Call for Artists: Inspired by Maddie

The Gallery at Phoenix Books Essex is now seeking artists for our Open Studio Weekend exhibit, "Inspired by Maddie." 

In 2011, Theron Humphrey decided to traverse the US, meeting and photographing someone new each day. Maddie the Coonhound rides shotgun—and has a special talent, an uncanny sense of balance. The blog and upcoming book Maddie on Things record their adventures. Our exhibit will feature photographs by Theron, as well as work by local artists and community members.

Do you have an image of a dog, cat, or other pet on things? Let us know! Need inspiration? Visit maddieonthings.com. Contact colleen@phoenixbooks.biz for details.

Poker Hill Arts Art Show Reception (Screen Free Week at Phoenix Books Essex)

Join us to celebrate the work of young artists from Poker Hill Arts!  This event is free and open to the public, and everyone is invited.

Poker Hill Arts is an after school art program and summer day camp conceived and run by Chris Gluck in Underhill, Vermont. Each school day, about 20 energetic, fun-loving kids, ages 5-12, come pouring off the bus at Chris's home studio for an afternoon of art or crafts. After some outdoor time and a snack, they usually have a calming, centering activity, such as yoga. Then comes the project of the day, which might include drawing, painting, sculpting, engineering, and/or crafting. When finished with the day's project, the children have the opportunity to draw in their sketchbooks or choose from other creative activities with their friends.

 

Screen-Free Week is a national celebration when children, families, schools, and communities spend seven days turning off entertainment screen media and turning ON life!  It's time to unplug and play, read, create, garden, explore nature, and spend time with family and friends.

We'll cover solar from A to Z including why it works in Vermont, state policy, tax credits, financing options, leasing versus owning, and how to design the best system for your home. We hope you'll join us and bring all of your questions!

SunCommon is a mission-driven company working to help homeowners in Vermont go solar.

Some tea parties are for grown-ups.
Some are for girls.
But this tea party is for a very special guest.
And it is important to follow some rules . . .
like providing comfortable chairs,
and good conversation,
and yummy food.
But sometimes that is not enough for special guests,
especially when their manners are more Cretaceous than gracious . . .

Introducing Tea Rex, a guest that just about any child would love to have to tea!

My Animal, My Self: A Breakthrough Way to Understand How You and Your Animal Reflect Each Other Cover Image

Many devoted animal lovers are baffled by a bad
behavior in their companion animal. These field-tested techniques for
understanding and improving such behaviors look both at the animal and
at their human companion. The reason? Animals can mirror the people they
live with physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually -- in both
positive and negative ways. The companion animal of a human with a
serious illness or dysfunctional behavior may take the same on in an
effort to help. But animals are also active participants in their own
lives and may be offering less mirroring and more teaching by their
behavior. Marta Williams, informed by her own decades of work and her
interviews with veterinarians, animal behavior specialists, and
trainers, teaches readers to actively communicate with their animal
companions -- through mirroring, empathy, psychodrama, and other
techniques. Each chapter includes real world examples and hands-on
activities and exercises that heal both animal and human.
