When I peeked into Judy Jensen's Clay Studio in Rochester, Vermont and saw her "ART IS BIG" print on the wall, it was clear to me that something inspirational was happening in this space... and that was even before Judy Jensen stood up from the clay she was working on, wiped her hands and came over to tell me a little about art in this lovely little town along Route 100 in Vermont.
Right down the street is the BigTown Gallery, in a beautifully quirky building, that offers not just real art (maybe this is my own attitude problem, but just randomly wandering into a small town art gallery and finding interesting, accomplished work surprised me a bit. Okay well, they must have called it BigTown Gallery for a reason, huh?) but music, poetry, theatre: here's an article from "Seven Days, Vermont's Independent Voice" that has the story of how and why and what's happening at the BigTown.
