Snow has turned our Green Mountains white, and the fall semester is quickly coming to a close. This month we recognize several of the writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and activists who are enriching the CCV community:
- Faculty member Colette Robbins had a debut solo exhibition, Archaeological Fiction, at 101/EXHIBIT in Los Angeles. Check out the paintings and sculptures, and find out more about the artist and her work on her website. Robbins lives in New York City and teaches Drawing 1 online.
