SPRING OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND CELEBRATES 27 YEARS IN 2019
Bright yellow signs compete with a multitude of greens along Vermont's roads enticing visitors to the studios of craftspeople and other artists across Vermont during the 2019 Spring Open Studio Weekend taking place over May 25 & 26, Memorial Day Weekend.
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 local artists and craftspeople in their studios, and purchase high quality, hand made artwork.
The self-guided Open Studio tour features the work of glassblowers, jewelers, printmakers, potters, furniture makers, weavers, ironworkers, painters, sculptors, quilt makers and wood carvers. Many participating galleries will host gallery talks and feature special exhibits in conjunction with this event.
The Vermont Crafts Council publishes a free map booklet with directions to participating sites. The Vermont Open Studio Guide is available throughout the state at Tourist Information Centers, galleries and studios.
