WHAT: A pop-up art gallery focusing on Vermont Contemporary Art.
WHY: The Vermont Contemporary Art Space idea was hatched by Sebastian Sweatman after reading the Seven Days article (4/6/16) ‘Making Art Work for a Living‘, by Rachel Jones, Sadie Williams & Amy Lilly‘ and reflecting on his own efforts to get his paintings ‘out there’.
Specifically, the article identified a mismatch between the artistic creativity of Vermont, “Vermont has one of the highest percentages of artists per capita,” and yet, “ranks the poorest for art sales” as reported by the Vermont Arts Council. The goal of Vermont Contemporary Art Space is to close the gap!
HOW: Our strategy is to exhibit important works from committed Vermont contemporary artists. Let us know how we do.
