2012 marks 20 years of Open Studio Weekend in Vermont and is a unique opportunity for people to meet a wide variety of artists and craftspeople in their studios, some of which are open to the public only during this event. As always, the two-day event is held Memorial Day weekend, this year on May 26th and 27th. Visitors will be able to learn how art and craft is made at the studios of glass blowers, jewelers, printmakers, potters, furniture makers, weavers, ironworkers, painters, sculptors, quilt makers and wood carvers. Many galleries will also host gallery talks and feature special exhibits in conjunction with Vermont Open Studio Weekend.

Vermont Spring Open Studio Weekend is a statewide celebration of the visual arts and the creative process in which Vermont artists and craftspeople invite the public to visit them in their studios. The Vermont Crafts Council launched Open Studio Weekend in 1993 as a way to increase the visibility of artists and craftspeople in Vermont. The event’s goal is to foster an appreciation for the creative process and the role that artists and craftspeople play in the vitality of Vermont’s communities.iCal Import
