Virtual Spring Open Studio Weekend

Virtual Spring Open Studio Weekend

For 27 years, bright yellow signs have competed with a multitude of greens
along Vermont's roads to direct visitors to the studios of visual artists,
galleries and art centers across Vermont during the Spring Open Studio
Weekend. But this year, our 28th, thanks to Covid-19, we have
cancelled the face-to-face Open Studio Weekend tour and replaced it
with a Virtual Spring Open Studio Weekend Tour.

We hope that our first ever online tour will continue the statewide
celebration of the visual arts and creative process, and offer a look behind
the scenes into the life of the artist. We hope that visitors will purchase high
quality, handmade artwork from artist websites and online shops as well.

Start the tour on May 23 at 10:00 a.m. at!

5/23/20 10:00am - 6/23/20 5:00pm
