Stone Valley Arts is a 501(c)3 non-profit community arts organization which began in 2013 as a response to community needs as part of the Poultney 2020 revitalization movement. Dedicated residents came together to launch SVA, and in turn received official non-profit status on July 23, 2014.
The purpose of Stone Valley Arts is to provide classes, workshops, presentations, and events in the visual, performing and literary arts for all ages and levels of experience. Our goal is to inspire interest, participation and provide enjoyment, enriching the quality of life in the region by integrating the arts into the fabric of the community.
Stone Valley Arts develops and sponsors art activities and programs in the region around Poultney, Vermont. Our first home, thanks to the generosity of Chuck Colvin, was at the Journal Press Building.
In 2016, we found our second home at Fox Hill (145 E. Main Street, Poultney) thanks to our partnership with the Vermont Preservation Trust. Formerly the Fox Hill Center for the Arts, the building was donated to the Preservation Trust of Vermont by sisters Rita Fuchsberg and Irene Minkoff in late 2015.
