READSBORO >> Vermont Fall Open Studio Weekend, a statewide celebration of the visual arts and creative process, offers a unique opportunity for visitors to meet a wide variety of artists and craftspeople in their studios. Bright yellow signs will appear along Vermont's roads the first two weekends in October, guiding visitors to the studios of craftspeople and fine artists across Vermont during the 6th Annual Vermont Fall Open Studio Weekend Tour.
Readsboro Glassworks, the glassblowing studio of K. William LeQuier and Mary Angus, can be found in Readsboro, a small town in southern Vermont alongside the Deerfield River. Working together in the glass studio they built in a one hundred year old mill building in the village center, both artists create their own distinctive work. LeQuier's complex glass sculptures are powerful and fluid, capturing the harmonious and erratic forces found in nature, while Angus creates exquisite blown glass vessels with graceful forms and soft colors.
Mary and Bill will be welcoming visitors to their studio the first weekend in October on Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Glassblowing demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the weekend with handblown glass by Angus and glass sculpture by LeQuier on display and for sale.
Readsboro Glassworks is located at 6954 Main St., Rte. 100, (lower level), Readsboro. Map location #28. Look for the bright yellow signs directing visitors to the studio. For more information about Readsboro Glassworks, call 802-423-7706 or visit maryangusglass.com and kwilliamlequier.com
