Julie Ruth, a painter, and her husband Shannon Matthew Long, a sculptor, are the proprietors.Ruth, a painter with a ten-year exhibition record across the U.S. and Canada, first arrived in Vermont four years ago on a painting fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, a large artist residency. After closing down her design and illustration business in Ohio and relocating, she met Long (now the sculpture manager at the Center). Ruth paints mainly in oils in a representational style, working from memory and the surrounding landscape. Long’s sculpture incorporates materials such as river stones and adobe into meditative works with eastern influences.The gallery will feature both Ruth and Longs work, along with a selection of mostly local artists. On display December 1st will be both two- and three-dimensional work, including collage, sterling silver jewelry, greeting cards, small sculptures, and paintings. “I expect to add more artists as the gallery gets established, and to curate shows throughout the year in order to showcase artists whose work I admire that do not live in the area”, Ruth says. The gallery also has a small working space that the artists will use while it is open.The opening of Julie Ruth Studio & Gallery will coincide with the Alchemists celebration of their second anniversary on December 1. Hours that day will be from 2-8. Through December, regular business hours will be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings: Friday from 5:30-9, Saturday and Sunday from 4-9.

The Poland international’s deal was due to expire in the summer but he has ended mounting speculation over his future by penning a two-year extension. “I am very happy and to be honest I am quite proud that I am part of the great ambitions of this club,” Boruc said. “I don’t think [Champions League is too big an ask]. We’re playing Swansea this weekend and they show playing totally different football that you can achieve a lot.” Artur Boruc is targeting Champions League football after becoming the latest Southampton player to pen a new deal. Press Association He added: “I think we are heading to this with our new manager. We are showing a lot of good work and I think the results we are getting are very good as well so, yeah, why not? “You need to ambitious in your life to achieve your ambitions. You never know what is going to happen – it is a funny story with football. Everybody has great ambitions and you need to work hard to be in that position. I do believe that we can achieve it.” Saints look all but certain to be plying their trade in the Premier League again next season and have spoken of their big ambitions for the future – something Boruc is confident they can achieve. Few could have predicted the clamour for Boruc to stay after what was a difficult start to life on the south coast. In only his second game for the club, the former Celtic goalkeeper was subject of an internal investigation into allegations he swore at home fans and threw a water bottle at them. Boruc was dropped from the side after that match with Tottenham and only returned to the starting line-up on New Year’s Day, although has since established himself as number one. “It was a bit of a roller coaster,” Boruc said. “I am glad it ended this way. That was the past and I will do everything to make the club better.”
