En plein air painting in Vermont is alive, well and thriving. Vermont is the perfect subject for en plein air painting with its pastoral landscape, rolling hills, mountains, gentle and not-so-gentle waterways, eclectic and diverse architecture towns and cities and picture postcard, white picket fence villages. Craftsbury, VT is a great example of a beautiful working landscape and a stunning green on Craftsbury Common.

The Craftsbury Farmers Market will include all artists registering from this page, in promotions leading up to this event, at our website, and our Facebook page. Promotion may include a photo, biography, examples of artwork and links to your website and/or social media pages.
