Vermont Open House logo

Vermont Spring Open Studio Weekend is a statewide celebration of the visual arts and the creative process in which Vermont artists and craftspeople invite the public to visit them in their studios.  Bright yellow signs appear along Vermont's roads over Memorial Day weekend, guiding visitors to studios of  craftspeople and fine artists across Vermont during the 2015 Open Studio Tour on May 23 and 24.

In the southwestern corner of Vermont near Manchester and Bennington, visitors can tour several clusters of studios, all within easy driving distance of Route 7.  East and south of Bennington is Readsboro, a tiny village surrounded by rugged mountains on Route 100 and home to Readsboro Glassworks, the glassblowing studio of K. William LeQuier and Mary Angus. Each makes their own distinctive work: LeQuier's complex glass sculptures are both powerful and fluid while Angus creates exquisite blown glass perfume bottles and vessels with graceful forms and soft colors.

Mary Angus and Bill LeQuier will be participating in the Vermont Open Studio Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, May 23 & 24, from 10am to 5pm. Stop in to see their latest work and watch one of the glassblowing demonstrations ongoing throughout the weekend. Look for the bright yellow signs!

For more information call 802-423-7706.  Additional information about Open Studio Weekend can be found online at www.vermontcrafts.com. The Vermont Studio Tour Guide is available by emailing a request to vt1crafts@aol.com.

Aurora IvyMary Angus creates objects that show the beauty of glass - its translucency, the way glass moves when it's molten, the effects of color, light, and shadow on a form. Her pieces show the beauty and fluidity of molten glass through the graceful curves and proportions of the blown vessel. She uses subtle relief or more sculptural carving to highlight the effects of light and shadow on the form.

"I especially love working with the perfume bottle form, I feel it is a very sensual piece, intimate in scale, a vessel meant to contain fragrance and evoke memories."
