There are many excellent art galleries to visit in Vermont. We had intended to check out the work of Pointe Claire artist Susanne Strater at Northern Daughters in Vergennes, and the work of Jane Davies at the Edgewater Gallery in Middlebury. Sadly, our visit did not coincide with gallery hours.
But we did make it to Bennington Potters, which has a self-guided tour available in their pottery-making facility.
