Vermont Open Studio Weekend – Central Vermont Artists
Vermont’s 23rd Spring Open Studio Weekend coming (May 23 & 24)! If you’re planning on visiting my studio (and why wouldn’t you?), you can visit other great artists within a 20-ish minute drive of here.
There are 12 studios/galleries participating in the Central Vermont area. Artists are offering exhibits and demonstrations of pottery, jewelry, photography, mixed media, painting, woodworking, and more.
I’ll be referring to studios by both name and number – the number refers to a listing in the green 2015 Vermont Studio Tour Guide. There are several ways to get your hands on a map:
- Pick up a copy at Artisans Hand Craft Gallery at the intersection of State and Main Streets in Montpelier (they’re an official Regional Information Center)
- Print out a full copy (warning – this is a big file)
- View a detailed map of Washington County on the Vermont Crafts Council website
Here’s the rundown of who’s who (click on the links to learn more about specific artists):

I created the map below to help you plan your travels. Because the studios are so close to each other, you can visit quite a few of them within a short period of time.
