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.
