IN THE MAIN SPACE

Jabby Wall Eyes 

 

ArtsRiot is proud and exciting to be partnering with Abby Manock and James Bellizia to create our first ever installation series in our gallery. Long time friends, Abby and James come together to play on an old familiar project- in large scale. The result is the Jabby Wall Eyes mural. A fun, eccentric, energetic wall mural that will take over almost all our walls in the gallery!

IN THE ORANGE ROOM

Eliza Carver & Viscaya Wagner

Eliza and Viscaya created a beautiful street mural. As often happens to street art, it lost its home. Instead of storing it in some stuffy garage or destroying it, we took it in and made the mural part of our space! The colors and energy from the giant mural give our space a new life!

Beautiful books from your heart and hands.

Hand-made books are functional art and easy to make. While enjoying some beer or wine, we’ll create several small and medium sized books that can be used for journaling, scrapbooking, sketching, painting, and more. You choose the style, from fun & funky to classic & understated. There will be time to personalize your creations with a variety of
embellishments. You’ll receive access to a digital handout with the techniques & materials we covered, plus a list of resources for further exploration and inspiration.
Explore and create in a relaxed environment. Complete beginners encouraged! A great evening out with friends or a creative date night!

Chad Hollister Band hails from Vermont. They have been evolving and touring the country for over 20 years. Anthony J. Resta (Collective Soul, Elton John, Shawn Mullins) says “Hollisters music is pure sonic alchemy” which means it’s damn good in Vermont terms!
Chad has opened for Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Tom Petty and has shared the stage w/ every PHISH member, Merl Saunders, Warren Haynes and Blues Traveller. His music is a voice for the Positive and reminds you that life is truly a gift as is the ability to share it through music.
Chad has released four official recordings and number 5 is in the works with the first single “Breathe” to be released in the next month.
The LIVE experience is one to remember whether solo acoustic or the 9 piece band including 3 horns and percussion.

Chad Hollister’s musical style shines original with his percussive background. His personal lyrics are appreciative of a life on Mother Earth and his music is”pure sonic alchemy” (Anthony J. Resta).

He has shared the stage with Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule), every PHISH member, Merl Saunders and Dave Mattacks (Jethro Tull, Paul McCartney, Fairport Convention).

His latest single “Grow”hit #24 on the New Music Weekly Magazine’s top 100 charts. “Grow” also took the #1 slot for Indie-Music.com’s TOP 25 of 2010.

In 2003, Hollister won first place in the Billboard songwriting contest for “Jesus, Bon Jovi and Tarzan” off his Life CD, produced by John Alagia (John Mayer, Dave Matthews).

Chad Hollister’s music leaves you with an appreciation for what matters in “Life”.
