VTica is a non-profit Gallery-Museum-School dedicated to supporting the innovative contemporary artist, creating an inviting space to engage the community through diverse thought-provoking art works and events.
Our focus is to unite the community by challenging all to awaken and respond to a deeper calling through the essence of art.
The Mysterious Mind is an exhibit of visual art and sculpture that speaks directly to the sub-conscious soul through the insights of Jungian depth psychology. Four extraordinary New England artists exhibit archetypal images whose meanings may be understood mostly by our intuitive and instinctual selves. We learn to understand the meanings of these provocative visual symbols that are put before us.
Come join us at VTica to discover a new way of seeing for yourself in visual symbols.
On view through June 23rd.

Make Fabrics That Burst With Color:
A Gelatin Monoprint Process
In this special, two-day introductory course, led by Frances Holliday Alford, both quilting and fabric artists and the non-experienced will enjoy creating one of a kind fabric, making an interesting and unique image that cannot be achieved by a direct paint method. This process is very forgiving, very flexible, and very spontaneous. Each student brings a different color, a shift in shape, and variation in stitching to create a one of a kind piece.
After a career in Special Education, Frances became a full-time multi-media fiber artist. She is best known for large textile quilted constructions but she also works in collage and installation art. Frances works in Embellishments Studios at Tuttle Barn in Grafton, VT.
Tuition $65. Supplies cost $10
