Vermont Artisan Designs
because art matters vermont (bam vt) is about to make our first gallery presentation through the blog! it is the beautiful gallery Vermont Artisan Designs at 106 main st in brattleboro. the stunning interior just seems to invite you to absorb the amazing colors and art that abound on every shelf and wall.
you will find functional and decorative work from well-established and emerging artisans. the gallery features a full range of media from paintings–representational to abstract, sculpture, paper, metal, mixed media, stone, and glass. no gallery would be complete without a full compliment of pottery; fiber–wearable and decorative; carefully turned salad bowls; exquisitely finished furniture, as well as a great selection of Judaica, kaleidoscopes, chimes, and photographs that capture the essence of Vermont.
