Saxtons River Artisans Inc. takes this moment to particularly thank the schools who participated in submitting their art work to grace the Windows of our store this past year. The very youngest of “artists” from the Village Early Learning Center were the first to submit their colorful art work of trees and butterflies. We were then privileged to enjoy the beautiful mobiles throughout the winter season provided by the Saxtons River Montessori School. This spring, pretty paper flowers graced our windows from the Saxtons River Elementary School and, most recently Vermont Academy’s Art Department sent over some lovely and colorful samples of student art projects.
Art has many forms – and a lifelong appreciation can begin at the earliest age. We trust that some of these students may find themselves pursing a particular art form, not only as a hobby, but to fulfil their creative instincts through participation in art shows, art galleries, or in cooperatives such as the Saxtons River Artisans shop. Thank you student artists – we have enjoyed the art work you shared with us.
We are delighted to have the gorgeous handmade leather works of Paul & Tisha Chevalier in the gallery. The husband and wife team bring 3 generations of skill to their beautiful work. You can see more on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/mountainleatherdesign/
