The wildlife art is impressive . The Covered Bridges exhibit was informative. The exhibit that most struck me is the Native Amerian collection. Most of the pieces are from the West....Navajo and Hopi. Exquisite!

I want one of those coloured mooses for my backyard !! The spiral mobiles at around $1700 that were the property were very interesting.

We have been to this gallery twice, and will definitely go again. It has an absolutely amazing collection of wildlife art, as well as a world-class collection of art by and about Native Americans. Both collections have some of the best pieces we've seen anywhere,...More

We were not taken upon arrival at this center HOWEVER upon entering the building and paying, what we considered a very fair admission, only $8.00 per person we were immediately immersed by the galleries which were well lit and the artwork that was beautifully displayed....More

This art gallery is adjacent to the Covered Bridge Museum just off Vermont Route 9. We found the wood carving sculptures of birds on the first floor near the entrance to the Covered Bridge Museum quite interesting. The Elf Owl was just adorable. My friend...More

I think this reviewer has another organization in mind. This is a museum of paintings, sculpture and other fine works of art. And it's a great museum! To the best of my knowledge, there are no performances in this building.
