Art & Music are ALIVE in Jeffersonville!

Jun 1, 2021 | Along the Byway

For over 100 years, the Jeffersonville/Cambridge area has been a magnet for landscape artists, because of it’s light. Musicians and authors have also been attracted to the natural beauty on display here.

One of two painted silos at the roundabout where Vermont Routes 15 and 108 meet in Jeffersonville. The artwork was commissioned by the Cambridge Arts Council.

Visions of Vermont on Main Street in Jeffersonville.

VISIONS OF VERMONT. Jane & Terry Shaw have made the arts in the Smugglers’ Notch area the centerpiece of their lives for the past 35 years. The wealth of knowledge behind each painting is as rich as the welcome they greet you with upon your visit to Visions of Vermont. Stroll through their three buildings where historic architecture meets the beauty of local landscapes.

Before ski lifts, there were logging trails. And these trails brought some of the first cross country and downhill skiers to northern Vermont in the 1920’s and 1930’s from Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. The history of skiing here has been captured by landscape painters for over one hundred years (see below). The Visions of Vermont Galleries feature over 50 contemporary and past master artists. On weekends in June and part of July there will be Art Demonstrations and Food Trucks at their 100 Main Street location in Jeffersonville, as part of “Jeffersonville Art Jam”.

The Legacy Collection at The Bryan Gallery.

BRYAN MEMORIAL GALLERY has become known as the go-to spot for the finest landscape art in New England. The gallery was founded as a non-profit by landscape artist Alden Bryan in 1984 in memory his wife Mary, a fellow artist, who passed in 1978. Since then, Bryan Memorial Gallery has become a vital partner to contemporary artists inspired by the New England landscape, and serves as a catalyst to the growth of the artistic spirit in our community and throughout New England.

Generations of artists have traveled to these mountains and valleys to capture in paint the beauty of the Vermont landscape.  Since 1984, the gallery has exhibited the works of these artists without interruption. Each season the gallery offers to all who come the chance to experience diverse, unique themes represented in art, with six to eight exhibitions shown throughout the year. The 2021 summer season will embody a Vermont-focused theme with our exhibitions “Iconic Vermont” and “Made in Vermont” on display from June 24th – September 6th.
