Gallery Walk ’22

December 2, 5:00-9:00

Pop into Mocha Joe’s Cafe for their new exhibit by Axis. They will present a series of mixed media drawings focusing on themes of connection and absence.   overwhelming, elusive, or vulnerable.

Mitchell-Giddings will show Liz Chalfin’s new work. “In 2020 I decided to stop consuming more resources for my art and made a commitment to reuse and upcycle as much material as possible into new work. Much like life during these last two years, I’m learning to work within constraints and finding new joy and freedom in the process.”

Vermont Artisan Designs presents a juried show from the Vermont Pastel Society. For the first time there will be work from more than 100 members from around New England in the gallery!

With more than 200 volunteers, over 300,000 meals and many many pounds of Vermont produce and products the Everyone Eats continues to serve!

Statewide the many partnerships have generated over $22 million in revenue for Vermont restaurants who in turn have made prepared close to 3 million nourishing meals highlighting ingredients from VT farmers and food producers for neighbors experiencing food insecurity. This program is only possible because of the countless individuals who have stepped forward to help one another in times of need.
