More than 250 Vermont artists will be exhibiting their works this weekend as part of the twelfth annual Open Studio Weekend. The event guides visitors to the studios of potters, blacksmiths, photographers, painters, glassblowers, weavers, carvers, and other artists and craftspeople. Vermont Crafts Council Executive Director Martha Fitch says the event has grown steadily in recent years.
In the town of Lowell, Sam Thurston and his wife Marjorie Kramer will be opening their home and studio. Thurston says that even though he and Kramer have lived in the area for decades, some neighbors have never seen their work.
