Although first established in 1952, this museum has deep artistic roots dating back to 1922. The first exhibition of the Southern Vermont Artists was held by five local artists, eventually known as The Dorset Painters. Since their incorporation in 1933, the Southern Vermont Artists have been comprised of visionaries such as Norman Rockwell, Luigi Lucioni, Grandma Moses, and Ogden Pleissner. Now, this center remains as a community space where artists can come together to share their creations and learn from each other.
