Arts Alive series explores Brattleboro arts, artists

BRATTLEBORO — Arts Alive is bringing together several Brattleboro arts organizations to enrich the lives of local artists. This is part of a series for creatives to network and explore artistic resources.

On Saturday, April 29, at 10 a.m., Arts Alive invites the artist community to gather at Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts on Main Street for the next field trip. Gallery owner Petria Mitchell will introduce the business, including its history, programming, and available resources.

Attendees will also hear from representatives from nearby creative businesses and organizations. These include First Proof Press, Epsilon Spires, Harmony Collective Artist Gallery, HatchSpace, the In-sight Photography Project, the Vermont Center for Photography, and the Wheelhouse Clay Center.

From noon to 1 p.m., First Proof Press will facilitate a greeting card printmaking activity for a limited number of registrants.

During the event, participants will also have the chance to network over coffee, tea, and pastries, provided by Prime Roast Coffee Company in Keene, New Hampshire. For this particular event, other homemade snacks will be served as well.
