Bellows Falls Applauds Artists in the Month of May
Music, performing artists, theatre and open studios are featured during the
month of May in Bellows Falls, Rockingham and Saxton's River from May 4
through Memorial Day weekend. Visitors and residents of Rockingham will
have no less than 21 opportunities to enjoy arts events and recognize the
work of local artists.
"We're organizing a local effort throughout the month to draw attention to
the unique artistic offerings found in Bellows Falls," said Rockingham Arts
and Museum Project (RAMP) founding director, Robert McBride. "We've spent
over a decade integrating artists and the arts in the organic revitalization
of downtown Bellows Falls and the surrounding area, and are proud of the
integral role artists play in sharing their talents with the community."
Participating visual artists and craftspersons include Robert McBride,
Phyllis Rosser, Chris Sherwin, Cathy Tretler and Tsuga Studios of Bellows
Falls; Clare Adams of Cambridgeport; Jeanette Staley of Saxton's River; and
Ailyn Hoey and Mark Goodenough of Rockingham. Work will be on display at
the Canal Street Art Gallery, Project Space 9 and the Flat Iron Exchange in
Bellows Falls. During the Vermont Crafts Council's annual Open Studio
Weekend on May 26 & 27, these artists will open their studios to the public
and mount group shows in all three galleries.
Other event locations include Main Street Arts in Saxton's River; and Stone
Church Arts, Stage 33 and the Rockingham Public Library in Bellows Falls.
BF3F, third Friday merchant activities, take place during the evening in
downtown Bellows Falls.
