Price:FREE
Time:6:00 pm
Contact Name:Rachel Moore
Phone:802-253-8358
Email:hdacexhibits@helenday.com

Intimacy + Materiality explores material and pronounces the handmade or methods of making through the lens of contemporary studio, social, and design practices. Many of the ten artists come with expertise in traditional making techniques and their concepts - from costume to crochet, screen print to stitch - while others combine disparate materials to produce sculptural objects and collage. The work in this exhibition finds its roots in material that we wrap ourselves in daily in the most intimate ways - from clothing to bedding - and departs. The artists take inspiration from the processes and techniques used from fashion to hardcore craft to create both gorgeously rich and politically enticing sculptural and two-dimensional works. From simplicity to excess, each explores their intimate environments and translates into contemporary works, often citing the historic tradition of technique through concept or execution. Opening Reception: 22 January 6:00 - 8:00pm Artist Talks: 22 January 6:30pm with Sarah Amos & Liz Collins

Two Hilarious Comedies Lighten the Darkness of Winter Middlebury, VT - 13 January 2016 - Brighten the gloom and cold of February with two of the funniest one-act comedies ever written! The Middlebury Community Players presents Peter Shaffer's Black Comedy and Tom Stoppard's The Real Inspector Hound at the Town Hall Theater, Middlebury, Vermont from February 11 to 14. Thursday through Saturday shows are at 8:00, with a 2:00 matinee on Sunday the 14th. Tickets are $12 for the Thursday show, $17 for all other performances, and can be purchased at the box office, (802) 382-9222, or online at www.townhalltheater.org. Black Comedy, Shaffer's (Equus, Amadeus) brilliant take on classic farce, is the riotous story of the most important meeting of Brindsley Miller's career. A struggling sculptor, he finally has the chance to show his works to the world's wealthiest man. But moments before the billionaire's arrival, a power outage plunges the neighborhood into total darkness. (We, of course, can see everything.) Throw in surprise visits from the spinster upstairs and the antique dealer next door, the unexpected arrival of his fiancee's disapproving father, and his mischievous ex-fiancee's arriving with a determination to reenter his life, and suddenly the apartment is filled with schemes, mis-identifications, and near-misses as the characters grope their way, unseeing, toward catastrophe. The Real Inspector Hound is Tom Stoppard's (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Jumpers, Travesties) hysterical parody of the English drawing room murder mystery. Two critics watching and commenting on the premiere of a new play find themselves inexplicably drawn into the story, forced to become characters in a mystery where the stakes prove to be deadly. Bordering on the surreal, Hound combines ingenious plotting with Stoppard's trademark wit and verbal legerdemain. Hound is directed by Trent Campbell and Black Comedy by Kate Tilton, and feature talented local actors. Come join us in February for an evening of hilarious misadventures and quality theater.

After months of rehabilitation, Tracy returned in an exclusive interview with TODAY Show’s Matt Lauer where he expressed his grief for the incident as well as his goals to come back to the entertainment world. The FXX Studios untitled comedy series created by RCG productions, toplined by Morgan, remains on hold. In June 2015, Tracy was selected to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the 2016 class. Starting September the same year, Morgan began filming his next role in the upcoming comedy, FIST FIGHT, staring Ice Cube and Charlie Day. - See more at: https://rutlandvermont.com/event/tracy-morgan-picking-up-the-pieces/#sthash.s3yswRjC.dpuf

Winter Wild Uphill Race
City:Ludlow
Place:Clock Tower Base Lodge, Okemo Mountain Resort
Price:$20 in advance, $25 Day of registraton fee
Time:7:00 am

Winter Wild is an uphill series with a twist, the finish is at the bottom so you get to come back down too. Grab your skis or snowboard, grab your snowshoes, or just grab your favorite winter running shoes and join us for some winter fun. Do you like first tracks? This events take place on Okemo and you get to hit slopes before they open to the public. What's not to like about that! The activity is called “uphilling,” and it’s adding a whole new dimension of fun and purpose to winter recreation. Uphilling is a hearty winter workout, where participants ascend a ski slope using either snowshoes, skis with climbing “skins,” or running shoes with "microspikes". You might say it’s an activity that’s people-powered rather than machined-powered. For the Winter Wild series, participants go down the mountain the same way they went up – those on skis get to slide down the slopes. Time - Check-in by 6:40 am, start at 7:00 am.

