Our Art Hounds this week are:
Rob Hunter of Frog Hollow and the Vermont State Crafts Center. Rob recommends Pecha Kucha night at the Fleming Museum in Burlington. It gives a number of artists the opportunity to display their work. Pecha Kucha comes from the Japanese word for 'chit chat'. Rob loved the experience so much, he has brought it to his own community of Monkton. Watch for Pecha Kucha nights at the Fleming Museum.
Vermont artist Woody Jackson recommends a trip to the Edge Water Gallery on the falls in Middlebury to see Jill Madden's work. Madden paints "beautiful landscapes in the woods, in the orchards... it's very lyrical... beautiful work." Madden is the featured artist for the month of May.
Film maker Jay Craven of Saint Johnsbury is excited about hearing Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue at the upcoming Discover Jazz Festival in Burlington. Craven says Shorty gave a "truly electrifying performance" in Saint Johnsbury last summer. "He delivers a mesmerizing high energy concert. He's a rare artist who comes along, I think, only once in a generation." Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue performs June 7.
