Today "From Vermont's Forests" debuts at Frog Hollow Gallery in Burlington, VT. It's a group exhibit by 14 members of the Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers. These artisans have created furniture using lumber from Vermont forests for inspiration and I know you will love it!
Believe it or not, there are more than 50 species of trees growing in Vermont's green mountains. The Guild's exhibit will demonstrate the beauty of this local harvest and the creative designs that grow from it.
You can catch them all at Frog Hollow during the entire month of June and/or visit them individually in the artisan's workshops (here is a map). Here's a sneak peek of what's available now or talk to them about your own unique custom artisan piece– an investment that will carry your legacy forward, through many generations of your family.
The Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers is an association of master level furniture makers dedicated to the promotion of quality craftsmanship, excellence in design, and the pursuit of artistic vision. Their goal is to increase public awareness and appreciation of this time honored art.
