On Friday, September 4th, 2015, from 5pm-7:30pm, the collaborative creators of the newly released book by Audubon Lifestyles, On The Farm – The Uncertain Future of an American Legacy—Ronald G. Dodson, Chairman of ISC-Audubon, and Adriano Manocchia, Official Conservation Artist of ISC-Audubon—will attend a book signing event at Tilting at Windmills Gallery, 24 Highland Avenue in Manchester Center, Vermont. The book features a number of original oil paintings by Manocchia, whose work is represented at the gallery, and is written by Dodson, successful author of several books on conservation and sustainability. The forward is written by Stephen Jones, Ph.D., President of Antioch University New England, and Senior Fellow, ISC-Audubon.
Both author and artist will make a short presentation on the motivation that inspired them to work together on this project. Intended not only as a celebration of farming heritage in America, but also as a way of showcasing sustainability examples and lifestyles, the book is both entertaining and educational. Autographed copies will be available for purchase ($21.95) along with a selection of paintings from the book that capture the spirit of farm life. Proceeds from the sale of the book, art, and other related products benefit the Seeds Fund of ISC-Audubon.
