fbIn 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.

Spring on the Passumpsic, Benjamin Barnes, 2016


A Group Show featuring works by NEK’s finest artisans

June 9 through July 28

Just as our own Passumpsic and Moose Rivers join in our lovely city, artisans of all callings will celebrate this primal, most necessary element.  We will be joined by the Passumpsic Valley Land Trust (https://pvlt.org). The PVLT is a volunteer organization working to preserve the beauty and ecological habitat of the Passumspic River and its watershed.
