ON THE FLY
a visual art exhibition celebrating the art of fly fishing
APRIL 11- May 17
Curated by Clark Amadon and Monica Callan
Proceeds benefit art scholarships for youth in local schools
Featuring artwork by regional artists:
Larry Antonuk Samantha Aronson, Jeb Bouchard, Kristian Brevik, Kurt Budliger, Nancy Daigle, Marnie DeFreest, Matt Hart, Janice Kenyon, Judd Levine, Rachel Laudon, Nick Mayer, Shannon Morrison, Tisa Rennau, John Snell, Lisa Therrien, Tyler Vendetouli, and Susan Winter.
This month-long celebration is an Across Roads Center for the Arts fundraising effort for future community arts programming, and their two annual scholarships: the Mitch Siegel Emerging Artist Award, benefiting a high school graduating senior pursuing the arts beyond Harwood Union; and the Janet DiBlasi Arts-In-Curriculum Award which provides a teacher at either Thatcher Brook Primary or Crossett Brook Middle School with funds to enhance learning by incorporating the arts into their core classroom lesson plans.
In addition to the month-long display, the “On The Fly” exhibition will include an art opening April 11 from 5-7pm to celebrate the artists, their work, and fly fishing in the northeast. On Saturday, May 4 and Saturday May 11, 10-12noon each day, Rachel Sargent, an exhibiting artist, will be conducting a nature journaling workshop on the shores of the Waterbury Reservoir. The evening of May 11, 5-8pm, Across Roads invites the community to come to an Iron Fly “Competition,” where fly tying meets the “Iron Chef” and “competitors” are challenged to create an ultimate fish snack from the same set of mystery materials. Prizes will be awarded!
All events take place or begin at Across Roads Center for the Arts’ home, the Grange Hall Cultural Center, 317 Howard Avenue, Waterbury Center, Vermont.
