Resident Artists

The Resident Artist Program

The resident artists of Montpelier Arts Center work in a diverse variety of media and styles. All are professional artists and several teach classes at Montpelier.

Artists work in their studios throughout the week; they have visiting hours for groups and/or individuals interested in purchasing their work or learning more about the artistic process. On a rotating basis, artists exhibit their work in the Center's Resident Artist Gallery.
