Winooski Circle Arts: A cooperative store

Winooski circle arts 41 Main Street Winooski VTWinooski Circle Arts is a cooperative store in beautiful downtown Winooski, Vermont. We feature the best in local art, artist made goods, home & personal accessories and comestibles.

As of Jan 15th Winooski Circle Arts will no longer be at our 41 Main Street location. Big changes in the tenancy of the Hall Keen building mean that we must move. We look at this as a good thing for Winooski - it's becoming more desirable as a culture destination and some wonderful, amazing local businesses are moving into the formerly empty storefronts. 

We are currently in negotions for a new retail venue in Winooski...fingers crossed. No spoilers, but it will be better and smaller. Stay tuned here or on our FACEBOOK page for updates. 

We are also actively forming our Cooperative. Again, details to be announced as they happen over the next couple of weeks...months. We are looking forward to this next phase of being a member owned entity, and we hope you are too.

Henry Jerome Washington and Sweetgrass Basket

Henry Jerome Washington with one of his gorgeous Sweetgrass Baskets, which he makes in the tradition passed down to him through generations of his family in South Carolina. The art and tradition of Sweet Grass basket making was brought over by enslaved people from West Africa, and still practiced today in South Carolina. We are more than pleased that Henry Jerome Washington is continuing this art in Winooski, with raw materials sourced and shipped by his family in S. Carolina.

Elizabeth Ciano. Grey, August 11.

8×10, gouache, watercolor, ink, graphite on paper. Elizabeth works in her studio in Vermont.

In addition to being an inspiring artist, Elizabeth is also an amazing retail space designer and curator. Weller, her former store on Church Street Burlington, VT, was one of the best. Simple, sophisticated and beautiful, Weller sold mid twentieth century home goods and accessories. We miss it.
