The Common Space Gallery at River Arts Presents: 

Heartbeet Lifesharing Fiber Arts

October 1 – December 27, 2019

 

“Heartbeet Lifesharing Fiber Arts” will be on exhibit in the Common Space Gallery at River Arts October 1-December 27, 2019. A reception and artist talk will be held on Thursday, November 14th from 5-7pm. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar. 

Heartbeet is a vibrant lifesharing community in Hardwick and Craftsbury that includes adults with developmental disabilities. Community members live and work together in beautiful extended family households in a mutually supportive environment that enables each individual to discover and develop his or her unique ability and potential.

The art shown is a collaboration between the fiber art creators and therapeutic woodworking studio.  After the wool feltings are made the pieces are then hand framed by Heartbeet craftsmen with timber from their land. 11 artists are represented in the group show, with pieces entitled Tree Spirit, The Shepherd, Lonely Landscape, Moonrise and more. 

River Arts is physically accessible for participants who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids, and those who prefer not to use stairs. We invite you to contact us with specific accommodations you need to facilitate your experience at the galleries. Questions regarding accessibility may be addressed to Heidi at (802) 888-1261 or [email protected]
