Staff artists #VermontStudioCenter

Great thing about the Vermont Studio Center is that everyone on the staff is an artist or a writer. The founder, Jon Gregg, has created a world of his dreams. Each staff person and visiting resident is supported in their creative endeavors and Pax Cultura reigns.

Recently two of the staff artists really  caught my attention. Lauren Turk works in the kitchen, and Trevor Corp works on maintenance. Both of them make art that touches me.

Both of them work in a variety of media... sculpture, painting and the written word. Corp grew up in Johnson, and Turk has just arrived for a year's stint. They have a quiet demeanor, (unless you get Turk on the Karaoke stage), and their art is both whimsical and fearless.

It has been a pleasure getting to see and experience all the art in Johnson at the studio center. So much to meditate on...
