FOCUS ON NORTHERN VERMONT
rom Lake Champlain to the Green Mountains and across its valleys, visitors who seek Vermont’s natural beauty are often surprised—and always delighted—to discover a thriving and dynamic cultural landscape. There are more galleries, museums, and performance spaces than ever before. It’s not surprising that so many artists, musicians, performers, and writers make Vermont their home. It’s as if there’s something in the air that invites creativity. The light, the landscape, and the seasonal changes conspire to make magic. Yet no matter where you’re from, Vermont is a destination that feels like home as soon as you arrive. While the sense of place and tradition that calls to our imagination is still there, Vermonters are making products with a sophistication of style, design, and taste that appeals to the modern traveler. Look for the fascinating stories behind companies like Telescopes of Vermont, Shelburne Vineyards, and Jasper Hill Farm, who have created products with that cachet of quality Vermont is known for. And look to the artists and artisans, the galleries and museums for both timeless, traditional gifts and contemporary classics. The Artisans Hand Craft Gallery in downtown Montpelier is a designated Vermont State Craft Center. This distinction is given to a select few galleries that meet strict standards for quality and diversity. This fall Artisans Hand celebrates thirty-five years of existence promoting Vermont’s fine contemporary crafts. Its collection ranges from clay and fiber through gold
