We are happy to announce our inaugural season of Community Supported ART (CSArt). The program works just like a farm-share CSA, but instead of fresh, locally grown food, you receive creative, locally produced art! We’ll have two pick-up events here at Art of Vermont complete with refreshments, music, and the artists who produce the artwork.
The goals of the CSA program are to support artists and to create an engaged community of local arts supporters. CSA supports artists: in the creation of new work, to establish relationships with local collectors and patrons, and to participate in the launch of an exciting new model of art support and distribution. CSA Share member benefits include multiple works of art from local artists at a fantastic value! Additionally, CSA Members have the opportunity to develop relationships with the local artists and art community, discover new artists, explore a variety of disciplines and support artists’ careers and a vibrant community.
Art of Vermont is one of Vermont’s newest Vermont artisans’ galleries featuring fine craft and art produced by over 40 local artisans. Browse our selection of pottery, jewelry, woodworking, paintings, photography, glass, metal works and more.
Our region is home to so many talented artisans and we are thrilled to be able to provide a venue in Downtown Randolph for area residents and visitors to view and purchase the handmade treasures created in our own backyard.
Visit our gallery at 27 N Main Street in Randolph on Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11am to 5pm.
In March we are launching our featured artist program where we will showcase the work on one or two artists each month. Kicking off the program is Harlen Houghton of Rochester.
Harlen creates unique pieces of art he calls “Rusticks” which are made using found sticks and twigs. The sticks are meticulously arranged and placed in a handcrafted wooden frame behind frosted plexiglass. The finished pieces can be hung in a window or on a wall or can be freestanding. His pieces are beautiful and tranquil, and bring the natural beauty of Vermont indoors.
"There is a certain pleasure that comes with taking something familiar and making it new or unusual. This is how I look at a foggy or rainy day - the weather distorts the view into something different and perhaps more interesting." ~ Harlen Houghton
In addition to his Rusticks, Harlen has also started a line of children’s toys made from pieces of birch log and other reclaimed wood. See Harlen's work or visit Harlen's website for more information.
