Vermont Craft Council Fall Open Studio Weekend Frog Meadow New England's Best All Male Gay Resort in Southern Vermont

The Vermont Craft Council’s Fall Open Studio Weekend includes several BWA artists among the sites around Brattleboro, West Brattleboro and Dummerston, Vt., that will participate in the statewide event. Each spring and fall, BWA coordinates local efforts among member and nonmember artists alike to put this area on the map as a destination during the VCC’s semiannual tours.

Look for yellow signs along Western Avenue during the event weekend or visit Vermont Artisan Designs on Main Street in Brattleboro for a map of local tour stops. Participating studios will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, with many sites offering demonstrations as well as the opportunity to purchase art. It is a great opportunity to talk to the professional artists and gain insight into the creative process.

This self-guided journey leads visitors through the scenic Whetstone watershed to over a dozen Artists Studios.

Each stop includes a diverse sampling of the breadth of innovative art and craft that make up this creative community.
