  2. Awakenings Current Work by Kate Longmaid and Tom Merwin

    May 22, 2019, 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

    The T. W. Wood Gallery at 46 Barre St in the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, Vermont is pleased to announce Awakenings; an exhibit featuring current work by Kate Longmaid and Tom Merwin. The T.W. Wood Gallery is honored to have their work at the gallery. Through a contemporary approach to portraiture and still life, Kate Longmaid explores what is revealed in the intimate moments of seeing. With still life, Longmaid is drawn to subject matter that is ephemeral. Captured in fleeting moments, these paintings reflect on the transient nature and beauty of life. Tom Merwin's painting process expresses a layering of symbol and spirituality, using nature as a doorway to the expression of existential concerns. Traveling the trails through the Kittatiny, Catskill and Green Mountains have been a continued influence and resource for Merwin.

  3. Film Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai and discussion with Shawn White, Project Manager at Friends of the Winooski River

    May 22, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Kellogg-Hubbard Library, Hayes Room

    How do trees affect rain, rivers, soil quality, nutrition, climate and peace? Planting trees for fuel, shade, and food is not something that anyone would imagine as the first step toward winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But this is how Wangari Maathai won in 2004, by leading thousands of women in the Green Belt Movement of Kenya. These women planted 35 million trees, reclaimed their country’s land from a century of deforestation, and enabled families to feed their children healthier food. Join Shawn White for a viewing of the film, followed by a discussion about how planting trees in Montpelier can improve our rivers, soil quality and climate.
