Central Vermont's Most Popular Weekly Newspaper

A creative community for the arts

Susan Wacker-Donle is Killington Arts Guild's Webmaster. She continues to develop the website originated by Sally Curtis, KAG president, and her son Jon Curtis. The Website demonstrates how committed KAG and its membership are to a diversity of arts. It is a way for us to communicate with each other and with the public.

Susan's newest page, Member Announcements, is particularly exciting. For example: Susan announces she has finished a three-turtle T-shirt logo design for Luana-Kai Resort, Maui; Edie Johnstone has created two new luna moth designs; Mary Fran Lloyd and Alice Sciore (with poems by Cathy Quaglia and Linda Fondulas) have created HeARTS for the Rutland project to benefit victims of Irene; Saska Hagen Groom's traveling troupe of teenagers has presented The Taming of the Shrew; and there was a fine article on Robin Taft's furniture in Seven Days.

On the opening page of the website, titles such as "Calendar," "Membership," and "Mountain Times" bring you current information. Subtitles such as Killington Summerfest are for special events. Susan is adding 2011 and 2010 archive subtitles under "Mountain Times."

The "Membership" page will tell you the requirements and benefits of belonging to KAG and forms will provide a membership application; Calendar will tell you that a new gallery show will open on Sept. 1 with a reception co-sponsored by Base Camp Outfitters and Cabin Fever Gifts to be held September  4, from 4-7 p.m. for members and friends and from 5-7 p.m. for the Killington Chamber of Commerce.

Didn't see Betty Little's KAG column last week- find it under "Mountain Times"; missed Sally Curtis' Newsletter-it's on the website. Check "Programs" for details about KAG activities: the Gathering of Poets will be on Monday Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. in the Sherburne Memorial Library and a program on the Vermont Institute of Contemporary Art by Abbey Raeder, executive director, will take place on Monday Oct. 15 at 7 p.m., also in the Library.

The website is a way to keep us all informed and to invite the public to join us. It is the first step in linking up with other galleries and associations to help create a presence in Vermont for the Arts.
