Don Perdue and other Vermont woodcrafters are taking over Middlebury’s VT’s Town Hall Theater in a one-of-a-kind exhibition of artistry and skill.  A stunning pile of cherry planks has been drying in a barn for over 60 years. The planks range in size from 5-18 feet and are over 2 inches thick. Don Perdue will be displaying his new 37″ high sculpture Summer Sylph, created in this cherry wood donated by Peter Langrock and his wife that made this event and the resulting works possible.
