Glimpse Behind the Scenes at 250 Vermont Artisans’ Studios
The 21st Spring Open Studio Weekend is May 25-26
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.
