Stately Victorian Home for Vermont Art

Atmospheric Victorian mansion is home to some of the finest of Vermont's artists, be they present or past. The display of the pieces work well in the charming spaces. This is an elegant place to see both the history of Vermont artist, and the directions contemporary Vermont artists are headed. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful Building, Wonderful Art

This is a community Art Center that goes way beyond its parameters. Housed in a grand Victorian house, the Center hosts work from over 200 Vermont artists. Twice yearly juried artist-member shows (Fall and Spring) and monthly juried featured artist exhibits in the four downstairs galleries(with the "stable" in the lovely upstairs rooms)keep things hopping at the Chaffee. This place will not disappoint.
