Special Events Mark Epoch’s 10th Anniversary in Manchester
Epoch, Manchester’s own Vermont artisan’s cooperative gallery, is celebrating its ten-year anniversary on Main Street in Manchester Center. Come help them celebrate on Saturday, July 13, from 1 to 5 p.m. Meet some of Epoch’s artists, enjoy free popcorn, hot dogs and homemade cookies, and jive to the music of Vermont landscape artist Peter Huntoon and his band. Try your hand at the potter’s wheel with help from Nick Seidner, founding member of Epoch and co-owner of Rising Meadow Pottery in Middletown Springs. Ken Ahlering will be demonstrating his 40+ years of skill at oil painting. Ken joined Epoch recently and has shown his paintings in US embassies around the globe as an artist representative of the US State Department. Meet Bob Gasperetti, another founding member and well- known furniture craftsman, as well as glass artist Karen Deets, who was recently featured on a local television program, Made in Vermont. Over 20 Epochartisans present work in a variety of mediums: furniture and decorative wood, decorative and wearable fiber, pottery, glass, stone, jewelry, metal, lighting fixtures, brooms and bird sculptures, as well as 2D art work of many types.
