Announcing “Art on the Trails Walk & Natural Pigment Demonstration”

Artist Mira Cabrera creates abstract landscape paintings using a combination of natural foraged pigments and traditional mediums. Join Middlebury Studio School and Middlebury Area Land Trust during Vermont Crafts Council’s Spring Open Studio Weekend for a unique event designed to bring art to the outdoors.

Participants are invited to hike a short self-guided gallery walk along a TAM trail, with Mira’s original paintings displayed along the way. After viewing the artworks, Mira will demonstrate the process she uses to forage and incorporate natural pigments from the trails into her work.

FREE EVENT – No registration needed. Open to all experience levels and ages LEARN MORE>
