Visit Artists Where They Make Their Art

Vermont Open Studio 2014

Vermont is home to an impressive number of highly talented artists and craftspeople. Plan to visit some of them in their studios this fall.

Printmakers, painters, sculptors, glass artists, furniture makers, metal smiths, and fabric artists are just some of the gifted artisans who find inspiration for their work in Vermont. Many of these artists and craftspeople - like glass artists Marta and Josh Bernbaum and sculptor Michelle Holzapfel, all of whose work is pictured above - open their studios to welcome visitors for conversation, demonstrations, browsing and sales.

There are a number of "open studio tour" events in Vermont each year, and coming soon are two that you don't want to miss.

Vermont Open Studio Weekend - October 4 – 5, 2014

Vermont Open Studio Tour

Craftspeople, visual artists, and ssculptors are among those who participate in this state-wide Vermont Crafts Council organized event. Plan your tour with a free map & guide with directions to the 108 galleries and studios of participating artists and craftspeople. Pick one up at any of the Vermont Information Centers, from individual studios and galleries, on-line at www.vermontcrafts.com, or by emailing a request to vt1crafts@aol.com.

In addition to being able to learn how art and craft is made where it's made, many galleries also host gallery talks and demonstrations, and feature special exhibits in conjunction with Vermont Open Studio Weekend. There is so much to see and do.
