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.

Gallery at the VAULT is delighted to carry Vermont artist Chris Gluck’s beautiful and imaginative book, Art From Nature ABC's. This charming hardcover book with prints of animal images collaged from leaves is in an ABC format. The book's art inspires one to get out for a walk to collect from nature and includes collage instructions. It is suitable for children and adults alike as it fosters and celebrates a love of nature and teaches the alphabet with clever images of familiar and lesser known animals, fish, birds, crustaceans and reptiles. Art From Nature ABC's makes a great gift for a teacher, child, or a nature loving crafty friend. The book is printed in the USA.
