Bringing Fine art and performance to Southern Vermont

The Laumeister Art Center is a comprehensive arts center featuring multiple galleries,  permanent Native American exhibits,  a Covered Bridge Museum,  art studios and a 315-seat proscenium theater. Located within 30 minutes of Troy,  New York;  Williamstown, Massachusetts;  and Manchester, Vermont, and just two miles from Bennington's scenic Main Street,  the Laumeister Art Center is in an ideal location that makes it easy for New England residents and visitors to explore and enjoy the natural and cultural arts in Southern Vermont. 

On December 11, 2017, Southern Vermont College accepted the donation of the center, offered by Bruce Laumeister and Elizabeth Small. Bruce, Elizabeth, Shirley and the entire staff have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know so many wonderful artists and patrons and have truly appreciated the support over the past 24 years.

Southern Vermont College's goal is to maintain the center as a locus of the arts community. They will be announcing the 2018 schedule of art shows and events  soon so please check back.
