Palmer named Dorset Library Artist of the Month


DORSET — The public is invited to meet Dorset Public Library artist of the month Gloria Palmer at anb opening reception on Saturday, Sept. 1 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.. Refreshments will be served.

Palmer, a Dorset resident, has always had an interest in the arts, and since high school has tried her hand at a number of creative projects. Seven years ago she enrolled in a watercolor workshop at Southern Vermont Arts Center and that medium became her focus. She loves the fluidity of the paints and the challenges that come with it. She finishes each piece with what has become her signature spattered dots.

Originally from Brooklyn, Gloria has lived in Vermont for more than 40 years. She is the executive director of Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning, a non-profit organization that provides educational programs for Manchester and surrounding communities. In addition, she serves as president of Burr and Burton's Alumni Association Board and chairs its Alumni Arts Award Committee.

All works are for sale and a portion of the proceeds benefit the library.

The library's hours are Monday through Friday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.. Call 802-867-5774 for more information.
