Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Enos­burg, VT

The Artist In Res­i­dence Gallery on Main Street in Enos­burg Falls will fea­ture a three artist re­cep­tion fea­tur­ing AIR mem­bers Toby Ful­wiler, Deb Kiel and Wayne Tarr on Sun­day, June 1st at 1 pm. The gallery will also fea­ture spe­cial hand painted items - such as sap buck­ets, pots and berry bas­kets - in honor of Enos­burg’s an­nual Dairy Day. Re­fresh­ments will be served. The event is free and open to the pub­lic.

Ful­wiler, a for­mer board pres­i­dent of the AIR gallery, is a maker of wooden bowls of all sizes plus gar­lic knives and servers. “I’ve been wood­turn­ing ex­actly as long as AIR has been in ex­is­tence, eight years, and I’ve been work­ing with wood since my dad taught me to carve In­dian head rings to hold my Cub Scout neck­er­chief in place sixty some years ago,” Ful­wiler said. “My lat­est cre­ativ­ity, how­ever, seems to be side­ways, as in­stead of turn­ing new bowls or in­vent­ing new kitchen im­ple­ments, I’m now mov­ing my en­tire wood­shop from the house to a ren­o­vated horse barn half a mile away, think­ing the en­vi­ron­ment in which one works is part of the plea­sure and shape of that work. Hold on—fin­gers crossed--more good work soon ahead!»

Jew­eler and paper artist Kiel noted, “I’m in­spired by shape, color, tex­ture, groups of things, and words. I am busy cre­at­ing dapped flower forms in brass, cop­per, and sil­ver right now as well as print­ing my own note­cards to add to the gallery.”

Tarr, a pho­tog­ra­pher since 1976, spe­cial­izes in black and white pho­tog­ra­phy, por­trai­ture and school and or­ga­ni­za­tional/club/team pho­tog­ra­phy.

The seven-year-old AIR gallery is a mem­ber owned and op­er­ated co­op­er­a­tive. It is open Wed­nes­day through Sun­day. For more in­for­ma­tion call or email the gallery at 933-6403 or info@artistin­res­i­dence­coop.com or visit www.artistin­res­i­dence­coop.com.
