PRESS RELEASE: Chicks and Ducks and Geese . . . Oh My! at Northeast Kingdom Artisans Guild in St. Johnsbury

From June 22 through August 7 the Northeast Kingdom Artisans Guild will host a multi-media exhibition celebrating the diverse world of poultry. The public is invited to meet the artists and enjoy wine and cheese at a reception on June 26 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. The Northeast Kingdom Artisans Guild (802-748-0158) is located at 430 Railroad St., St. Johnsbury and is open Monday-Saturday from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm.

Artists from the Northeast Kingdom and across the state will express their joy and delight in chickens of all shapes, colors, and sizes, as well as ducks and geese domestic and wild . . . and maybe even emus, guinea fowl, and wild turkeys. Here a chick, there a chick captured in ceramic baking dishes, felted place mats, block prints, paintings in watercolor and oil, hooked rugs, and sculpture. Some of our best photographers will present stunning photographs of wild ducks and geese. If you love to watch the antics of your back yard chickens, if you have ever had your socks nipped at by a couple of domestic geese, if you thrill to see a flock of wild turkeys grazing in an open field, if a raggedy ribbon of honking geese makes your heart skip a beat, this is a show you won't want to miss.
