EXPLORE OURPermanent Collection

SVAC’s Permanent Collection highlights the contributions of the original founders of the Southern Vermont Artists, Inc., a collaborative of regional artists, businessmen and women who supported the arts and culture in Southern Vermont in the early 20th Century.

The idyllic setting of the rural Vermont landscape offered a transformative experience and opportunity for artists seeking to work outside the social, political, and economic changes of the Modern Era. The Collection is made up of over 1,000 objects including paintings, etchings, and sculptures and spans across a significant period in Regional American Art History. The Collection features many prominent 20th Century artists such as: Ogden Pleissner, Jay Hall Conaway, Reginald Marsh, Guy Pene du Bois, Lorenzo Hatch, Luigi Lucioni, Arthur Gibbs Burton, and Robert Strong Woodward.