If memory forms our personal identity and shared memory forms our cultural and even racial identity, what does it mean when memories and our homes are lost? Using sand, shadow, and projection, Bend is a solo performance piece that examines this question. Artist Kimi Maeda explores the true story of two men incarcerated in a Japanese American relocation camp during World War II: the artist’s father, an Asian art historian suffering from dementia, and the subject of his research, Isamu Noguchi, a half-Japanese-half-American sculptor. Using sand as her canvas and brooms, rakes, and blocks of wood as her brushes, Maeda transforms image after image, calling to mind the Arizona desert where Robert Maeda was incarcerated, Noguchi’s landscape designs, as well as Zen rock gardens.

Green Mountain Academy welcomes John Delano of the University of Albany to talk about the stone walls of New England. Stone walls are an enduring testimony to the strenuous labors and strong work ethic of subsistence farmers who toiled for generations on 100-acre lots. The perimeters of their fields were often defined by the stone walls we frequently encounter today even in the deep woods. Modern airborne surveys reveal the vast extent of these stone walls in New England, as well as other interesting aspects of the land.

Fit to be Tyed Courses and Iron Fly & Classic Tie Tournament
City:Manchester
Place:American Museum of Fly Fishing
Price:FREE
Time:2pm-8pm
Contact Name:Peter Nardini
Phone:802-362-3300
Email:pnardini@amff.com

The American Museum of Fly Fishing announced changes to their Fit to be Tyed program. The annual favorite will now be hosted over the course of two weekends in February, culminating with a fly tying competition. On February 13th from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m. join tiers Brian Price of Vermont Fly Guys, Mike Hulvey of Central Vermont Trout Unlimited, Kelly Bedford, Paul Sinicki, and others as they show you the ways in vise mastery. This event is family friendly and the AMFF staff will also have a craft table set up to teach young children how to make clown flies. These big decorative flies made on coat hanger “hooks” serve as a fun teaching tool. Whether you are a seasoned fly tier or have yet to string together your first Woolly Worm, these classes will benefit all. The generous staff at Green Mountain Troutfitters has donated fly tying materials for the event. The courses will continue on February 27th from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. with the same instructors returning from the first event. From 6 p.m. until around 8 p.m. the AMFF and Pig Farm Ink will host the Iron Fly and Classic Tie with FREE pizza and a cash bar serving beer provided by Otter Creek Brewing. What is the Iron Fly you may ask? Well, this fly tying sensation that is sweeping the nation follows the format of the Food Channel’s Iron Chef, where participants are given a mystery bag of ingredients to make some insanely creative flies. This is open to experienced tyers and novices alike who want to prove that their vise has the spice. Immediately following the Iron Fly will be our own tournament of sorts, with a historical twist. For the Classic Tie contestants will examine three flies from the AMFF’s collection- a Quill Gordon, Adams, and Royal Coachman and try to beat the original without instructions. They will have to tie by what they see in front of them and the contestant’s patterns will be judged by our panel to see who’s comes out the cleanest and closest to the original masterpiece. Winners of the Iron Fly and Historical Tie tournaments will take home plenty of bragging rights and prizes contributed by our friends at The Fly Pack, Mud Dog Flies, Scientific Anglers, and others.

The Stowe Derby

Place:Mt Mansfield Toll Rd
Price:See Website for details
Time:See website for schedule of events
Phone:802-253-7704

The Stowe Derby is one of the oldest and most unique ski and Fat Bike races in North America. It started in 1945 as a personal challenge between two amazing skiers - Austrian, Sepp Ruschp who was hired to come to America and head the new ski school at Stowe and Erling Strom, world famous mountaineer from Norway. The challenge was the same as it is today - to race from the top of Mt. Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak to the historic village of Stowe... on ONE pair of skis! The ultimate test of a skiers ability. Ruschp was the winner of the first Stowe Derby. Today, the race attracts over 800 competitors, ranging from Canadian Cross Country Ski Team members and NCAA Champions to recreational skiers looking for a thrill. While the race can be very competitive at all levels, it is also a fun race, having been chosen as one of the top sporting events in the state by readers of Vermont Sports Magazine. Over the course, participants ski through 20km, or 14km of challenging terrain, racing down Mt. Mansfield's Toll Road and along the entire length of the Stowe Recreation Path before reaching the finish in the village. The course has a total vertical drop of over 2,600 feet. The winners will complete the course in under 45 minutes, while recreational skiers can take a couple of hours to go the same distance.
