About Shelburne Pond Studios: There’s a vibrant and supportive artists’ community and outdoor sculpture exhibit located on a farm and in a renovated dairy barn just across the road (Pond Road) from Shelburne Pond in Shelburne. When owners Katharine Stockman and Rad Romeyn bought the property in 2004 the barn had been sitting vacant for several years, except for hay in the loft and an antique tractor. The community started in 2010 when the owners began taking out the cow stalls one by one and replacing them with walls and doors, using recycled materials wherever possible. The first artists moved into their new studio spaces within several months of the beginning of construction. There are now 11 artists’ studios and 14 artists in the barn and a stone carving studio across the barnyard. The 14 artists in situ work in a variety of mediums; stone, glass, silk-screen, fiber, oil paint, acrylic, encaustic, wood, pencil, charcoal and more. Twenty large sculptures adorn the 12 acre property. All are for sale, are a variety of sizes and are in stone, steel, concrete and mixed media.
About Some Participating Artists:
“I simply carve whatever inspires me at the time, with ideas taken from dreams, photos, nature, humor and the stone.”
Stephanie Bush is represented by West Branch Gallery and Sculpture Park in Stowe, Vermont. Bush’s latest oil paintings feature local cows.
Wild Blossom Designs combines the traditional techniques of flower pressing and encaustic painting to create a botanical product line that illuminates the details of nature.
