Founded in 1895, the T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier, Vermont houses a large permanent collection of artwork. In addition to the works of T.W. Wood and many of his artistic colleagues and contemporaries, we are also the repository for Vermont's portion of the Federal WPA collection.
Our mission is to preserve our artistic heritage and to bring the best of today's art to central Vermont. We currently have about thirty-six pieces from the Collection on view at the State House.
A lively center for all the Arts, we provide a venue for musical performances, a Summer Art Camp and a variety of lectures.
Rooms are available for rent for your event, presentation, meeting, or class. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the office at 262-6035 for further information. See the"Rent the Wood" and "In the Gallery" pages for a few images.
