MIDDLEBURY — An upside-down figure on the porch of Danielle Gori-Montanelli’s home studio near Middlebury Union Middle School, gives you the idea that this neighborhood home might be a little different from the rest. And indeed it is.

This is where Gori-Montanelli creates her “fanciful felt jewelry.”

Orwell artist Stacey Stanhope goes from 'perking' to 'potting'

ORWELL — Do you remember puff paint? Come on, be honest. It was a horribly, wonderful craze in the ’90s, where we’d attack shirts, pants, bags — pretty much anything — with the small plastic bottles of “puffy” paint. We endlessly squeezed bright colors through pinpoint nozzles to create oh, so glamorous decorations on our garments. Ah, the ’90s…

Stacey Stanhope is an unashamed puff-paint lover. It started out as a hobby: painting elaborate hunt scenes with foxes and horses on shirts.

Vergennes' Kyra Bradford plays the victim in a new indie thriller

VERGENNES — There is nothing nice about “Garrow” — an independent thriller/noir-style feature film based on the true events of Robert Garrow’s life. Nope, nothing at all. And there’s nothing nice about the role Vergennes actor Kyra Bradford plays either.

Fair warning: “Kyra doesn’t make it out of the movie alive,” said her mom, Sasha Bradford; who likes to set clear expectations for anyone interested in coming to the Vermont premiere at the Middlebury Marquis Theater on March 6.

Andrew Noethiger will immerse you in a soundscape — with gongs

MIDDLEBURY — Usually if someone falls asleep within 90 seconds at your performance, you might be embarrassed. But not Andrew Noethiger.

“If someone’s snoring, I’m doing my job,” he said in an interview last month.

So what exactly does he do that he’s happy when his audience not only dozes off, but is so relaxed that they share their unencumbered cacophony?

Middlebury art museum celebrates a half century of acquisitions

MIDDLEBURY — Most of us probably don’t quite realize what we have in the Middlebury College Museum of Art. We say, “sure, it’s the college, of course they have an incredible museum of art” — perhaps in a similar way a New Yorker passes the MOMA with a shrug.

But it’s worth a second thought, for sure.

Matthew Evan Taylor: Bringing new voices into the century

MIDDLEBURY — How often do you think about the composer when you’re listening to classical music? Be honest…. For most of us, it’s not much at all, right? And that’s OK.

“There’s something really nice about experiencing classical music; letting it wash over you,” said Matthew Evan Taylor, an assistant professor in the Music Department at Middlebury College. “But for some reason, nobody is perturbed that the fourth concert you go to is all white men.”

Archives are important; they chronicle our lives, catalogue our stories and serve as the living history of a community. But archives are also good at collecting dust. Even the most meticulously cared for archives (no dust to be found) have a way of being forgotten — lost in the multiplicity of other records.

Pierre Vachon pierces perceptions

Pierre Vachon_7131 by Steve James.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Odds are you’ve seen Pierre Vachon around Middlebury. And odds are you might have been a little scared.

It’s OK, you’re not alone. Guys in black leather trench coats, with tattoos, and enough muscle for a quartet are intimidating, for sure.

But we also all know that usually there’s more than what meets the eye. And Vachon is no exception.

MIDDLEBURY — After a full day at work, the gym (because we’re all trying to hang on to those New Year’s resolutions) and some dinner, lots of us head for that dent in the couch and settle in for a TV show, cup of tea and then bed. But sometimes it’s nice to shake things up; give that couch a rest and go out on the town.

What is there to do in Middlebury past 8 p.m. on a weeknight, you ask?

Good question.

Brenda Myrick moves beyond watercolor with spirit

BRISTOL — When you’ve been doing something for more than 30 years, chances are you’ve experienced some changes. Brenda Myrick knows the feeling. In fact, she’s in the middle of a shift right now.

“I’m at the point where I’m ready to stop painting watercolors the way I used to,” explained Myrick, who primarily painted commissioned portraits of loved ones — people, and pets, too.
