"We are seeing really exciting recent unionization successes," she said. Produced by Jordyn Fitch for JAM (5/3/23)

Vixens on Roller Skates

After a three-year pandemic hiatus, roller derby fans rejoiced as the Twin State Vixens took on Quebec's Duchesses at the first post-COVID-19 bout. The Vixens said a fond farewell to co-captain "Elizadeath" Taylor. The high-energy competition left fans eager for more coming up June 3 at Woodstock Union Arena.

"I Dream the Ghosts of Houses"

By Lynn Graznak

Free, on display May 5-31

Lynn Graznak makes art from the collision of disparate elements to create a multileveled dialogue between the surreal and the mundane. A multi-talented, community taught craftsperson, her work includes knitting, weaving, stitchery, felting, printing original photos on silk, doll making, 3D collage, wood and metal construction in combination with original poetry and fiction.

“I Dream the Ghosts of Houses” is Graznak’s first foray into video art, including elements projected onto textiles. 

JAM free public media arts programs are made possible in part through a BETTER PLACES placemaking grant through the VT Dept. of Housing and Community Development.
