I really enjoyed talking to Jim Maxwell Friday on Brattleboro Community Radio‘s ArtTalk. Fifteen minutes really flew by, and I could’ve talked about Brattleboro-West Arts for twice that long. If you want to hear the whole story, you’ll have to stop by my studio during this weekend’s Open Studio Tour. In the meantime, if you didn’t have a chance to tune in, you can listen to the interview here (15:21), courtesy of Jim and WVEW:

“Geography is really kind of important … the place (where) we make the art becomes part of the art, and that art, in turn, enriches the place that we’re in. That’s why we’re really jazzed about the idea of the studio tour. It’s kind of the reason for being for the group.”

Each month, a different member of Brattleboro-West Arts typically hosts a potluck in their home where the group gathers to share some food, drink and discussions about  what inspires us. The March discussion at the home of Janet Picard focused on how the seasons affect our art. Hear what glass artist Marta Bernbaum had to say about how nature’s ability to adapt inspires her:

“My work has always been about adaptation, and trees adapting to those crevices and to those crazy environments, and existing in those insane spaces. Maybe they grow shorter, or sideways, or something different, in order to make it.”

Each month, a different member of Brattleboro-West Arts hosts a potluck in their home where the group gathers to share some food, drink and discussions about  what inspires us. Hear what woodworker Jason Breen had to say about his process recently at the home of Janet Picard:

“I sometimes think of myself as a collage or found-objects artist more than a woodworker, because I’m finding this thing that’s already made, by God or nature or whatever, and I’m using it in a piece.”
