This week, we welcome our first guest blogger, Katharine Montstream. Katharine is known widely in our community for her wonderful artwork depicting the local landscape. She’s also an active member of Local Motion and has volunteered her time and services for many of our projects, including the Intervale XC Ski Trails and our colorful cycling and running apparel.
Moving to Vermont in 1985, I was anxious to discover new places and see what Burlington had to offer. It was summer and I found myself in the Intervale with the most amazing roadside crop of blackberries I had ever seen. Pies came in abundance that August and my curiosity for the Intervale continued to grow. What’s not to love about this space? 350 acres within our city limits and 15 organic, sustainable farms. Eating local produce and seeing it served in our public schools makes me proud of this city. Beginning in Spring, I like to bike the single track and see the fields turn green. Winter brings cross country skiing with groomed trails by Local Motion. Every day I am down there, I appreciate this fertile land and what it offers visually. To produce a new body of work from this place was an obvious choice for this exhibit. “Into the Intervale” will feature oil paintings of the farms, trails and river. I am proud to be showing the work at the SEABA Center on Pine Street (next to Speeder’s) for the month of June. An opening reception will be held Friday night, June 3rd, from 6-8. Later in the month, a gallery talk will take place on WED June 15 at 7:00.
