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. Each Memorial Day and Columbus Day Weekend many of these artists and craftspeople - like internationally known Debora Coombs, pictured above - open their studios to welcome visitors for conversation, demonstrations, browsing and sales.
Plan your tour with a free map & guide with directions to the 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open Studio Weekend is a great opportunity to learn how art and craft is made at the studios of glass blowers, jewelers, printmakers, potters, furniture makers, weavers, ironworkers, painters, sculptors, quilt makers and wood carvers. Many galleries will also host gallery talks and feature special exhibits in conjunction with Vermont Open Studio Weekend.
