scarf for blogThe Wooden Horse Arts Guild is looking forward to a great weekend of Arts and Crafts with the members of the Wooden Horse Arts Guild. On Saturday and Sunday, October 11 & 12, the WHAG will be at the DEGRE Auction House Route 100 in Westfield, Vt. This is an “all member” show at which you will meet artists, bowl turners, quilters and wood workers. You will see wonderful needle felted paintings, silk scarves, jewelry (including a Guest Jewelry Artist from Florida), Antler carvings, stained glass, multi media art, pottery and much more. Young Jake Swanson will show you how he creates an animal with his chain saw.

On Saturday, from 11 to 2 The Wooden Horse Arts Guild is pleased to introduce  new local author, Henry F. Stocek of Troy, who will be signing his book, “Queen of the Valley – The Days of XYZ”  .

Hank will be on hand to talk about the attack of the Deep River Savings Bank in Deep River, CT in Dec. 1899, and his historical dramatization, based on a true tale of a little Connecticut town which experienced the traumatic event at the time when McKinley was in the White House. Even today people leave coins and flowers on the robber’s grave.  Henry Stocek is a born story-teller. You will enjoy meeting Hank and hearing about his first literary work.

While you’re out and about be sure to visit Whag member, Leona White, who will be at her Gallery and Studio at 146 White Road, Irasburg, VT. Don’t miss a visit with Leona and her gallery of many paintings of wonderful places. Leona’s gallery is only 19 minutes from the show.
