Spring Open Studio Weekend Reception (Essex)

Event date: 
Saturday, May 26, 2012 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Come meet the artists at our reception to celebrate the Vermont Crafts Council's Spring Open Studio Weekend at The Gallery at Phoenix books. Light fare provided. Reception is open to the public. Join us for a fun evening and check out some local talent.

Artists whose work is featured include:

Lucia Chiu
Lucia was born in China.  She started learning Chinese calligraphy from her father at an early age.  With the early good brush skill training, she later learned Chinese traditional painting from other artists.  The fundamental component of Chinese paintings is the line, as it is in Chinese calligraphy. Lucia now resides in South Burlington.


Carol Sullivan
Carol Sullivan’s exploration into photography began as a teenager. Photography allows her to combine her love of nature with her passion for artistic expression. Carol seeks the signs of the natural world in her surroundings, be they deep in a forest, along a country lane or in the vivid colors and simple beauty of fruits and vegetables. Carol’s work has been published in local magazines including Vermont Life.


Carol Truesdell
Carol J. Truesdell is a photo artist based in Underhill Center, Vermont. Carol’s
images begin as RAW digital photographs that are juxtaposed to create a new image- a photomontage - that is intended to look more painterly than photographic. All images are printed with archival ink on mould-made water color paper, designed to last over one hundred years.

In this show, Carol's images focus on Vermont scenes, architecture, portraits and whimsy. She's created a series of images to celebrate spring and summer, called “Flower Hats”. "I must confess that as a child I loved to dress my pets up in doll clothes," says Carol. "From this exhibit you can see that not much has changed except I’m now dressing them digitally."



Vermont Spring Open Studio Weekend is a statewide celebration of the visual arts and the creative process in which Vermont artists and craftspeople invite the public to visit them in their studios. The Vermont Crafts Council launched Open Studio Weekend in 1993 as a way to increase the visibility of artists and craftspeople in Vermont. The event's goal is to foster an appreciation for the creative process and the role that artists and craftspeople play in the vitality of Vermont's communities.
