Duet Vase Michelle Holzapfel.jpg Self-described as possibly the most eclectic group of artists ever to share a six-mile radius, the Brattleboro-West Arts Group wants to open their doors to the public for the second consecutive year.

This studio tour invites guests to witness a rug being braided, a block of wood become a vase, or a blacksmith forge a weathervane. Alongside these artists will be potters, glass blowers and textile artists. And don't forget the landscape artists and abstract painters and more.

The artists will exhibit and sell their art, but also encourage their visitors take their time in each studio, chatting, asking questions and watching them work. The tour runs Sept. 25-26, and coincides with the beginning of the fall foliage season, as well as, the peak of apple picking time - all very good reasons to visit the Green Mountain state this weekend.
