Can’t make it to Paris, then let us bring it to you!

An exhibit of new paintings by Katharine Montstream featuring the Streets of Paris & the French countryside which she visited this past spring. Presented by SEABA.

L’art de Paris opens October 1-31, 2012 at The SEABA Center, 404 Pine Street, Burlington Vermont. An opening reception will be held on Friday, Oct 5, 5:00-8:00. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages provided.

“As much as I am a reluctant traveler, Paris was an extraordinary eye opener for me as a landscape painter. The city is so steeped in history, art and exquisite detail, it was beyond anything I could have imagined. As one who loves the chaos of the Vermont landscape, painting in Paris offered me an enormous challenge. The architecture, gardens set in perfect rows and meticulously pruned greenery inspired this new body of work.”

Gallery hours: Mon-Fri 9-5. Saturday’s 11-3. Visit & for more information.

Art Hop: September 7-9, 2012

For full information about the events and artists for 2012 follow these links:

Now in its 20th year, the South End Arts & Business Association has presented a remarkable exhibition of visual art, Vermont’s largest, the South End Art Hop.

SEABA encourages a greener way of transportation, with parking found at the Burlington Town Center in downtown and the Innovation Center on Lakeside. CCTA is offering free rides on the Pine Street Bus route, as well as shuttle service from ArtsRiot. Free valet for bikes will be located in front of the Maltex Building, Pine Street and at Maglianero’s Cafe, Maple Street.

The South End Art Hop is a three day event occurring on the weekend following the Labor Day holiday. It attracts over 30,000 visitors, the majority from outside Burlington. Visitors are attracted to the South End artist’s studios, and local businesses that are refit as art galleries and exhibition sites for the more than 500 participating artists. The event celebrates the unique characteristics of the Pine Street corridor, in particular the development of concentrated creative and artistic activity that has been established in numerous re-purposed factories and warehouses within the District. This corridor has been designated, and recognized, as the South End Arts District.

It takes hundreds of volunteers to make the Art Hop happen. Thank YOU!
