West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park
Stowe

West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park is one of the best places in Vermont to experience art outside. Located in the bucolic ski town of Stowe, the indoor gallery and outdoor sculpture park is situated on the West Branch of the Little River. Since 2001, thousands of visitors have enjoyed 3,400 square-feet of gallery space showing 60 contemporary artists and a 3.5 acre park dotted with large outdoor sculpture. The Sculpture Park is located at the crossroads of the Stowe Recreation Path (a 5.5 mile long paved path for cycling, jogging, and walking) and Route 108 (Mountain Road), a scenic state highway that leads up to Mount Mansfield and Stowe Mountain Resort.

The sculpture park is curated by Vermont sculptor Christopher Curtis and showcases work by Richard Erdman, John Matusz, Chris Miller, Claude Millette, Karen Petersen, John Rubino, and David Stromeyer. Curtis, whose own sculpture is concerned with context and resonance, expertly selected and placed the selection on view at the sculpture park. The spectacular park is dotted with large trees and is bordered by the winding West Branch of the Little River, making it a beautiful place to visit and contemplate the sculpture on view.

“Sculpture is something that can draw you outside,” said Curtis. “It amplifies the changes in the seasons and the weather. A sculpture in snow looks different than it does in the springtime, different than it does in the rain, or with fog behind it. It makes the outdoors more appealing in some way, because you notice it more.”
