2 Great Shows, One Night in the South End!


Book Works Pic 3










We are excited to have two new exhibits opening this Friday for Art Map Burlington’s First Friday Art Walk!  In the SEABA gallery we have a new exhibit called “Book Works” and in RETM & VCAM we are displaying the art of three different artists: Jason Boyd, Jordan Douglas and Matt Gang.


Book Works at SEABA Gallery

Opening Friday, April 3rd from 5-8pm (more information here)

In Book Arts Guild of Vermont’s exhibit, “Book Works”  the artists redefine the normal concept of the book, using various mediums and techniques to construct or reconstruct pieces that tell a story, and can be ‘read’ in some way by the viewer.  A group of books altered by folding and manipulating pages represents the outcome of the guild’s monthly meeting program where members share skills and encourage creative work.  Other works represent the broad definition of the book as explored by painters, textile artists, and paper lovers.

Boyd, Douglas and Gang at VCAM/RETN 

Opening Friday, April 3rd from 5-8pm (more information here)

Jason Boyd, Jordan Douglas and Matt Gang are displaying their work at RETM & VCAM.  Jason Boyd is showing his latest wood and mixed media assemblages. He combines scrap and waste material from his woodworking business and old furniture parts to create original mixed-media art and an appropriated image or two.

Jordan Douglas presents his most current body of photographic work alongside selections of previous series.  Light and Grain is an ongoing study of composition punctuated by intense light.  The photographs reflect travels to the Shetland Isles, Paris, Rome and Cuba.

Matt Gang is an artist who works primarily in wood, stone, and wine corks.  Gentle curves, clean lines, and simple patterns combine to form a piece that is endlessly enjoyable to gaze upon.

We can’t wait to see you at the opening of the exhibits on Friday from 5-8pm!

SEABA & Speeders : Breaking Down the Walls, a new collaboration!


The on-going goal of SEABA is promoting the creative community and economic vitality of the South End of Burlington. SEABA in partnership with Speeder & Earls will take our community vision a step further by tearing down the walls and creating a coffee lounge in the SEABA Gallery at 404 Pine Street.

We plan to make the Gallery into a relaxed community meeting & gathering space surrounded by art and coffee. A place to come and relax on our couches, listen to local music, play games, free wifi, enjoy our curated exhibits, have quiet meeting space and just relax a bit longer while enjoying your Speeder & Earls coffee or tea.

This venture allows Speeders to expand in the South End. SEABA will maintain our office and curated exhibits. The community will benefit by having a wonderful community space in the South End. It will also allow for joint special events during the evening hours.

We need your help to accomplish this and achieve our goal for a grand opening ceremony on May 1st!

Please check out our GoFundMe!


And as always, Thank you for all your support!
