Canal Street Art Gallery

Canal Street Art Gallery

Keeping 3rd Fridays in Bellows Falls alive with Meet the Artists nights throughout COVID, Canal Street Art Gallery offers LIVE Meet the Artist nights. The Vision for Canal Street Art Gallery is to provide a space for our community to exhibit, appreciate, create, sell, and buy art. Representing contemporary artists in all mediums and styles, they offer an open space where all creative voices may be heard. Canal Street Art Gallery hopes to honor and be a part of the journey creative peoples have been taking in this place for thousands of years, and to join in the modern efforts to create a Free Art Community here in Rockingham.

The Canal Street Art Gallery was founded in March of 2017 as an Ad Hoc Art Gallery by three artists, who saw a need for a centralized and active location for creating and sharing art in the Town of Rockingham, Vermont. Rockingham includes the Villages of Bellows Falls, Saxtons River, Cambridgeport, and Bartonsville.

The Canal Street Art Gallery is located in the Bellows Falls Downtown Historic District, on the Mary Exner Block, which was restored in 2000. The Block offers 10 artist Iive/work spaces and 6 retail spaces, and is home to RAMP (Rockingham Arts & Museum Project) and Project Space 9, RAMP’s non-profit exhibition space.

VT420 Tours

Book a tour today! A VT420 Tour is a walking historical and educational tour around cannabis and CBD.

Tours begin at high noon and end at 4:20 p.m. at the Bellows Falls train station and include lunch, water, rolling contest materials, and an autographed copy of Lizzie Post’s “Higher Etiquette,” which is a social guide for the post-prohibition era of cannabis.

Past tours have taken folks on the Hetty “Heady” Green tour to learn about the famous “Witch of Wall Street,” and visit her gravesite in the Immanuel Episcopal Church cemetery. Other Vermont 420 tours included lunch at the Moon Dog Cafe with visits to the Fish Ladder and Nature Museum while learning the history of the canal.

VT 420 Tours

Past speakers have been Lizzie Post at the Village Square Booksellers with the signing of her book, “Higher Etiquette;” local growers and CBD distributors at the Flat Iron, now Coop; and a glass-blowing demonstration by Sherwin Art Glass at 33 Bridge St.

At the beginning of each tour, owner Deb Fox goes over the cannabis laws in Vermont. Throughout the tour, she refers to Emily Post’s great-great granddaughter Lizzie Post’s book, “Higher Etiquette, a Guide to the World of Cannabis, from Dispensaries to Dinner Parties.”

For the hands-on portion of the tour, there are gravity bong demonstrations and rolling contests. These sessions are typically followed by lunch locally and the downtown tour. Everyone receives a goody bag with cannabis related items.

A participant of the tours, Linda from Connecticut, said, “We loved Bellows Falls and the tour and we’ll definitely come back.”
