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 excited to present See You at the Lake, a solo exhibit of new work from Anne Cady. The exhibition is on view at the gallery’s 221 Main St. location in Vergennes, Vermont from July 13th through August 27th with an opening reception on July 21st from 5-8pm. Anne Cady is best known for her lyrical Vermont landscape paintings. Her work is characterized by luminous saturated color, simplified forms and strongly contrasting values depicting the open pastures, farms, hills and mountains of the Champlain valley. This show marks a departure from landscapes, shifting the focus to boats. Cady says “It has been a long time coming, 25 years in fact. I imagine for every painter there is an early painting that says, ‘Yes. You can do this. Go for it.’ The painting that gave me the go ahead to become a full time painter was one of rowboats by a dock. I have spent 25 years painting landscapes always knowing I would go back to boats.”
