Vermont’s 2017 Jazz Festival Starts Today!
It’s here. The 33rd Annual Discover Jazz Festival starts today on Burlington’s Church Street Marketplace. Get ready to enjoy 10 days full of music, dancing and fun! Discover Jazz is one of Vermont’s most popular events, hosting top quality live performances from national and regional artists. This year you’ll be treated to performances from Diana Krall, Kamasi Washington, Robert Cray, Pink Martini and many others. Join us at the kick-off party tonight at Halvorson’s Upstreet Cafe on Church Street.
Jazz Paintings at Stonehurst
You can also celebrate the festival with us at Vermont Woods Studios. We’re privileged to have five original jazz paintings featured in our gallery at Stonehurst. They are the creations of Linda Eaton Marcille, an award winning artist from Westminster, Vermont whose work hangs in public and private collections, across the country and around the world. Linda’s jazz paintings are on silk, a medium few artists will attempt.
About Silk Painting
Even at the hands of a master, silk paintings can take months to complete. Linda’s images are created with French steam set dyes that shimmer on charmeuse silk. The jewelry in each painting is created with a metallic resist called gutta that sparkles like real gold. “Silk painting is an ancient Asian art form — very unique and mysterious. The silk itself is seemingly so fragile yet it is one of the strongest fibers in nature. There is also a serendipitous quality to painting on silk with dyes. The process never allows the artist to be fully in control or to know exactly the effect that will be created.” Linda Marcille
Discover Linda’s Paintings
Do you have the perfect spot in your home for this incredible series of Jazz paintings on silk? We’re excited to be able to offer them for purchase here at Stonehurst. These are the only jazz paintings Linda has done out of an extensive body of work over many years and she will not be creating more like them. They are an investment sure to increase in value.
The original paintings are priced very reasonably to the person or family who will cherish and care for them. We would prefer to sell them as a set or perhaps split them into two sets, if necessary. Dimensions are 29″W x 25″H, matted and framed (actual image approximately 20″W x 15″H). For additional information or to purchase please call Peggy or any of our sales team at Vermont Woods Studios (888-390-5571). Looking to buy just one? We’ll talk.
