CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Friday, September
BELLOWS FALLS 3rd Friday Gallery Night - Claire Adams: "Painting with Light" - Celebrate in the Outdoor Tent and Gallery with the Artist: Adams' most recent work uses the traditional techniques of reverse painting, enameling, and staining glass to depict a detailed view of the cycle of natural life on the farm and in the garden. Painted and stained entirely by the artist, artworks such as "Sunflower and Crickets" and "Dalias & Bees" use traditional materials and methods like silver stain, and the grisaille technique in which black paint is scratched away and color is applied on top. Starting with recycled window glass, this process requires numerous firings in Adam's solar powered kiln, and uses modern, nontoxic enamel formulas. Each artwork is composed of many of these hand-painted and stained pieces of glass soldered together in patterns inspired by quilts and are beautiful on a wall or in a window. 5-7 p.m. Join us on this 3rd Friday Gallery Night to celebrate in our Outdoor Art Tent and in the Gallery. 6 p.m: Meet Adams and watch the live Artist Talk. "My patterns have been inspired by American quilts. I have been looking at traditional styles as well as the stunning asymmetrical styles of African American quilts. To me each piece feels like a prayer. An earth prayer collecting light energy for healing and renewal!".

Being on the streets together raises our spirits, breaks isolation, helps build a network of people who want to do this work.". 5 p.m. weekly on Fridays. "Brattleboro Solidarity, Root Social Justice Center, Lost River Racial Justice, Tenants Union of Brattleboro came together last summer during Black Lives Matter uprisings followed by 350 Brattleboro, VT Debt Collective, Youth 4 Change, Out in the Open.
