Vergennes, Vermont is located on Route 22A in Addison County, 25 miles south of Burlington and 12 miles north of Middlebury. The City of Vergennes is Vermont's first incorporated city, making it the oldest city in Vermont. Vergennes is also the smallest city (by population) in Vermont.
The city was named for the Comte de Vergennes, French Minister of Foreign Affairs and negotiator of the Treaty of Paris. It was in Vergennes, on Otter Creek, where the fleet that would defeat the British on Lake Champlain was built and armed. A historic marker can be found on the east side of Otter Creek where the shipyard once was.
Vergennes is also home to the Basin Harbor Club, a summer resort where you'll find wholesome family fun, romance, and recreational sports for every conceivable type.
Northern Daughters is pleased to announce Grace Mellow: Not For Show. The exhibit features a selection of Grace Mellow’s more experimental figurative drawings and is on view at the gallery’s 221 Main St. location in Vergennes, Vermont from March 2nd through April 9th with an opening reception on March 10th from 5-8pm. This exhibit marks the start of Northern Daughters 2017 show calendar, and introduces a new body of work from Grace Mellow, created in New York City. Mellow uses gouache and pastel, plays with line weight and blocks of color to capture what feel like intimate and passing moments. “These drawings were never intended to be shown” says Mellow. She describes this body of work as “visual amusements, inspired by the burlesque and cabaret performers who sat for them - quirky individuals with a rare joie de vivre and a talent for remaining motionless for 20 minutes at a time.”
