We invite you to the 35th anniversary of Vermont artists week open studios!
Sunday, May 5th, 2019
All are welcome!
Join us as we toast to the 35th anniversary of Vermont Artists Week, a founding program of Vermont Studio Center! We also invite you to view the 35th Anniversary Vermont Alumnx* Exhibition and to explore the studios of over 50 Vermont-based artists and writers who will be sharing work created during an intensive week of studio practice here at VSC.
The celebration will kick-off in Gallery II (located in the lower Kahn Barn Studio Complex) at 1PM with a toast and award ceremony for the 35th Anniversary Vermont Alumnx Exhibition. The jurors, Meg McDevitt & Andrea Pearlman, will award a 2020 Vermont Artists Week Residency and solo exhibitions in the Red Mill Gallery and Gallery II, to three artists included in the exhibition. Learn more about the show.
This is a free, public event.
Campus maps and a list of participating artists will be available in each studio building on the day of the event.
*Alumnx is a gender-neutral term that embraces the full spectrum of gender identities within our community.
We hope you can join us!
About Vermont Artists Week:
Each spring, Vermont Artists Week supports creative community within our home state through an intensive week of studio work and fellowship with other Vermont-based artists and writers. Vermont Artists Week offers VT artists and writers the opportunity to immerse themselves in their studio practice, share their creative work with others, and establish networks throughout the state to strengthen a sense of creative community and support that extends far beyond the week itself.
Thanks to the generous support of Bari and Peter Dreissigacker, the Vermont Community Foundation Arts Endowment Fund, the Vermont Arts Council, and numerous individual donors, we are able to reduce our residency fees by 84% to make this special one-week residency opportunity more accessible to artists and writers across the state.
We'd like to thank all of our sponsors for their support during our 35th Anniversary:
