Katharine Montstream Gallery Now Open in Downtown Burlington

Posted By on Wed, Jun 12, 2013 at 5:54 PM


It was just a couple weeks ago that we reported Silver Maple was moving on — that is, closing up the retail shop on St. Paul Street across from Burlington City Hall Park, and moving its still-popular art-lamination business to PhotoGarden in South Burlington. In that article, Megan James noted that local artist Katharine Montstream would be moving in.

Well, she did. So quickly that the address still hasn't changed on her website from 1 Main Street.

Montstream credits her husband, Alan Dworshak, with quickly transforming the one-room space. I happened to walk by this afternoon and was surprised to see the doors thrown open, with a beautifully appointed gallery exposed.

The walls have been repainted a chocolate brown, Tuscan gold and a robin's egg blue, and an office/framing area is corralled in one corner with barnboard half-walls. The whole effect is just as pleasing to the eye as Montstream's pretty landscape paintings.

This Saturday, patrons of the farmers market will have one more place to stop, browse and perhaps buy.
