photo-poem : “art hop 2011” burlington vermont




if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –


if the images endure, they do so because they illuminate them


the two videos i pulled the stills from are on my youtube channel

art hop friday night has its own video, and the visit during the day to the small inlet near the main street of the festival does also

[note added 030312] special thanks to sambatucada, afro-brazilian percussion group, shown in five of the last six images of the photo-poem! great sound and co-hesiveness 😉



it was time!

art hop had skipped onto the calendar

the day was cool yet warmly greeted us, we were off –

Sheila at Lake Champlain inlet near Art Hop 2011

to be at art hop

to have it occupy us

as we’d inhabit

stalls and walls of art, booths of food and

music wafting from way down somewhere

art hop 1a

yet unseen

there, down a ways


across the street with cars and merging

art hop 1b



along old tracks

run by trains no longer hauling

art hop 1c


in chairs outside

the boxcars now gone

musicians laid new tracks of oldies drinking in

the growing darkness of night’s

art hop 1drestive still-quiet crowds

spaces opened light into the glowing



sounds of set ups

Fun Music Group

amps and wattage



art hop 1ethe lookers had prepared


strung blank

canvases of light

contrasts, friends of night

art hop 1gcalling those inside –

pawn your indoor sleep!



shadow-glows burst

into drums and horns and flaring

art hop 1f

wails with secret smiles we see in real time – timing our hearts

snaring drumming dreams

art hop 1h

it followed us and we followed too…

art hop 1i

exhausting us

like an army leaving without orders

it was over

Headin' Home

and left its


played randomly




sounds of night’s

secret fevers

find their way across remote controls left


on sofas wanting only softness

wanting only



art hop


namaste´- con dios – god be with you
