Karen J. Lloyd
Winooski artist Karen J. Lloyd “embraces whimsical beauty and dramatic contrasts in art with the hope of evoking an emotional thread to our natural surroundings: the animals and landscapes increasingly overlooked in our fast-paced, human-oriented society.”

The natural beauty of the local landscape continues to be Louella Richer’s main inspiration. There is always something different to observe and a new way of interpretation that challenges her with what she sees. Recently, her art has evolved as she’s worked through moments in her life with a paintbrush in hand, using expressive arts as a tool for healing. Through the use of acrylic paints, she has given herself the space to express emotions that she couldn’t articulate in words.

Kimberly Bombard says, “My preferred medium is oil. I love its slipperiness and tactile texture. I love delicately smoothing oranges, yellows, and light blues around a canvas.”

Nick Avery: “Light and Space in the Vermont Landscape”
10/1 to 11/27/2016
“Light and Space in the Vermont Landscape” is paintings by Bill Avery based on scenes of central Vermont.
Neysa Russo, who lives and works in Corinth, says this about her work:
Every tapestry and rug is 100% wool felt handcrafted by me. The designs are inspired by ancient embroidery and knitting motifs, Middle Eastern rugs and medieval textiles from around the world and through the ages. Guardian animals, The Tree of Life and The Holy Grail, ancient themes with endless bounty for inspiration.
People, animals and foliage combine to breathe life into my felt tapestries. The perspective is often awkward and the design shapes are rudimentary, but they come together to create the beauty of everyday life. That is the nature of my folk art.

Lyna Lou Nordstrom
From a profile of Lyna Lou Nordstrom by Kimberly Musial Datchuk in the February 2015 edition of Art Map Burlington: Lyna Lou Nordstrom’s monoprints…present viewers with complicated layers of ink and meaning. The intricacies of Nordstrom’s prints rival her own complex artistic career. After studying art and religion at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, she taught art to schoolchildren in North Carolina. While teaching, she expanded her knowledge of diverse media, including batik, a method of dying fabric in which one blocks out sections using wax to allow the dye to adhere to the non-waxed areas. Discovering new methods of working with textiles led Nordstrom to step back from teaching to pursue art full-time, at which point she moved to Vermont. As part of the Vermont Arts Council, she connected with students as the Artist-in-the-Schools. (image: Tangled Up in Blue)
