Arts Council To Host Awards Gala And Summit

October is a busy time for the Vermont Arts Council, and for arts-lovers in general.

The month kicks off with the Annual Arts Awards gala in Brandon Tuesday, October 1.  And the Council is also gearing up for the Vermont Arts Summit, October 26 at the Statehouse in Montpelier.

The Governor's Award For Excellence will be presented to artist Warren Kimble.

Awards will also be presented to author Jay Parini, Bruce Bouchard of Rutland, who has helped revive the Paramount Theater, and sculptor Carol Driscoll of West Rutland.
