Deets studio in Brandon open this weekend


There are many secret artists’ studios tucked away in some of the most scenic places in Vermont. Open Studio Weekend is an opportunity to visit these private places where art is made, May 27 and 28, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at participating studios throughout the state. Maps are available online and at participating studios through the Vermont Crafts Council, vermontcrafts.com.

In West Castleton, Karen Deets, a stained glass artist, will welcome visitors to her private studio, tucked away near Glen Lake and Bomoseen State Park. 

Featured this year will be a collaboration of jewelry designed and made with her daughter, Shasta Fowler, with new fused glass shapes and the addition of beaded details. A cloud-themed group will incorporate some sand blasted detailing.

In the outdoor granite patio area, garden art will be featured. There will be a display of assorted sizes of panels, each with a story, and other smaller glass items. 

Learning and seeing how glass art is made will be the main focus. You are welcome to try glass cutting. Deets actively teaches workshops and is an instructor at the Community College of Vermont in Rutland and the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center in West Rutland. She is a member of two cooperative galleries: Brandon Artists’ Guild, Brandon and Epoch Artisans’ Gallery, Manchester.
