We’re feeling very honored today. Our Stonehurst fine furniture and art gallery has been graced by the entire collection of Linda Eaton Marcille’s original New Orleans Jazz silk paintings.
Jazz in Vermont
You might not think of Vermont as being synonymous with Jazz but we actually have quite a respectable jazz and blues community here. Burlington has hosted the Discover Jazz Fest annually for the last 39 years, proudly featuring such jazz legends as Sarah Vaughan, Lionel Hampton, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Dave Brubeck, Branford Marsalis, Diana Krall, Jon Batiste, Christian McBride… I could go on but you can get the whole run down here on the Discover Jazz Fest website.
Just down the street from Stonehurst, we have the Vermont Jazz Center at the Cotton Mill in Brattleboro, VT which hails back to the early 1970s. Founded by legendary guitarist Attila Zoller, the Center is now run by pianist Eugene Uman and his wife Elsa Borrero. It features a summer jazz workshop, monthly concert series, Wednesday night jam sessions, and frequent collaborations with area schools, jazz art organizations and businesses.
Linda Marcille’s Jazz Paintings on Silk
It’s not surprising then, that some of America’s most beautiful (and quite possibly the only) jazz paintings on silk come from Vermont. They are the artistry of Linda Marcille, an award winning artist from Westminster, Vermont whose acclaimed artwork hangs in public and private collections, across the country and internationally. Now, for a limited time these beautiful and unique paintings on silk are available for purchase at Vermont Woods Studios.

Painting on Silk is a Rare Artistic Skill
Jazz lovers and art collectors: hurry to see these incredible paintings at Stonehurst! I promise you will not be disappointed. This is world class art. Read about the interactive and unforgiving nature of the silk painting process here. Even at the hands of a master, silk paintings like these can take weeks or even months to complete. The images are created with French steam set dyes that shimmer on the charmeuse silk and the jewelry in each painting is created with a metallic resist called gutta that sparkles like real gold! This is an unbelievable opportunity to acquire a collection of original silk paintings of your favorite jazz masters at a Vermont price.
