VERMONT ARTISTS WELCOME FALL VISITORS TO THEIR STUDIOS October 5-6, 2013, 10am-5pm
Vermont Fall 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. Over October 5 and 6 craftspeople and artists at 127 sites in every region of Vermont will open their studios to the public. Bright yellow Open Studio signs are posted along the roads to guide visitors to the studios. Visitors are offered a behind-the-scenes look at the workspaces of glassblowers, weavers, sculptors, potters, woodworkers, printmakers, jewelers, furniture makers, painters, quilters, and other makers.
In the southwestern corner of Vermont is Readsboro, a tiny village on Route 100 surrounded by rugged mountains and home to Readsboro Glassworks, the glassblowing studio of K. William LeQuier and Mary Angus. Each artist is known for 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 Fall Open Studio Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 5 and 6, from 10am to 5pm. Open Studio Weekend is an incredible opportunity to see Angus and LeQuier at work in their studio and gain an understanding of what goes into making a piece of handblown glass or glass sculpture. Many of their fine glass pieces will be on display and available for purchase and glassblowing demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the weekend.
Don't miss the opportunity to visit Readsboro Glassworks as well as the other local studios participating in the Vermont Fall Open Studio Weekend tour.
