The End

Closing Day for Laurie Salzmann  Long Meadow Farms Quilts (and more)   Dec 31

Long Meadow Farm store

We’ve all seen the articles and suggestions to “Shop Small and Shop Local” during the week after Thanksgiving.  Well, how about “Shop Small and Local” from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas EVE.  I know a terrific place for both!  Long Meadow Farms on the Waterfront Plaza in Newport, VT.  If you’re considering buying some gifts for Christmas of 2014 and 2015, this would be a good time because as of December 31st, there will be no more Long Meadow Farms.   I like shopping this little store of many pleasures and unique hand-created, well-crafted, Vermont only merchandise. Many local artisans have their works here and I am always excited to see the Cobble Mountain chairs and hammocks. Walk right in to find well crafted, fairly priced, unique gifts for just about anyone.

This is not intended to be an advertisement, only to say that it will be a sad day for this area when Long Meadow Farms is no longer…. The only shop of its kind in the Northeast Kingdom with “Vermont Only” items for sale at prices which won’t “break the bank”.  So, stop in and say, “Thanks” to Laurie for bringing all of these interesting arts to our attention for a time.  I’ll bet you will find “the perfect gift” while you’re there!

In 2010, the Wooden Horse Arts Guild promoted Laurie and “Long Meadow Farms” with this:

The Art of Photography of Youth

By camilla @ 10:15 am

The Photo Fun 2014 contest has come to an end. The Wooden Horse Arts Guild offered this contest to any young photographers, grades 5 – 12 throughout the State of Vermont and were pleased to receive entry photographs from 23 young Vermonters from 16 Vermont towns.   To help better understand photography, the use of the camera, lighting, and how to compose their photograph in taking pictures of many and varied subjects, the students were invited to attend a free seminar which took place in North Troy on a beautiful day in August.  Four professional photographers and a Visual Arts instructor from North Country Union High School, Newport, Vt. were chosen and directed to judge the photos based on Originality, Composition and technical details. Now, thanks to our webmaster, Steve Maas of Catamount Creatives, to see the winning photos, the judges and more, visit

We Remember

By camilla @ 6:19 pm

Six Months have already flown , but the Wooden Horse Arts guild members and friends will never forget two of our artists who made their mark and helped the WHAG with its beginnings.  We remember Adrien “Yellow” Patenaude and Robert Pasho.  Their lives were filled with their love of art.

We Remember -Adrien and Bob
