While I am working on the sorting of the Photo Fun Challenge photos, I thought about some of the “Selfies” which are appearing today. Some are terrific, but some ‘not-so’. well, my mother carried her blue box Kodak with her everywhere and here is a photo of herself in our dining room mirror. It actually turned out pretty good! Loved to watch her take pictures!
Keep a lookout in this space. There will be Challenge photos coming soon.
The Wooden Horse Arts Guild Arts Education Committee has announced the Fall Scholarship Round for the Camilla Mead Arts Education Scholarship Fund. Applications of up to $500.00 are now being accepted. The round will be closed to applicants on November 30, 2016.
One of the ways the Guild fulfills its 501c3 mission is through the Scholarship Fund. The fund is named for a founding member and current president who continues to be dedicated to supporting creative development in the arts. We encourage and recognize artistic excellence in the literary, visual and performing arts and to date have given 14 scholarships in these fields. The Spring 2016 Scholarship winners are Cassie Tarbox of Newport . Cassie received an award to help further her education in Dance. Sophia Cannizzaro of Glover was able to attend the Governor’s Institute with the award she received.

“Art adds to a community, attracts a core of people who are intelligent, creative and bring new ideas. They have a lot of energy, which is a wonderful thing for a community to have.” This exhibit of work is by landscape artists who have been painting all through the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont during this summer of 2016.”
