Eli West In Concert

Music @ THE MILL

Ben Winship and Eli West play Brother duets, both original and traditional. They have a sonic span that reflects and defies their geography. While both are rooted in the West, Ben in the Tetons and Eli in the PNW, they each have been moved by the traditions of SW Virginia, the Carter family fold, and broader fiddle tune traditions with pockets all over.

They deliver their songs with conviction, both writing and singing in a way that just stops short of a final sanding or polish.

ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMER'S MARKET

ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMER'S MARKET

The Arlington Area Renewal Project is sponsoring the ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMERS’ MARKET to be held every Friday starting August 31 until October 5 from 4-7 PM.

The ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMERS’ MARKET will be held on the grounds of THE ARLINGTON INN at the intersection of Route 7A & Route 313 in the center of Arlington.

In addition to local vendors of meats, eggs, breads, baked goods, produce, cheese, and other food products, a “Health Booth” will rotate services such as free blood pressure checks, chair massages, and reflexology.  Other booths offering activities for adults and kids are being planned.

THE ARLINGTON INN will also host its renowned “Meet the Makers” series during the ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMERS’ MARKET featuring different distilleries and breweries each week. Featured breweries and distilleries will be on hand to tell us what makes them special and how they do it. Special cocktails will be provided for purchase accompanied with selections of small plates for all to enjoy!

Proceeds from the ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMERS’ MARKET vendor fees will benefit Burdett Commons, an organization established to provide activity and events for youth and seniors of the Arlington, Sunderland, and Sandgate area.

Project Lead, Col. Jim Baker, says, “This is another example of how our residents are collaborating together to offer new experiences for our community and to bring visitors to our beautiful town – and benefit our local nonprofit organizations.  People now have the opportunity to shop for the weekend – or the week - on their way home from work, enjoy some music, engage in some fun activities and still have their weekend free for family and friends.”

The Arlington Area Renewal Project is a totally volunteer group of involved residents focused on collaborating for the common good by bridging our long tradition with a vision for future opportunities.

USS Bennington and Arlington in World War II Exhibit

  • Martha Canfield Library (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Martha Canfield Memorial Library and the Russell Vermontiana Collection will host a special World War II exhibit.

 The first section, Arlington at Home, highlights the local impact of the war in daily life for residents of Arlington, Sandgate, and Sunderland, Vermont. The exhibit will display original items from the Russell Collection including examples of rationing materials, Civil Defense drills, and plane spotters’ records (Yes, we did maintain an active plane spotting unit in Arlington!).

The second part of the exhibit is focused on the World War II history of the USS Bennington aircraft carrier. This is presented with the annual USS Bennington Crew Reunion held in Bennington, Vermont during the Bennington Battle Days.

The Bennington carried bomber, fighter, and torpedo squadrons that inflicted heavy damage on Japanese land, air, and sea targets. Bennington pilots landed the first two hits on the great Japanese battleship, the Yamato. The carrier proudly served until she was decommissioned and sold for scrap in January 1994.

The Arlington at Home and the USS Bennington exhibit will be on display from Thursday August 16 through Sunday August 19, with a reception for the USS Bennington Reunion members and the public on Friday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Special hours for viewing the exhibit are Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Vermont Humanities Council Event

"Of Wheelmen, the New Woman, and Good Roads: Bicycling in Vermont, 1880-1920"

In this lecture, UVM professor Luis Vivanco explores the fascinating early history of the bicycle in Vermont, a new invention that generated widespread curiosity when it arrived here in the 1880s. During the 1890s, enthusiasm exploded statewide as bicycles became safer, women took to the wheel, roads improved, and retailers developed novel advertising techniques to draw in buyers. By 1920, popular interest in bicycles had waned, but it had not just been a fad: the bicycle was tied to important changes in industrial production, consumerism, new road policies and regulations, gender relations, and new cultural ideas about auto-mobility and effortless speed.

This is a Vermont Humanities Council event hosted by Martha Canfield Memorial Free Library, 528 E Arlington Rd, Arlington, VT.

Call the Library at (802) 375-6153 or visit our website marthacanfieldlibrary.org for more information.

Perfect Picture

  • Southern Vermont Arts Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

July 20 at 7:30pm
July 21 at 3pm and 7:30pm
Arkell Pavilion at the Southern Vermont Arts Center

 

PERFECT PICTURE is the centerpiece of the month-long 4 FREEDOMS FESTIVAL. The musical juxtaposes the extraordinary story of Norman Rockwell’s quest to create the iconic Four Freedoms suite with a portrait of the artist’s personal life and the women in it. A Broadway cast and production team are bringing Rockwell’s story to the stage.

Four-Time Tony Award nominee Randy Skinner (Broadway’s 42nd StreetDames at SeaState FairWhite Christmas) directs and choreographs. Tony and Emmy Award winner Lillias White (Cy Coleman’s The LifeDreamgirlsSesame Street) stars as “Amy the Wild Woman” who taught Rockwell his creed: “Don’t show life the way it really is, but how folks want it to be.”

THE STORY: In 1942, illustrators enjoyed celebrity status—and Norman Rockwell was a superstar. He was too old to enlist, but still wanted to do his part, so he volunteered his services to The War Department to paint a series of posters inspired by F.D.R.’s Four Freedoms Speech. Despite his fame, Rockwell was flat-out rejected. They told him, “In the last war, we used illustrators like you. This time around, we want fine arts men. You know…real artists.” Using this episode as a framework, the musical PERFECT PICTURE explores Rockwell’s life, loves, insecurities, and resilience.

Book & Lyrics by Eileen Bluestone Sherman. Music by Gail C. Bluestone. Musical Direction by Timothy Graphenreed (The Wiz). Musical Arrangements by Sam Willmott with additional Dance Arrangements by Rob Berman (Steve Martin’s Bright Star, Tuck Everlasting). Scenic Design by William John Aupperlee. Costume and Lighting Design by Ken Mooney. Press Representative: Keith Sherman & Associates. Sponsorship Consultant: The Erlick Group. Legal Counsel: Law Offices of J.J. Sherman.
