PRESS RELEASE: Open Studio Opportunity for Flood-Impacted Artists in Montpelier

The Art Resource Association (ARA) has announced a program to provide exhibition space for flood-impacted artists during the Vermont Crafts Council’s Fall Open Studio Weekend, October 1 and 2.

“We know there are artists and craftspeople out there who are either cut off by transportation issues or whose studios have been damaged, and ARA wanted to do something to help them get their work out during the Open Studio Weekend,” said Linda Maney, the group’s president.

“Basically, it's time for arts organizations to help each other, so we will make ten spaces available at the Wood Art Gallery in Montpelier for Open Studio Weekend. We’ve paid all the fees and will offer a year’s membership in ARA to ten artists who need an exhibition space,” Maney added.

Artists or craftspeople interested in participating should contact Missy Storrow at or 802-279-6349 to sign up and get further details.
