Memorial Day Weekend in Stowe and across Vermont, for that matter, will be dotted with yellow signs – for what you ask? Only one of the biggest statewide celebrations of the visual arts and the creative process – the Spring Vermont Open Studio! The public is invited to visit artists and craftspeople in their studios all over Vermont, some of which are only open to the public during this event, and gives everyone the opportunity to see the work of these artisans up close. The Spring Vermont Open Studio weekend will feature more than 240 artist’s and artisan’s works from glassblowers, jewelers, potters, weavers, quilt makers, furniture makers and so much more.
Spring Vermont Open Studio weekend is supported by the farmers who own Cabot Creamery, The Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing. The Vermont Crafts Council is a non-profit organization serving the Vermont visual arts community.
Look for the yellow wayfinder signs and posters that will help you locate the studios you want to visit, or visit The Vermont Crafts Council website to request a free Vermont Studio Tour Guide booklet, which are also available at Vermont Information Centers or from the individual participating studios and galleries.
