SCS Artwork to be highlighted at Shelburne Ponds Studio this weekend!

The SCS Art Department, Carin Lilly, Pete Boardman and Kathleen Caraher-Grant, is proud to announce that a large group of our students will be taking part in the Vermont Arts Open Studio Weekend, with their artwork being on display at Shelburne Ponds Studio this Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM - 5 PM.    Of course our student displays will be a highlight you won't want to miss - but we would also encourage families to take advantage of the opportunity to visit galleries all over the state - here is the information from the press release highlighting the weekend.


Bright yellow signs compete with a multitude of greens along Vermont's roads enticing visitors to the studios of craftspeople and other artists across Vermont during the 2017 Spring Open Studio Weekend taking place over May 27 & 28, Memorial Day Weekend.
Open Studio Weekend is a statewide celebration of the visual arts and creative process, offering a unique opportunity for visitors to meet a wide variety of local artists and craftspeople in their studios, and purchase high quality, hand made artwork.
The self-guided Open Studio tour features the work of glassblowers, jewelers, printmakers, potters, furniture makers, weavers, ironworkers, painters, sculptors, quilt makers and wood carvers. Many participating galleries will host gallery talks and feature special exhibits in conjunction with this event.
The Vermont Crafts Council publishes a free map booklet with directions to participating sites. The Vermont Open Studio Guide is available throughout the state at Tourist Information Centers, galleries and studios. It is also available on the VCC website, http://www.vermontcrafts.com. or by calling 802-223-3380.
The Vermont Crafts Council premiered Open Studio Weekend in 1993 to increase the visibility of artists and craftspeople in Vermont and to foster an appreciation for the creative process and the role that artists and craftspeople play in the vitality of Vermont's communities.
The Vermont Crafts Council is a non-profit organization serving the Vermont visual arts community. Open Studio Weekend is supported by the Vermont Arts Council, the Point Radio station and by the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing.
