He has been honored as an “Extraordinary Vermonter” by the governor, received the Mayor’s Peace Prize in Burlington and was awarded a Silver Citation by the Vermont Arts Council.  He sang as Vermont’s representative at the 25th Anniversary of the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and, in 1996, was chosen to carry the Olympic Torch through Brattleboro, on its way to Atlanta.  He has toured with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, has released six solo albums and lives with his family and other mammals in Elmore, Vermont.

His music can be found online at the I-tunes Web site. Go to the i-tunes store and search on
“Jon Gailmor”.

For this year’s EXPO, Jon will be singing songs we can all relate to, remember and relish. His original tunes are about parenthood, childhood, grandparenthood and all the humor, emotions and quirky situations therein.  They are apolitical, political, absurd and poignant, fraught with laughter and hope. He will also cover our beloved Beatles, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Beach Boys and countless other artists we grew up or failed to grow up on.  Nothing conjures up the most important parts of our lives like music, OUR music.  Jon Gailmor is full of it, so to speak.  Don’t miss him, from 11 to 1 on Saturday!

3:15 — Understanding the Controversy Surrounding the Recommendations for Breast Cancer Screening

Vermont’s Academic Medical Center
Presenter: Elise Liebeskind Hotaling, M.D., Assistant Professor in Radiology at the University of Vermont/ Fletcher Allen Health Care

Breast cancer remains the second leading cause of death among women. Mammographic screening has proven to significantly decrease breast cancer deaths from women aged 40 – 74 years.  In November 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force withdrew its support for mammographic screening of women aged 40-49 years old and recommended that women aged 50 – 74 years be screened every two years. Many experts in the field, including Gynecologists, Surgeons and Radiologists, argue that these guidelines will result in unnecessary deaths from breast cancer that could be avoided by annual screening beginning at age 40. This seminar will address the pros and cons of mammographic screening and aid you in forming an educated decision on how to manage your breast care and when and how often you should receive a mammogram.

Art Workshops at the EXPO

Sponsored by Artists Mediums • Booths 28 & 29 in the Exhibition Hall

Relief Printing
10 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Before photography or letterpress allowed us to easily replicate images and text, printing with hand-carved blocks was the primary method of illustrating books and other publications. Today we have a wide variety of materials that have opened up the technique to all ages and abilities. Carve an image directly into a block or use a variety of methods to transfer an image such as text, a line drawing, even use a photograph as your starting point. In this workshop, you’ll learn about the types of materials used, the basics of carving your block, image transfer techniques, and how to apply your image to all sorts of surfaces: fabric, paper, wood, walls, even clay.

Walnut Ink
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Achieve an Old-World look in your drawings with this rich, sepia toned water-based ink. Walnut ink works well with a brush or dip pen — great for all kinds of drawing. Laid out in broad strokes, it handles like watercolor, with good layering and lifting capabilities. A very malleable medium to work with, it also makes great “antiqued” backgrounds (great with block prints!) on its own or mixed with watercolors, pigments, etc. Walnut ink is a great addition to any artists’ toolbox. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create different antiqued backgrounds on paper, create washes and “lift out,” and how to use Walnut ink with other mediums.
Paint Sticks
1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Traditionally used as a way for artists to draw with their paint, Paint sticks are becoming extremely popular among quilters and fabric painters. When used on cloth, let it sit for a day or two, then cover with parchment paper and heat-set with a hot iron. These oil bars may also be used for stenciling wood floors or walls, or even upholstery and scarves. Paint sticks are also a smart travel option for artists who want to paint on the go, but aren’t able to travel with solvents or liquids. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use Paint sticks in a traditional painting method, sample how to achieve textured effects on fabric, and use them with stencils.
Presenter Kristin Richland was fortunate to grow up in a household with two very creative and supportive parents, who encouraged her to think outside the box and make the most out of what she had. Four years at the Maine College of Art introduced her to interdisciplinary techniques and pushing materials beyond their normal uses. Upon receipt of her BFA in Painting, she had worked in relief and mono printing, digital imaging, soft sculpture, and of course oil and acrylic paint.

In her current work she uses fairly traditional media such as acrylic, watercolor and ink, but she enjoys mixing them in non-traditional ways. Her subjects are fantastical dream-like creatures and landscapes which lend themselves to this type of experimentation.

Besides working at Artists’ Mediums for the past ten years, helping artists choose their materials and framing their end results, she maintains a regular studio practice and participates in several group shows and art events throughout Vermont each year.

EXPO Supports Alzheimer’s Association, Vermont Chapter

Today, more than 11,000 Vermonters have Alzheimer’s and it is projected that by 2025 the number will grow to more than 13,000. In 2010, Alzheimer’s moved to the sixth leading cause of death nationwide. Many Vermont families turn to the Alzheimer’s Association each year as a resource for information, education and support.

Last year, the Vermont Chapter educated over 1,000 Vermonters through in-person workshops and trainings. Its programs educate the in-home and professional caregiver and family members dealing with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.

The Association hosts more than 20 support groups statewide for those who find comfort in peer-to-peer sharing. Its local website received over 3,000 hits from people in the community accessing information as well as web-based education and training. In addition, the Association provides individualized consultation and support 24 hours a day seven days a week. We are here to help day or night.

The Alzheimer’s Association also has a commitment to advancing the understanding of Alzheimer’s through the peer-reviewed research grant program. Since 1982 it has awarded more than $279 million to 1,900 scientists, but there is still a long way to go.

As our population ages, resources are being stretched. The Alzheimer’s Association is dedicated to helping families affected by Alzheimer’s by providing information, services, education, support and advocacy.

The Alzheimer’s Association appreciates the incredible support of its mission and of Vermont families by the 50-Plus and Baby Boomers EXPO in 2011! For more information on upcoming programs and events or to volunteer or donate to the Association, please visit alz.org or call (802) 316-3839 or toll free (800) 272-3900.
