The Brattleboro Selectboard sent an approved FY20 budget to Representative Town Meeting as part of the annual Representative Town Meeting Warning.
Representatives from the arts community, meanwhile, asked that an article requesting 2% of the Rooms & Meals tax be allocated for an Arts Fund for public arts projects, $8,424, be placed on the Representative Town Meeting Warning.

Sometimes it can be hard to accept and unfurl our own creativity. Shadowy doubts, coupled with other people’s comments–or their seeming indifference, can make us believe that creativity is for other people, but not for us.
In this hands-on workshop, we’ll work with these questions and more, individually and as a group:
· How does it feel to think of yourself as creative?
· What happens when you let yourself create without judgement?
· What will give you the courage the create on a regular basis?
Ten artists from the SouthEast Regional Hub of the Vermont Pastel Society are showing selected original pastels at The Gleanery restaurant in Putney. Please find some time in your busy day to stop in and enjoy the art and the food!
The artists are Carol Corliss, Monica Hastings, Lesley Heathcote, Deedee Jones, Pat McPike, Matthew Peake, Gill Truslow, Rodrica Tilley, Maggie Smith, and Carol Stephens. These are folks who live in the area, may be your neighbors or friends, may be people you know on a professional level. All are experienced artists who enjoy working in pastel, a medium that consists of pure pigment mixed with enough binder to form a stick. Pastels have been used by artists for centuries. When framed, they are highly archival and permanent. These paintings are all for sale. To purchase a painting, please contact the artist directly. There is a price list available with contact information.
Shoot The Moon Theater Company opens its 2018 season with a production of “The Glass Menagerie” at the Hooker-Dunham Theater, Friday through Sunday, May 4-6, and Thursday through Saturday May 10-12.
This 1944 memory play that established Tennessee Williams as a major literary voice continues to be a staple in the repertory of most theater companies, including regular productions on Broadway. But artistic director Josh Moyse admits the choice is uncharacteristic for Shoot The Moon, which has forged its reputation on original works and literary adaptations
“It almost feels like cheating. I turn the page and the words are already there,” says Moyse.
WEST BRATTLEBORO — Singer-songwriters Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway will appear in concert at All Souls’ Church on Saturday, April 14th, at 7 p.m. with their joint production, “Deeper Than The Skin – Building Bridges with Music” addressing the racial divide.
Longtime friends and collaborators, Harris and Greenway put their experiences together in “Deeper Than The Skin,” a concert presentation that explores their unique history as a white man from the capital of the Confederacy and a black man whose maternal ancestor was a slave on a plantation just outside of Richmond. They have built a bridge between their lives through 30 years of friendship, shared goals, and a passion to build community.
