Hooked in the Mountains XV [247]

‎11/19/11: Did you know that the world's largest hooked rug exhibit is held in VT every year? The 15th annual Hooked in the Mountains was held at the Shelburne Museum in the round barn and included about 480 rugs, each made one loop at a time by members of the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild. While the subject matter, colors and styles varied wildly, all hookers share an appreciation of this historic art form.

Music: Joshua Panda, "Rosie"

Dennis Sparling [246]

11/12/11: Dennis Sparling has been sculpting metal in his former quarry home studio in New Haven Vermont for over 40 years. Burlingtonians are probably familiar with Sparling's Church Street sculpture "Leap Froggers" and his "UVM Catamount" near the Royall Tyler Theatre. Sparling hopes to take his new 9 foot tall creation, Leonardo Da Vinci, on a road trip across the country to find its permanent home.

Music: Renaissonics, Carols For Dancing, "Remember, O Thou Man," "Un Sarao De La Chacona," "Halfe Hannikin," "Greensleeves Passa E Mezzo"
