In 2003, with an eye toward expanding its showcase of Vermont artists, the Guild doubled its retail space and added a gallery room called The Backroom Gallery for special exhibits. We invite Vermont’s most talented artists and crafts folk to exhibit their work in one-person or collaborative shows. These special shows are publicized and reported in area newspapers, websites, community calendars and via the Guild’s vast email and postal mailing lists. We host Artist receptions with a fine selection of food and drink to welcome the public to the newest exhibit. Gallery shows run for approximately 6 weeks.

brings you an enchanted water wonderland
Wild, Wet & Wonderful!
New Works by Rachel Laundon
5 March to April 17, 2018
Break the Ice & Come Fishing in St. J’s new Aquarium
In Our Back Room Gallery
Making a debut will be Merfolk, a series of fishpeople inspired by a blend of nautical lore, playful gender roles w/a dash of hipster thrown in.
Rachel Laundon is a Vermont mixed media sculptor living in Waterbury, Vermont, originally from Danville, this is a homecoming, and she’s bringing a bounteous catch of the day. Maybe growing up near Joe and Molly’s Pond did it as Rachel began making art of all kinds as a kid. “Creativity is like water, when I am in a flow state of artmaking it is like I’m riding the best wave. Fish are an endless inspiration to me.”
A Quacking good debut will be made by the Darin Ducklings, altered decoys to spread joy that a laughing gull would envy.
Also Catching the wave are fantastic fish masks hot dogging in from the slopes at Stow to our gallery on the banks of the Passumpsic
Put on your Best Fishing Gear, come down & cast your line for the best fish in town!
We are Open Mon-Sat 10:30 – 5:30
