VAULT (Visual Art Using Local Talent) is a nonprofit visual arts organization and Vermont State Craft Center. In a former bank space, complete with a vault, we serve the community as an educational resource with our schedule of workshops and lectures.
We serve our artist community by providing a marketplace for their work. Both the gallery and the gift shop carry only original, juried, handcrafted local and regional artwork. VAULT was established to encourage an appreciation of the visual arts while furthering the revitalization of downtown Springfield.

The Joy of Being
Gallery at the VAULT is delighted to present "The Joy of Being" a show of pop portraits by Mindy Fisher from now until February 26. The paintings are colorful, enchanting and fun.
Mindy will be presenting a selection of pet portraits, landscapes and a few other surprises in her Gallery at the Vault Show. Each piece was created in her cartoony pop art style with an eye-catching palette. A few scenes ranging from local Vermont and Greece, an obligatory cow, spunky Maine coon and some other unexpected creatures will be in the mix.
Most of these paintings are available for purchase.
Mindy has studied art from a young age including at the River Gallery Art School in Brattleboro, learned set design at Columbia College in Chicago, and has taught herself animation.
