Looking for a creative outlet? Registration for this event is underway now through Jan. 4. The Vermont Crafts Council, which sponsors the Memorial Day Weekend event, seeks Vermont artists to participate. Open Studio Weekend 2013 will take place Saturday and Sunday, May 25 and 26 in locations throughout Vermont. Vermont visual artists and craftspeople, galleries, and educational sites are all encouraged to take part in this event. Vermont Open Studio Weekend cultivates authenticity in local artists. The Vermont Crafts Council produces the widely distributed Vermont Studio Guide, which contains maps, directions, and contact information about member participants. The Crafts Council also posts the same material on its website and supports all participants of Open Studio by producing wayfinder signs and posters that are given to participants at two professional development seminars. Membership and Open Studio registration forms and information are available at www.vermontcrafts.com.
