Ver­mont’s ven­er­a­ble Open Stu­dio Week­end fea­tures nearly 250 crafts­peo­ple and fine artists across Ver­mont who will open their stu­dios to greet vis­i­tors for con­ver­sa­tion and shop­ping dur­ing the 2013 Open Stu­dio Tour on May 25 and 26.

Open Stu­dio Week­end is a statewide cel­e­bra­tion of the vis­ual arts and creative process, of­fer­ing a unique op­por­tu­nity for vis­i­tors to meet a wide va­ri­ety of artists and crafts­peo­ple in their stu­dios, some of which are only open to the pub­lic dur­ing this event.

This year’s tour fea­tures a num­ber of artists new to the tour, giv­ing long-time Open Stu­dio vis­i­tors some fresh des­ti­na­tions to ex­plore. There are also some new clus­ters of stu­dios in Lin­coln, Wilm­ing­ton, Chit­ten­den, Mid­dle­sex and Greens­boro. Many vis­i­tors plan to head to their fa­vorite stu­dios to see what new art works await them.

The self-guided Open Stu­dio tour fea­tures the work of glass­blow­ers, jewel­ers, print­mak­ers, pot­ters, fur­ni­ture mak­ers, weavers, iron-work­ers, painters, sculp­tors, quilt mak­ers and wood carvers. Many gal­leries will host gallery talks and fea­ture spe­cial ex­hibits in con­junc­tion with this event.
