  3. Awakenings Current Work by Kate Longmaid and Tom Merwin

    May 24, 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.

  15. Climate Change Comes to Central Vermont with meteorologist Roger Hill

    May 30, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Unitarian Church of Montpelier

    Roger Hill is a local meteorologist featured on WDEV and his blog Weathering Heights. Roger’s main job is to provide guidance to Vermont utilities on where to expect the worst storm events so they can pre-position crews and equipment. This effort has led him into a deeper investigation on the role of climate change on our future weather. He now has a pretty solid knowledge of what this will mean for Vermont. Climate change raises many questions — What do the extreme rain events mean for flooding and the resulting storm water? What does draught mean for our summer water usage? Will we ever see fall foliage color again? How will the weather affect the economy — tourism and local agriculture? There will be a discussion after the talk to brainstorm on how our community can adapt to the changes that are coming. Space is limited.
