Vermont Artisan Designs

Fine art and contemporary American craft.

Vermont Artisan Designs is grateful for 50 years of service to the American art and craft community and their collectors. A variety of activities at the gallery and our hometown of Brattleboro, VT, are ongoing.

As we move into June, the first Friday of the month brings Gallery Walk to life in Brattleboro. Live music in the Harmony Parking lot, pop-ups along Elliot Street, and openings at more than 20 galleries throughout the downtown make this an event to be enjoyed. Gallery hours are extended until 8:30 p.m. during Gallery Walk.

At Vermont Artisan Designs, new work by Robert Steinem and H.M. Saffer II will be featured. Steinem, a new member of the Copley Society in Boston, and Saffer both paint in oils. Steinem’s detailed work often captures reflections in both nature and cityscapes. Saffer’s style is pointillistic and most often features landscapes.

Piano stylings by Peter Skolnick will be offered from 6 to 7 p.m. on the gallery’s Yamaha baby grand or the Ludwig dainty grand.

Jewelry by Ed Levin Designs, Ann D. Kearney, Daryl Storrs and Bruce Baker will provide good inspiration as gifts for loved ones. You’ll also find blown glass by Josh Simpson, Janet Zug, Simon Pearce  and Robert Burch; turned wooden bowls by Alan Stirt, Andrew Pearce and Rockledge Farms; pottery by Matt Tell, Liz Saslaw, Jim Schneider and Kris O’Neill; oil lamps by Danforth Pewter; wrought iron by Steven Bronstein; and much, much more to feast your eyes on in both the upstairs and main level galleries.

We invite you to visit when you’re in Brattleboro.
