InView Center for the Arts at the Landgrove Inn: Our Story
January 19, 2015
Nobody Remembers Their Best Day of Watching Television …
In 2007, Tom and I founded InView Center for the Arts to provide as ideal a workshop environment as possible for artists, writers, and craftspeople of all competency levels to create, exhibit, and learn.
What we envisioned was a one-stop, self contained, creative “campus” that was comfortable, convenient, inspiring, and well managed, to afford instructors and attendees the maximum amount of time to focus on their work without worrying about commuting to class, finding good food, packing up gear, or feeling isolated and alone after class. Eight years later, we feel that our mission has been realized.
Situated on 32 pristine country acres in the National Forest area of south-central Vermont, InView Center for the Arts at the Landgrove Inn will host 26 workshops in 2015, introducing five NEW nationally-renowned instructors from around the world. The Inn, originally a dairy farm built in 1810, has 19 uniquely-decorated guest rooms, an award-winning dining room, a comfy lounge and parlor for down time with other students and the instructor, an outdoor pool, tennis courts, hiking trails, countless activities for tag-a-longs not attending a workshop, and a terrific, 50’x30’, beautifully-lit studio located right behind the Inn, overlooking an idyllic pond.
As hard as students work while attending our workshops, many consider their time spent here a vacation and invaluable experience as well. No one that we’re aware of remembers their best day of watching television as fondly.
