Photographers from 49 states and eight Canadian provinces submitted images in three categories: professional, amateur, and youth.

People’s United Bank

2 Burlington Square, Burlington, VT

CURRENT EXHIBIT:

Cindy Griffith, Hunger Mountain Art
January-March 2018

As an artist of nature and painting with a magical-realism style, I enjoy amplifying colors and textures to express my artistic impressions.  It may be landscape, a flower or a child in nature but it’s usually regarding nature.  My inspiration comes from the veins and contours of a lady’s slipper, the glistening splashes of sunlight suspended on the surface of a babbling brook, forest shadows and mountain sun.  Capturing special vignettes in nature is satisfying to my heart and representing this joy on canvas allows others to sample my inspiration of those moments.  People’s Bank – Burlington

 

 

 

 

Events:

FOFA- Festival of Fine Arts

Each year Art’s Alive dedicates the month of June to the Fine Arts. For almost three decades the Art’s Alive Festival of Fine Art has celebrated the visual art of Vermont residents with a Juried Exhibition hosted by Main Street Landing and is installed at the Art’s Alive Gallery in Historic Union Station at the foot of Main Street in Downtown Burlington. The Juried Exhibition is judged by two independent professionals in the field of visual arts who are not affiliated with Art’s Alive and three cash prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. An additional cash prize is presented to an Artist for winning the Roberto W. Fitzgerald Award. This prize is judged and awarded by Art’s Alive & the SEABA Board of Directors.
