Finding Center: Paper and Fabric Work by Deidre Scherer


SEABA welcomes Deidre Scherer for the month of April to the SEABA Gallery, as part of The Full Circle Festival weekend.

“Finding Center: Paper and Fabric Work by Deidre Scherer” focuses on the universal issues of age and mortality. Known for her figurative work in thread-on-layered-fabric, Scherer will also be presenting her torn-paper weavings publicly for the first time. Her work visually promotes an open dialogue about aging by circumventing verbal boundaries.

Opening reception is Friday, April 4th 5-8 p.m., and will also be open for the following weekend, April 12-13th as part of The Full Circle Festival. SEABA will be open for the full weekend of this event, Saturday 9-5 p.m. and Sunday 9-5 p.m.

SEABA hours: Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, please contact SEABA at 802-859-9222 or

Make 2014 the year you get involved with the wonderful arts community of the South End Arts District!  Membership in SEABA gives you access and opportunity to all that the arts has to offer.  Here’s a sample of what we’ve achieved for YOU in 2013-2014.

Produced the 21st Annual South End Art Hop in 2013, with over 500 artists involving 107 sites.  An estimated 35,000 people attended the largest exhibition of visual arts over a 3 day period.

Established a monthly workshop series to provide business & artistic advice and information to small businesses and artists in the South End and beyond. Topics have included setting up a business plan, social media marketing, copyright issues.

Conducted the 6th Annual South End Holiday sHop, a fun, local shopping campaign to support businesses in the South End during the holiday season. 35 businesses and 75 artists benefited from the event exposure during the holidays.

Advocate for South End businesses in discussions involving development and transportation issues at the city level. PlanBTV, Railyard Expansion Project, and the Champlain Parkway are some of the more recent ‘projects’ SEABA has been involved with.

Development of the SEABA Center into an Information Center, which allows us to better serve visitors and refer our members.

Created the Kids to Arts Camp Scholarship program to provide assistance for an in-need family, in order to give children the opportunity to experience an arts-related camp. 

Curate artwork exhibitions in 8 locations including VCAM/RETN, the SEABA Gallery, Speeder & Earl’s, Pine Street Deli, Comfort Inn & Suites, and the Innovation Center.

Designed an Artist Studio match page on our website in order to help business owners lease their available space, and helps potential new artists find studio space in the South End.

Collaboration with creative companies in the South End. The Silo Project, Magic Hat Art Hop Ale label contest, VCAM’s South End Video project.

Growth in our event production, including Art Under the Influence (of the artist); connecting our community through creativity with the help of a local artist.

We hope you’ll join us in 2014 and help us achieve our goal of fusing culture & commerce through community, opportunity, and education.  Join SEABA!
