Woodcut artist Mary Azarian's style is unique and instantly recognizable to many in our region.  She carves a single wood block with a scene and then paints the colors in by hand.  Her work often depicts Vermont, and life near her home in Calais.  Mary Azarian joins us to talk about her work, the craft of woodcut printing, and some of her famous works, including illustrations for the children's book, Snowflake Bentley.

Also, we bring you an interview with East Corinth resident Laura Waterman.  She recently talked with Steve Paulson, of the radio program "To the Best of Our Knowledge" about her husband's decision to commit suicide.  In 2000, he climbed to the top of a mountain and froze to death, and she knew his decision ahead of time.  She wrote a memoir about her experience called "Losing the Garden: The Story of a Marriage. Listen"

Also in the program, our series about "Art of Action" continues. The project highlights the people of Vermont and the state's working landscape and its natural beauty.  We hear from artist Curtis Hale of Danville who has created a series of paintings of Vermont bridges. Listen
