Rock River Artists in Brattleboro

OUTH NEWFANE The 25-year-old Rock River Artists collective will have a Brattleboro presence this holiday season.

On Thanksgiving weekend, November 24-26, several Rock River Artists will display work for purchase at 80 Main Street, Brattleboro, the former Oasis, right next to Mocha Joe’s.

Artists include: Rob Cartelli: functional ceramics; Richard Foye, raku; Roger Sandes, paintings and prints; Chris Ericson, furniture and jewelry; Caryn King, painting; Rich Gillis, ironwork; Matt Tell: pottery; Christine Triebert, photography; Steven Meyer: painting; Leonard Ragouzeos: painting and drawing; Deidre Scherer, thread on fabric, and Georgie, painting.

Among many unique offerings will be photographer Christine Triebert’s series of unique tin can pinhole images of Vieques, Puerto Rico, which has just been devastated by Hurricane Maria. Proceeds from the sale of these prints will go to Vieques Love, a fundraising effort to help rebuild the island. Triebert explains: “The pinhole negatives were developed on the island in a makeshift kitchen darkroom, in nothing but coffee, vitamin C and salt water... a totally eco-friendly formula.”

According to event organizers, the Rock River Artists have offered their works collectively on Main Street in years past, hosting a month-long December show during several holiday seasons. This is the first time they'll be exhibiting together over Thanksgiving weekend — getting their work out of the studio and onto the street, and offering their lively mix of art and contemporary crafts to downtown visitors.
