On Exhibit at Brooks Library

"The Back of Brattleboro," (2005) by Terry Sylvester, is on extended display at Brooks Memorial Library as part of our renovation celebration! We hope you will come to see it in person!

"This piece was made specifically for a month long show at Brooks Memorial Library years ago. I used to live down by the railroad tracks and loved walking there, so I wanted to show a panoramic view of that beautiful part of town. I am so pleased to have it be a part of the library’s celebration!"~Terry Sylvester

Fantastic Wantastiquet: Brattleboro Celebrates People and Place!

‘Fantastic Wantastiquet’, a new multi-disciplinary arts and cultural festival, will take place annually beginning in 2017 during the ‘Fall Foliage’ season; from September 1 through mid-to-late October. This year, major events and activities of the Festival will extend from Friday, September 1 through Monday, October 8, allowing for the possibility that some events may occur later in October as well.

The festival’s purpose and mission is to draw together existing arts and cultural events and activities in Brattleboro and in nearby areas of Windham County, VT, Cheshire County, NH, and Franklin County, MA.  We will create a common schedule and calendar, and share marketing, publicity, and promotional efforts. We also hope to eventually create an annual grant program to assist new jointly-produced productions, works, and special events.
