Resident Artists

The Resident Artist Program


Montpelier Arts Center has resident artists who work in a diverse variety of media and styles. All are professional artists and several teach in the class program 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.
