Unbound III

The art show I'm in, Unbound III, opened on Friday, 26. July. Himself and I took the new car for the three hour ride to Woodstock, Vermont for the opening reception.

The gallery was in a small house just outside of town.  Each of the four rooms were filled with amazing works. There were large floor sculptures and sculptures on shelves, mobiles, framed pages, and books used in a hundred different ways. The works were amazing enough to stop a librarian from gasping and hitting the floor with a loud thud.

The opening was well attended as Woodstock has a large, vibrant, artist community. At times, it was hard to get into the rooms.

Tents were set up on the lawn with tables for nibbles, fruit, cheese and crackers, wine and soft drinks. Most of the group seemed to know each other. I was able to chat with the gallery owner and another artist from New York. Before the reception ended, first, second, and third prizes were handed out. I didn't win, but was thrilled to be included in the show. The show runs until 7. September 2013.

There are lots of bed and breakfasts in the area, but most required a two night minimum stay. We stayed at a motel on the main road into town. It wasn't fancy, but was clean and quiet.

and had lovely view of the mountains.

Saturday morning, we met Himself's sister and her wife for an amazing  and leisurely breakfast at the Vermont Apple Pie Company.  I had French toast piled high with shredded apples and cinnamon and real Vermont maple syrup. I was too busy eating and gabbing to take pictures. All in all it was a great getaway weekend.
