You have plans to create something three dimensional but you just don't know what to use? With so many different materials to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming to choose what's right for your needs.
Come in this Saturday for a basic overview of the sculpting and casting materials available at Artists' Mediums.
Choices in Sculpting
Saturday October 16th,
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
What should you use? Does your project need an armature? How strong does it need to be? Will it survive outdoors?
Chelsea Lindner will let you get the feel of many sculpting products to give you some ideas about how to reproduce your three dimensional art, or do other casting projects.

Our shows will usually be displayed for three months and will be centered on a theme.
Waiver of Liability
Drop off's and pick ups need to be made during store hours, within one week of the begining/end of each show. PLEASE understand we are primarily a retail art store, allow for extra time during drop offs and pick ups, as we cannot always accomodate a large influx of art as quickly as a professional gallery.
Due to our retail environment, the artwork must be “PG,” ready to hang on the wall safely, and there are some space limitations.
(NO WIRELESS frames.)
If you have very large artwork, we can accomodate a couple pieces per show, so call to see if space is available.
(Per Person: 3 Designs, 3-5 of each max)
These must all be labelled with price, artist and descritpion as well.
There is some space available in our glass cabinets for 3-D artwork, but that space is limited, by size and availability, feel free to call and ask if the space is full yet.
Your artwork doesn't have to be for sale, and if you do not wish to sell it, just mark it as "NFS".
(EXCEPT DURING OUR HOLIDAY GIFT SHOW, which is a show of unique items for the gift giving season, all art must be for sale during that show only.)
Bring in your art during our normal business hours, and we will try to fit it into the show!
Open to all ages, all styles and all ability levels! We look forward to hearing from you! Contact us at (802) 879-1236 or (800) 255-1290.

Bring us your art at the begining of February 2010 for the :
WARM & FUZZY Show!
February, March and April in Vermont are traditionally so cold, we were looking for something to warm us up. At first we thought we'd ask you to bring in only art made with WARM tones: like red, yellow and orange. Realizing that many artists work in black and white, and not wanting to show too much color predjudice, we thought, how about an animal show?
Well, in the end, we decided to leave it open to either option, and this show is going to be warm and fuzzy... it can be either, or both .... surprise us...you always do!
