Plein Air Northeast Kingdom is planning 10-12 plein air paint-outs where artists will gather on site and paint the beauty that is the NEK. At some of these paintouts we will meet at the end of the session for a shared critique and bring your own bag lunch. The paintings produced at these paint-outs will be exhibited in a juried exhibit at MAC Center for the Arts September 16th, 2016 – October 15, 2015.

Counterpoint Chorus - July 25, 2016 Nathaniel Lew, Director Alison Cerutti, piano This year, we are leaning towards a more eclectic mix of songs about the four seasons from at least four different musical traditions. The program includes the complete Estaciones Portenas (Seasons of Buenos Aires), a set of four tangos by Argentine master Astor Piazzolla, and Early Morning Mists, an evocative cantata by Israeli composer Yehezkel Braun setting his own seasonal haiku. In addition, there are German Romantics partsongs by Felix Mendelssohn, Peter Cornelius, and Johannes Brahms, songs from Broadway's golden age, and a selection of recent short works depicting Vermont's own seasonal cycle by local composers Sara Doncaster, Peter Hamlin, Erik Nielsen, Kevin Quigley, and Carol Wood.
