Most Vermont artists and artisans work in studios close to, or in, their homes.

Many small galleries, and art centers also take part in this event, showcasing a unique collection of hand made and local artwork, including special events and exhibits.

Authenticity and quality are at the heart of Open Studio Weekend.

Studios are places of production and inspiration found in downtowns as well as at the ends of dirt roads. Wherever their locations, they are exciting places to visit because they reflect the dynamic yet organized process that is used to produce the finished work of art.

In the studio, you can see, at a glance, how the artist works. You see the fabric that have not been chosen for the quilt or the work that is experimental. There too, the artist’s specialized equipment and tools are on view. On display will be other artwork that the artist finds to be inspiring.

All work purchased during Open Studio Weekend, besides being beautiful and useful, has a great story attached to it!

Order your own map booklet, which has maps and directions. Look for the yellow wayfinder signs during the events to guide you to the studios.
