Gallery at the VAULT
(Visual Art Using Local Talent) is a nonprofit organization and Vermont State Craft Center. We serve the community as an educational resource with our schedule of workshops and lectures. We serve our artist community by providing a venue for their work. Both the gallery and the gift shop carry only original, juried, handcrafted local and regional artwork.
VAULT is a non-profit visual arts organization established to encourage an appreciation of the visual arts while furthering the revitalization of Downtown Springfield.
We serve the community by offering opportunities for learning and participation in the creative process, and providing a marketplace for artists.
In October of 2000 downtown Springfield, Vermont faced the grim statistic of having 40% of its stores empty. With the closing of yet another store on Main Street, Nina Jamison with help from Alison Wallace decided to take a cue from what was working in other Vermont towns and use the excitement that art creates to improve morale and perception. The vision of a revitalized downtown using art as a catalyst for change had its beginning in this first simple idea – Gallery at the VAULT is the result.
