Artists

Rustic Roots rotates a display of various art from some amazing local people!

Currently on Display

Philip Herbison |  Assemblages in Wood

The art Phil's been creating over the past twelve years is what he refers to as "self-generative" as wood scraps left on the floor, band saw table or cutting board from previously complete works offer themselves up to be re-imagined and constructed in new work. Preferring to create new art out of whatever is at hand, Phil is guided intuitively by these materials to create visual harmonies of texture, color, shape and substance. His work incorporates both a sculptural and painterly approach, the aesthetic statements which result are not "pictures" so much as "objects."

His ceramic art ranges from architecturally themed sculptures to machines, life size robots and vintage pedal car bodies retrofitted with ceramic mechanicals. Mr. Brickels lives in Essex Junction Vermont with his artist wife, Wendy James.

 Anne-Marie Littenberg  |  Photography

Anne-Marie Littenberg is a Burlington based artist whose venture into photography began as an part of her work as a fiber artist. In the process of evaluating her hooked rugs, she became intrigued by the way the camera helps the viewer see extreme beauty in the mundane. Her vibrant vegetable photographs make the "Rustic Restroom" an unexpected treat to visit!

Samantha Handler

Solo show of paintings and photography. Rich, familiar shapes emerge and fade- like stones or cells; moments are captured in bright color and in quiet stillness. All of the artist’s current work is a celebration of the human experience of living.

Since 2009, Deluxe Unlimited has made premium paper collages at affordable prices for the on-the-go consumer.

Sage Tucker-Ketcham

Sage came to abstraction by experimenting with house paint, pen and ink, oil and acrylic paint.  Her interest is in the process, chemistry and the repetition of the craft.  With each medium she explores what the pigment can do, and how each material has a specific roll in creating abstraction.
