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

Currently on Display


Experience beloved scenes of our state as you’ve never seen them before: elegantly assembled in hand-cut native and exotic wood forms. The artist is Sam Macy, a graduate of The University of Vermont where he studied mathematics, art and architecture. His love of the outdoors and the intrinsic beauty of each species of tree inspired his vision to create not only iconic landmarks and landscapes such as Camels Hump and the Jericho Mill, but commissioned pieces as well, many depicting wedding venues or replications from loved photos and memories. Using natural, untouched and unstained wood, Sam builds custom frames and fills them with the unique beauty of the Champlain Valley and beyond. Sam, 27, has been honing this art form for about a year, and the timeless beauty of his pieces has earned him many followers in that short time. Sam lives in Saint Albans Vermont with his fiancé, Ali, and their one-year-old German Short Haired Pointer, Lincoln.

 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.

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.
