Founded in May 2009, EPOCH occupied the same previous location for 13 years before moving to an historic building on the main traffic circle in Manchester Center. The new location give EPOCH twice the exhibit space with a spacious main floor and a wide and open second floor mezzanine which overlooks the main level. The added display space has enabled EPOCH to expanded the number of artists and increase the variety of work presented.
A cooperative Gallery, EPOCH currently has 16 full time members who each work 2 days per month to staff and operate the business. In addition, it also exhibits work from more than a dozen carefully selected Guest Artists and Artisans providing an exciting and diverse array of artistic talent. Beginning outside the building , visitors will find large metal animal sculptures of traditional Vermont wildlife as well as a visiting brass flamingo. Within the gallery there is both 2 and 3 dimensional artwork - Fine Art paintings and prints, photography, stone and wildlife sculptures, decorative and functional ceramics, fine furnishings and lamps, stained glass and art glass, sterling silver jewelry with semiprecious gemstones, lamp work beads or fused glass enhancements, charcuterie boards and hand carved wooden bowls, decorative fiber arts and quilts, unique wearable art of silk jackets and scarves as well as hand knit clothing, accessories and throws, decorative metalwork and wall art of metal and antique barn board and so much more. EPOCH Artisans Gallery is a treat for the senses.
