Performances and Events:
One of the featured exhibits The Latin American Tapestries of Mary K. Merrill captures scenes of Latin America and embodies Merrill’s knowledge and love of its landscapes and archeology. Sharing the space in the third-floor gallery is the breathtaking photography of Joe Coca, “Faces of Tradition: Weaving Elders of the Andes.” Exemplifying the textile traditions of one of our Native American cultures is the exhibit “Two Grey Hills: Navajo Weavings from the Teller Collection.” Barbara Teller Ornelas and her sister Lynda Teller Pete, fifth generation Navajo weavers, have shared examples of their families Two Grey Hills weaving. Occupying the walls along the stairs are the original drawings of Angel Callanaupa Alvarez that are featured in the book, “Beyond the Stones of Machu Picchu: Folk Tales and Stories of Inca Life” which was a collaboration with Vermont author Elizabeth Conrad VanBuskirk.

The traditional art of Pisanky has been passed down from mother to daughter for thousands of years. To give a pysanka is to give a symbolic gift of life. Designs and colors on the pysanka are symbolic in meaning and are chosen to match the character of the person to whom the pysanka is to be given. Cost of the workshop is $30 per person. All supplies provided. Appropriate for teenagers and adults. Limited seating. RSVP required with specific date (April 5 or April 6) to Terry Reeves at (603) 924-4555 or
