It's a NEW year and we have NEW plans for summer events!

Ninth Annual

Caspian Arts Studio Tour

Sunday

July 21, 2019

11:00 am to 6:00 pm

Greensboro, Hardwick, Craftsbury, West Glover, Albany

Our annual Studio Tour will be held on Sunday, July 21 this year and will offer a day of exploration, fun and education for both the artists and visitors!

Those who visit the studios will have an opportunity to see the creative life up close and personal: the work space, the tools used, the source of inspiration and how the art progresses from raw material to finished piece. Artists are always happy to talk about their work and answer questions. They feel honored by your interest and will be grateful for your visit.

Enjoy a day of discovery

Take home an enticing piece of art or craft!

A Little Information About Caspian Arts

Caspian Arts exists to support and promote the artists and craftspeople who live and work in the area around Caspian Lake. It is our goal to introduce the public to the surprisingly diverse art in the area. Visitors will discover interesting personalities and amazing creativity hidden in plain view in main street studios, housed in barns, both large and small, or tucked away at the end of an intriguing driveway or a charming country lane.

Several Caspian Arts members exhibit and sell their work in galleries around the country, but you can visit their studios right here and support the local economy. A drive down a shaded dirt road will bring you to a weaver who will demonstrate this ancient craft. Discover mirrors with frames that preserve and highlight the special character of local wood, photographs and paintings featuring Northeast Kingdom iconic scenery, wall quilts made "by hand" on the machine, and jewelry to enhance any outfit.

This is a unique opportunity to savor the talent that dwells among us!
