  • It is a fantastic gallery, showcasing a wide variety of styles and mediums. The gallery experience is very welcoming. I attended a two week seminar at the Vermont Raptor Academy, hosted by the Master of Raptor Sculpture, Floyd Scholz, which is housed in a dedicated and large studio space. I can't think of many things more rewarding, than making art with a great instructor, in a beautiful location.
