Event Details

The Northeast Kingdom of Vermont is extraordinary, and the artists who live and work here are as exceptional as the landscape. Their creativity is fed by natural beauty, peace and quiet, proximity to wildlife, and the everchanging seasons. Artists are inspired by a sense of place, and the results reflect the individuality of both the people and the region.

Caspian Arts members range from seasoned professionals to those who are at the beginning of their careers. Whether defined as fine art or craft, each artist’s goal is to move along his/her personal creative path, always seeking ways to express oneself in a unique and effective manner. Its members include painters, sculptors, fiber artists and multimedia artists as well as those who work in wood, metal, clay, papers, and other traditional craft media. 

Caspian Arts was formed in 2010 as part of the State of Craft project, an extensive research effort undertaken by the Vermont Craft Council. It became apparent that the hills surrounding Caspian Lake are brimming with talented and creative artists, highlighting the need for an organization that could support local artists while contributing to the effort to establish a lively and enticing art scene in the area. Nearly a decade ago, Caspian Arts premiered an annual summer Studio Tour that also leveraged a statewide momentum for local purchasing. Our regional arts community grew from there. 

Caspian Arts members reflect upon the beauty of our Northeast Kingdom through many types of media. Visitors can view each artist’s work on dedicated pages of the Caspian Arts website. Many members welcome visitors to their studios throughout the year and all welcome inquiries and interest in their work.
