join us for a springtime celebration of Vermont Arts!
Vermont Artists Week open studios
Sunday, May 6th, 2018
All are welcome!
Join us for an afternoon of Open Studios as artists and writers from all over Vermont share the work they’ve created during an intensive week of studio practice here at VSC.
You’ll have the opportunity to explore the studio spaces of over 50 painters, sculptors, writers, and other Vermont-based fine artists.
This year's Open Studios will begin with a ribbon-cutting celebration in honor of the re-opening of our historic Church Studios building, which is newly renovated and preserved after a devastating 2016 fire.
After the ribbon ceremony, you'll have the opportunity to tour these bright, energy efficient, 100% accessible studio spaces. This is the first studio building completed in our Campus Master Plan and is an example of our commitment to providing clean, healthy studios to support VSC residents' creative practices.
Art Shines, the Lamoille North School District Art Show will be on view in both Gallery II (located in the lower Kahn Barn Studio Complex) as well as the Red Mill Gallery. Light refreshments will be provided.
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.
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's Arts Endowment, the Vermont Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, and numerous individual donors, we are able to reduce our residency fees by 80% to make this special one-week residency opportunity more accessible to artists and writers across the state.
