Join us for the Opening Party of the 15th Annual North Bennington Art Park July 21st from 4 pm. to 8pm. The event is free and open to the public. There will be music, refreshments and especially the best Art exhibition in New England this summer.
The Art Park is located on the grounds around the North Bennington Post Office and Train Station including Welling Town House and the Aldrich property next door.
This year we are exhibiting sculpture, painting, photography and mixed media artwork from 65 local and regional artists. The Art Park is an invitational exhibition and each artist selects his or her entry. All the artists invited have professional experience and many are nationally known.
There will be a performance piece by Glenn Campbell of West Rutland and local sculptor Fred Brownstein who joins Glenn to create an event combining poured metal and flaming figurative sculpture. Artists returning to exhibit outdoor sculpture include Willard Boepple, Joe Chichirillo, Matthew Perry, and sculptors from Salem Art Works . The Train Station Gallery will be open this year only through August 19th.. Gallery hours will be Thursdays and Fridays 4pm to 7 pm. Saturdays from 10am.to 1pm. and Sundays 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm. We encourage everyone to visit the Galley exhibition that will contain works by Pat Adams, Kevin Bubriski, Susie Cronin, Ann Pibal, Leslie Parke, John Recco, Barbara Sussman , and Elaine Witten among the 37 entries exhibited.

Vermont Art Zineencourages contributions from Vermont art critics and reviewers, as well as unsolicited contributions on topics in the visual arts from a diverse range of artists’ voices from around the Green Mountain State.

How to submit a PRESS RELEASE
We'd love to post your venue's press release. Please send us a prose paragraph of text about the exhibition/event AND one or more jpeg images. Please DO NOT send just an electronic exhibition card. We reserve the right to decline inadequate press releases.
We want Vermont Art Zine to be a commons for our Vermont visual arts community, with information and pictures about shows, artists, and venues around the state. To make that happen, we need artist/writer participation from many, many different voices in many different places in Vermont.
Do you have ideas about issues and hot-button topics in the visual arts? We post questions for response and debate. Let us hear from you!

How To Add Your Link
If you're a Vermont artist or a visual arts presenter, we'd be happy to list your website or blog (one of each) in our LINKS. Send your link to email@example.com. If you'd put up a reciprocal link, that would be great!
Blog Listing Policy
Vermont Art Zine offers to link to one blog per Vermont artist. Send your request to the addresses above. We reserve the right to remove blogs from this list if they have been without a new post for 6 months. If you use your blog more as a website (that is, you put it up and then more or less leave it, with just occasional updates), ask us to list it under VT Artists instead.
We will be happy to link to one website for each Vermont artist. If you have a website and a blog, we will link to one of each. A Vermont artist is someone who resides in the state for more than half the year. Artist websites should be about the visual artwork of the artist. It's OK to sell through your site, but it should be your own work.
