     | February 24,2014

    MONTPELIER — Vermont women with extensive knowledge of the arts will be holding a panel discussion on March 12 in the Pavilion auditorium at 109 State St. from noon to 1 p.m. The event will be followed with a reception in the Snelling Room at the Vermont History Museum from 1 to 2 p.m..

    The panel, hosted by the Vermont Historical Society and the Vermont Commission on Women, will be introduced by Mickey Myers of the Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville and led by moderator Mara Williams, Curator of the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.

    Panelists for the event include fiber/installation artist Alisa Dworsky, pottery expert Susan Leader, printmaker Carol MacDonald and painter Katharine Montstream.

    “We are glad to collaborate once again with the Vermont Commission on Women to celebrate Women’s History Month,” Vermont Historical Society Executive Director Mark Hudson said. “We can gain new perspective from our moderator, Mara Williams, who produces powerful exhibits that challenge the status quo while honoring Vermont’s artistic legacy.”

    Hudson adds that many of the Vermont Historical Society’s events this year will focus on Vermont artists, culminating in “Artists and Artisans: Vermont’s Creative Heritage,” at the Vermont History Expo June 21 and 22 in Tunbridge.

    The panel discussion is free and open to the public and is sponsored by Vermont College of Fine Arts and Clute Wealth Management. For more information contact Amanda Gustin at (802)-828-2180 or vermonthistory.org/calendar.
