BRATTLEBORO, Vt.: The Vermont Craft Council’s Spring Open Studio (Memorial Day) Weekend May 26-27 will include 12 artists in 10 studios and one gallery in Brattleboro, West Brattleboro and Marlboro. Of those artists, eight are members of Brattleboro-West Arts.
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 and talk to the professional artists who made it.
West Brattleboro – A two-woman show of paintings and sculpture by April Judd and Bev Larson has recently been installed in the foyer and other gallery spaces at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church. While each artist was featured in group shows during college and in their respective home states, this first major gallery show for them both continues through June 30.
The Arts Committee at All Souls invites the public to meet the artists at an opening reception from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 12. This gathering gives viewers a chance to enjoy both savory and sweet refreshments while discussing the creative process with Judd and Larson, who regard this collection as a history of their 13-year journey together. Both emerging artists, they fell in love with the unique and beautiful light and landscapes of Guilford, Vt., where they live and work as the Home Gnomes.
