1st floor Merrill Community Room - Colleen Murphy: mixed media on panel
Murphy works in mixed media—primarily acrylic paint and collage—on both canvas and wood panels. The collage elements may appear as photographic, textural, or patterned images and shapes. She has explored a variety of themes over many years, but the overarching themes are architecture, interiors, and landscapes. They are all environments she is attracted to, both external and internal. Occasionally, there is a narrative she wants to communicate or a feeling she wants to express. Most times she follows her intuition as best she can, rather than overthink her process.
2nd Floor South Gallery - Mike Sipe: Photographs
The Lake Champlain region is Sipe’s unparalleled muse; the beauty of the lake, skies, mountains, valley and the people enjoying its splendor. He doesn’t have to travel the world to find world-class beauty; it is here, in his own back yard. His ability to find the area's essence is evolving and it is exhilarating to him. He loves to capture vistas with just the right light accenting a center of interest, the effects of natural elements and motion, and when he finds a wide tonal range, the elegant impression of black and white. Sipe’s objective is to use natural light in capturing images, by being in the right place at the right time with the right equipment, evoking a magical light and an interesting confluence of elements. His goal is to offer carefully selected prints to an audience that is also captivated by the beauty of the region and the exquisiteness just outside our doorsteps.

Community Gallery (Front Foyer): VT Arts & Crafts, Luciana McAllister - Hi, my name is Luciana and I am the creator behind VT Arts & Crafts. I live in Shelburne, Vermont with my husband and daughter. I love to use a plethora of colors and textures to create movement in my weavings! I source the majority of my materials from other small, women owned businesses. When you purchase my art, you are not just supporting me, you are supporting so many other makers and artists! This also means that I often use hand or indie dyed yarns and Hand spun Art yarns that are unique and often one of a kind pieces of art in their own right.
Garden Orb Collection - For this collection, I wanted to capture the feeling of being surrounded by lush colorful gardens that will never wilt. Whether you are a gardening enthusiast or not blessed with a green thumb, my Garden Orb Collection will bring Springtime to any space in any season.
Beaded Collection - For the Beaded Collection, I used different kinds of beads to accentuate the movement and flow of the wool…and of course to add a little sparkle! Each bead was meticulously placed to fit into the overall aesthetic of each weaving, creating an abstract feast for the eyes.
Community Gallery (Hallway): Landa Townsend – Environmental Artist "Dragonfly Habitat at the Edges of Weatherhead Hollow Pond: 2021-2023"
This collection of prints is the result of two summers of research and observations of dragonfly flight patterns and behaviors, primarily focusing on the Libellula lydia, Libellula luctuosa, and Libellula putchella populations at Weatherhead Hollow Pond in Guilford, VT.
After attending sustainable, non-toxic printmaking workshops at the Two Rivers Printmaking Studio in White River Junction, Vermont, Townsend proceeded to create a series of abstract images representing this ecosystem. These woodblock prints vividly depict the dragonfly behaviors and environment of this vital and delicate ecosystem, while exploring Japanese woodblock techniques that prioritize non-toxic and sustainable methods.
This project was made possible by an Artist Development Grant, 2021-22, with funding support from the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
