Rock River Artists Open Studio Tour Frog Meadow New England's Best All Male Gay Resort in Southern Vermont

The Rock River Artists will be opening our homes and studios once again as we invite visitors to view our creative processes, purchase artwork, and interact directly with us, the artists.

Get a behind-the-scenes look into the unique locations where each artist’s work is made. Take a trip through our rural villages — visit rustic studios down county lanes, or high up in the hills with spectacular views; visit studios with lush gardens and landscaping; and studios tucked away in the woods, or along the river’s edge — and see how and where art is made in Vermont.

his self-guided tour begins 3 miles from Frog Meadow in picturesque South Newfane. For most visitors, the draw of Rock River Artists Studio Tour is the unique alchemy that results when you have 20 world-class artists living within a 12-mile radius!

When these artists open their homes, gardens and studios to the public for the weekend, the experience is comfortably intimate. Though this is a tour, participants are not treated like tourists: everyone is invited in as a back-door neighbor. And while the tour includes many artists whose works regularly appear in big-name galleries and museum collections, that is not the point here. A museum visit resembles Rock River the way a display of stuffed lions resembles a safari.

The art in its native habitat, much of it in progress, still pulses with the ideas, emotions and other mysterious forces that originally called it into being. So come be a “neighbor” and check out the Rock River Artists Open Studio Tour!
