CALL TO ARTISTS: Vermont Crafts Council Seeks Participants in Open Studio's 20th Year

The Vermont Crafts Council announces an open registration period for Vermont visual artists interested in participating in its 2012 Open Studio Weekend, May 26 & 27. This statewide event will mark its 20th year with a celebration of the central life of the studio in the lives of working artists. During Open Studio Weekend, artists open their studios to the public for the exhibit and sale of their work.

The intent of Open Studio Weekend is to provide visitors with an experience of an authentic studio/working environment for the purpose of informing them of the added value of hand made artwork. The Vermont Studio Tour Guide containing maps and directions to studios, is available to the public in advance of the weekend, as a hardcopy map and as a pdf available from our website.

Those artists interested in more information, or for registration materials, should visit our website at The deadline for registration is January 6, 2012.
