"WE MET DURING OUR INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCY AT VSC"
The Vermont Studio Center
The Vermont Studio Center (VSC) is the largest international artist and writers residency in the United States. Every month for the past 25 years, VSC welcomes to Johnson, Vermont, over 50 sculptors, painters, installation artists, printmakers, photographers, muti-media artists, poets and writers from around the world. By providing studio, housing and meals, the artist is given the opportunity to concentrate fully on their work. The ability to step out of daily work habits and distractions and step into a supportive artistic community is an opportunity to re-evaluate work, make connections with other artists, and broaden experience of the world through art. The conversations that arise in these environments encourage new expression, and deepen the understanding of personal work. During these month long residencies, the residents have an opportunity to invite any of the Center’s distinguished Visiting Artists to meet personally with them in their studios to give counsel. VSC both supports individuals in their creative pursuits and provides the companionship and inspiration of creative peers and mentors.
