Art Of Vermont Jury Guidelines

Application process

Applicants should complete our online artist application and submit a minimum of three images representing the work they intend to display in the store.

Artists will be notified via email.

Quality of Work

As our goal is to showcase the talents of our local artist community, the Coop’s focus will be on providing for sale original works of art and craft made by hand by individual artists and craftspeople residing in Vermont with primary emphasis on artisans working and living in the White River Valley area and Central Vermont. All work should be the original design of the artisan and the finished products should exhibit more than just technical proficiency, they should reflect the personal aesthetic and creativity of the creator.
