The Co-op Café
Our bright and airy café space is a great place to relax, meet others, and enjoy our cooperative community. You may sit and enjoy a food or beverage after purchasing it from the store, and we offer free wi-fi for those of you that need a place to work and connect. We have clean dishes, mugs, and utensils, plus a sink and microwave for customer use. We also regularly host meetings, events, and classes in the cafe, as well as a bi-monthly art display featuring work by local artists and photographers.
Co-op Art Gallery
What makes our Co-op Art Gallery different? Besides being located in a bright and busy hub of the community with lots of visitors, we feature only local artwork, and we take only minimal commission so that our featured artists retain 95% of the profit. Artwork makes a lovely gift, and buying local art also helps our creative community grow and flourish!
If you are a local artist and would like to display your work at the Co-op, please fill out this form and include a link to your portfolio, samples of your work, and an artist statement or bio.
May & June 2022: Paintings by Nick Piliero
“My name is Nick Cerullo Piliero. I grew up in the Bronx and Westchester, NY. I am 73 years young and have two boys – ages 17 and 19years old. I am have lived in Vermont for the past 26 years. My boys inspire me and help me to stay in the moment. I see, I feel, I paint. I don’t know how but I manage to paint every day. I do four to eight paintings a week! If you have not noticed, COLOR is my thing. I believe there is power and magic in color. I have sold numerous paintings all over the world, have been in NYC galleries, won stuff and all that but it is always my painting that I care about. I also donate paintings to the schools and places in my town. I worked with delinquent teens – I was one so it was the perfect job for me! Any other questions feel free to email me …inner peace, quiet mind to you! It is in the journey, not the destination! Keep happy, Nick.”
