Epoch – 18 Vermont Artisans Gallery
our second featured gallery is Epoch – 18 vermont artisans in manchester, vt. a relatively new gallery on the scene, about 5 years old, epoch is a cooperative art and craft gallery–it is operated, staffed, and managed by its member owners. what does that mean for you? a delightful experience because you will be greeted by one of the artists who is both a member of the gallery and knowledgeable about all the artists and their work, thus offering a unique view of the creative process.
here are a couple examples of the work of member artist, lucy bergamini, a very well know glass artist here, who just happens to live in our town of pawlet, vt:
Currently, the gallery represents: Lynn Adams, Lucy Bergamini, Nobushi Fuji’i, Bob Gasperetti (previously featured in this blog so scroll down), David Gessner, Jen Herzer, Jody Halliday, Highbeams–trenny robb & bob michaud (also previously featured in this blog–yes, scroll down), Johnny Hinrichs, Ellen Howard, Peter Huntoon, Margaret Miller, David Munyak, Sandra Owens, Nicholas Seidner (yet another featured artist in this blog! yep, down again.) and Jennifer Violette. obviously good taste by both the gallery and this blog!!
some of the other work available at the gallery includes wood artists david munyak & guest artist john long, and long-time member ellen howard:

you will find most media available at the gallery: wood, glass, jewelry, fiber, clay, photography, sculpture, blacksmithing, stained glass, watercolors, wood pens, fine furniture, and more. the gallery has clean, spacious lines. there is never a cluttered feeling so you can fully experience each work of art you encounter.
epoch also features guest artists for a 3 or 4 month period of time. currently the gallery is featuring: john long, jon olsen, steve bronstein, leslie koehler, and gary starr.
