Who or What Is Included in the Vermont Art Guide?
The purpose of the Vermont Art Guide is to be a comprehensive resource for contemporary art in Vermont. New venues and artists are being added all the time. Existing venues that are listed are reviewed annually or as developments occur.
We recognize that ‘art’ and ‘contemporary’ have different meaning for different people. We draw a distinction between visual art, which is a material thing that expresses ideas, thoughts, and feelings, and craft, which is a material thing that incorporates function, form, and design within a particular medium.
We also draw a distinction between painting, print, and photography which function as a medium, meaning visual art which uses techniques to reproduce ideas, thoughts, and feelings and painting, print, and photography which functions as art, meaning the medium serves a larger purpose of expressing ideas, thoughts, and feelings.
Contemporary refers to the art of now. This means work by living, working artists who are selling or presenting work to art consumers and viewers.
We recognize these distinctions are debatable and possibly contentious. While our intention was not to cause debate, but rather to create a useful, meaningful guide or art consumers and viewers, we welcome dialogue on these issues.
