West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park is a good place in Vermont to experience contemporary art – indoors and out.
Since 2001, thousands of visitors have enjoyed 3,400 square-feet of gallery space in Stowe showcasing 60 contemporary artists and an outdoor park dotted with large outdoor sculpture.
The 3.5 acre park is dotted with large trees and is bordered by the winding West Branch of the Little River, making it a beautiful place to visit and contemplate the sculpture on view.
“Sculpture is something that can draw you outside,” said curator Christopher Curtis. “It amplifies the changes in the seasons and the weather. A sculpture in snow looks different than it does in the springtime, different than it does in the rain or with fog behind it. It makes the outdoors more appealing in some way, because you notice it more.”
The gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and the sculpture park is open daily during daylight hours. There is no admission fee and visits are self-guided, with staff on hand in the gallery to answer questions during business hours. West Branch is located at 17 Towne Farm Lane, 1.5 miles outside of Stowe Village. Call (802) 253-8943 for more information.
