ST. JOHNSBURY — StJ Art on the Street has opened its spring exhibit, featuring the work of several Vermont artists in storefront, sidewalk and indoor galleries along Railroad Street and Eastern Avenue.
StJ Art on the Street debuted during the pandemic when empty storefronts and shop windows were utilized as galleries, exhibiting works that could be enjoyed from the street or sidewalk. St. Johnsbury has maintained this walkable gallery while adding some indoor options in restaurants and businesses along the exhibit’s route.
Rosie Prevost and students from St. Johnsbury Academy’s Photography II class have work on display at 457 Railroad St. In this exhibit, she and students present a series of photographs created with analog cameras, shot on film, and handcrafted in a darkroom using traditional silver gelatin materials.

Printer and painter, Sheri Howe will also exhibit at 457 Railroad St. A native of California, Howe now resides in Hardwick. She is inspired by nature and uses that inspiration to tell stories in her block prints and paintings. Learn more about Howe’s work at sherihowe.com.
Community College of Vermont will showcase artwork by Northeast Kingdom students at 166 Eastern Ave. Curated by Cindy Swanson, the show features work by Art and Design students created during the current semester at CCV Newport.
