Artists Night Out

September 1, 2013 in Art, Stories by Mindy

Artists Night OutWELCOME LOCAL ARTISTS!

We’ve been meeting every week at the Stone Hearth Inn in Chester Vermont since March, 2013. There are no commitments, judgements or other expectations. We do this every week so people will feel free to just come when they feel like it. Just come hang out with other artists and discuss whatever with whomever. We’re not trying to organize a guild, get people to teach or attend classes, or promote any cause. Our sole purpose is to try to build some sense of community and social interaction among local artists in the hopes that this will create fertile ground for further development and organization to emerge on it’s own organic way. We hope to provide the dirt where the seeds of your goals and ideas can grow.

We meet Sunday evenings at 6:30 at The Stone Hearth Inn in Chester VT. If or when that changes, we’ll post it on our Facebook page so be sure to LIKE us and stay informed.

OUR DEFINITION OF AN ARTIST

We want our definition of artist to be as inclusive as possible. As far as we’re concerned, anyone involved at any level in any creative pursuit that can be referred to as “the arts” is welcome. This would include anyone from Michael Angelo to a farmer with a fetish for building whimsical bird houses. We already have painters, sculptors, fiber artists, jewelers, writers, musicians and even a hula hooper! The more diverse the better. Even if you’re like my mother, who quilts and weaves but refuses to think of herself as an artist, we still want you.

HELP US GROW

We’ve been meeting every week at the Stone Hearth Inn in Chester Vermont for over 3 months. Now we’re trying to find ways to step this up a notch. We want more artists to join us more often. We’re considering rotating venues to provide more access to more varied diets and more local regions. We want MORE. After all, that’s the American way, right?

We welcome all your suggestions, hope you’ll come out and join us, and of course, LIKE and SHARE this page. Keep coming back to follow our evolution. For now we meet Sunday evenings at 6:30 at The Stone Hearth Inn in Chester VT. If or when that changes, we’ll post it here first so be sure to LIKE us and stay informed.
