, fish, flowers. She quickly found herself dissolving the connection with realism and moving to purely abstract compositions which visualized mystery, questioning, pure emotion, and personal response. Come see her work on our walls and in the display case for the month of September.
