PLATFORM VT!: Art, Fashion, Live Media Performance
Stone Valley Arts at Fox Hill presents PLATFORM VT! Art, Fashion, Live Media Performance on Saturday, October 12, 5:00 - 8:00 pm. An evening of inspiring multimedia art programming to celebrate place and community. Featured events include live music and dance performances, an opening reception for the International Collage Exchange and Vermont Feministé Exhibits a dazzling Fashion Show and locally made refreshments.
The PLATFORM concept originated in San Francisco several decades ago, at a time of economic decline. Artists partnered with the business community to create multi-dimensional art events that took place in vacant buildings. Artists and designers were showcased and the public introduced to potential opportunities in available real estate.
PLATFORM VT! presented at Stone Valley Arts in Poultney features performances by GeorgesBackPocket, Devin Balcacer, Vital Spark North. Exhibiting in the SVA galleries are 76 collage artists from around the world joined by Vermont artists, Nina DuBois, Heidi Smith, Jane Davies, Athena Tasiopolis and Erika Schmidt. The PLATFORM Fashion show features dazzling design collections: Cosmic Dance by Jen Usher, We were wildlife by Chikako and Imaginary Friends by Saffron. The multimedia art events happen throughout the evening from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. Local beer and comfort foods are included with ticket.
PLATFORM VT! creates a stimulating point of contact between artists, businesses and community. PLATFORM VT! is about ART as a conduit for communication and progress.

100% proceeds from ticket sales benefit SVA’s renovation and preservation work of the historic church building, by raising matching funds for a Vermont Arts Council Cultural Facilities Grant. This grant is being used for electrical upgrades throughout the building to include new wiring, new receptacles and lighting that are essential to the comfort and safety for participants and presenters during our events and activities. Funding will allow us to lengthen our season considerably. The existing wiring is not adequate to support lighting, sound and seasonal supplemental heat for fully functioning multimedia performances.
