fbIn 2009, 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.

His photographs have appeared in numerous publications, including Audubon, National Wildlife, Vermont Life, and The New York Times. More than 20 books of his photographs have been published world-wide, including The Last of the Hill Farms, whose images are featured in this exhibition.
