The Golden Cage

By camilla @ 5:36 pm

There are approximately 1200-1500 migrant workers that sustain Vermont’s dairy farms.  Migrant Mexican farm workers began arriving on Vermont dairy farms almost ten years ago. Through intimate photographs and interviews, The Golden Cage: Mexican Migrant Workers and Vermont Dairy Farmers exhibit offers a revealing portrait of dairy farmers and Mexican workers and a glimpse into their interdependent lives—what they hope for and who they are.

The Mac Center for the Arts in Newport, VT is proud to present this photography exhibit which is a part of the “Hidden Vermont” Series, produced by the Vermont Folklife Center and will be on exhibit from June 27 thru September 6.   Opening reception is Friday, June 27  with light fare, wine and music by the Newport Area Community Orchestra.

Paul Orgel – Pianist

By camilla @ 3:26 pm

Here are two upcoming performances by Paul Orgel, Pianist, at the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival in Burlington.
Wednesday, June 25  -  Mozart Piano Quartet in E-flat on the festival’s opening concert. (The Schubert C Major String Quintet is also on the program). 

On Wednesday, July 2nd, Paul will play the Piano Quartet, op. 1 by Josef Suk. If you like Smetana, Grieg, Brahms, etc., I’m sure you’ll enjoy this Romantic work by a great, but not fully appreciated Czech composer, the student and musical successor of Antonin Dvořák. 

Both concerts are at 7:30 at the UVM Recital Hall.

We never run out of Memories!

By camilla @ 12:41 pm

One of my fondest memories of Adrien is from 2006, my first full year as president.  My husband, Jay, and my son, Courtney, offered to display one of their train layouts in the upstairs of 47 Main Street in North Troy to go along with our Holiday show that year.  I told Adrien that the guys were going to display the trains and have them running, day and night, and asked him if he would paint a large painting of a train to hang at the top of the stairs.  He said, “That will be my challenge.”  He DID paint a great train (with his wonderful yellow in the painting). Above is “Adrien’s Train”. (click to enlarge)

 Here’s another memory to add to our many memories of Adrien “Yellow”.   The WHAG has received a donation to the “Camilla Mead Arts Education Scholarship Fund” (sometimes known simply as the “WHAG Scholarship Fund”). We are very honored to receive this donation, which was made in remembrance of Adrien “Yellow” Patenaude.  The Wooden Horse Arts Guild provides scholarships to Vermont residents (ages 14 and over) to encourage and recognize artistic excellence in the arts.  All contributions and donations to the Scholarship Fund are gratefully received.  Scholarship information is on
