An Afternoon with Katharine Montstream about Marketing Your Art / Stories from Her Brilliant Career

Led by Katharine Montstream
No Registration Required unless specified in the description below.

Katharine Montstream is one of Vermont iconic landscape artists.  From the brilliance of her watercolors to the depth of her oils, from the accessibility of her prints and cards to the expansiveness of her community involvement, Montstream represents the vitality of the arts in Vermont today.

Spend St. Patrick’s Day afternoon with Montstream at Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville while she discusses stories from her own career about marketing her art.  How she got started, what she learned early, what has helped her establish herself in the minds of many as “Vermont’s Favorite,” and what she is still learning today..  

Montstream is a landscape painter from Burlington, Vermont.  She first found the shores of Lake Champlain shortly after graduating from the University of Colorado in Boulder.  Although she didn’t study art in college, she soon found the “zen watercolor master,”  Larry Goldsmith.  His methods helped Montstream discover painting in a whole new light, and she studied with him for 17 years.  Other artists she has studied with include Eric Aho, Stuart Shills, Jeneanne Lunn and Wolf Kahn.  

Growing up Connecticut, Montstream had innovative teachers with whom she studied privately, including classes at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford.  In Vermont she has shown her work at Green Mountain Fine Art Gallery, Doll Anstadt Gallery, Frog Hollow, Furchgott and Sourdiffe and SEABA.  Her work can been seen at Montstream Studio at City Hall Park on St. Paul Street.  

There is no charge for this discussion, but seating is limited: first come, first served.

Legacy Workshop with Mary Fillmore and Mickey Myers

Led by Mary Fillmore and Mickey Myers
No Registration Required unless specified in the description below.

  • No charge, but advanced registration required before April 15.  Register here.

Bryan Memorial Gallery’s Legacy Workshop will introduce artists, collectors, and their families to methods and procedures for securing their artistic legacy beyond their lifetime.  Workshop includes complimentary 40 page workbook.  

Many of our artists and others around the state have had the opportunity to attend a 3 hour Legacy Workshop with Mary and Mickey under a grant from the Vermont Community Foundation.  This workshop helps artists (and their heirs) prepare for the inevitable – which is to say that time flies when you’re painting, and sooner or later, you find yourself with an abundance of sketches, finished works, drawings, materials, and what to do with it all?  Certainly, it is nothing you want to leave for your family to figure out without your input, but where, when and how to convey that input?  This workshops helps, and further, this is probably the last time it will be presented under this grant at no charge for our members and friends.  For those wanting a sneak peak, go to  (This workshop will also be given at River Gallery in Brattleboro in June.  Let us know if you would like to receive further information about the workshop in Brattleboro.) 

There is no charge for this workshop, but advanced registration is required by March 24.  This is the last in a series of Legacy Workshops presented at no charge, thanks to funding from the Vermont Community Foundation. 

All programs take place at Bryan Memorial Gallery, 180 Main Street, Jeffersonville, VT.  802-644-5100 /,
