Art at the Airport (Spring 2013) 

  • Galen Cheney's “Via della Spada”

Version français

Burlington City Arts curates art exhibits at the airport in three areas: the Skyway, the area above the escalator and the walls facing security for Gates 1-8. Whether you’ve arrived early for a flight or are waiting to pick up passengers, do take the time to have a look around!

In March and April at Gates 1-8, you’ll see giclée prints of original watercolor and airbrush paintings by Kevin Ruelle (right), made to look like vintage Vermont posters. Along the Skyway are Tod Gunter’s aviation-themed illustrations (above). Galen Cheney’s large-scale abstraction, a three-part, oil-on-panel work titled “Via della Spada,” will be installed above the escalator through May (below).

Ruelle is an eclectic artist, creating everything from landscape paintings on canvas to architectural drawings to cartoons. He lives in Burlington. Gunter, whose highly realistic, digitally created profiles of vintage aircraft are quite apropos at the airport, is an illustrator and industrial designer living in Stowe. Cheney, whose recent paintings are inspired by graffiti and urban culture, is a Middlesex resident. Please enjoy examples of their work here and on their individual websites.

L’Art de l’Aéroport (le printemps 2013)

Burlington City Arts organise des expositions à trois endroits dans l'aéroport : le Skyway, l'espace qui se trouve au-dessus de l'escalier mécanique et les murs faisant face au poste de sécurité des portes 1 à 8. Que vous soyez arrivé à l'avance pour prendre votre vol ou que vous attendiez des passagers, prenez le temps de regarder autour de vous!

En mars et avril, aux portes 1 à 8, vous pourrez voir des estampes numériques d'aquarelles et de peintures aérographiées originales de Kevin Ruelle, qui reproduisent d'anciennes affiches du Vermont. Dans le Skyway sont exposées des illustrations de Tod Gunter sur le thème de l'aviation. L'œuvre  abstraite de Galen Cheney, un triptyque à l'huile intitulé Via della Spada, sera installée au-dessus de l'escalier mécanique jusqu'en mai.

Kevin Ruelle est un artiste éclectique dont les travaux vont des paysages sur toile aux dessins d'architecture en passant par les illustrations humoristiques. Il vit à Burlington. Rod Gunter, dont les profils très réalistes d'anciens avions, créés par technologie numérique, cadrent bien avec le décor de l'aéroport, est un illustrateur et un designer industriel de Stowe. Galen Cheney, dont les tableaux récents sont inspirés des graffitis et de la culture urbaine, habite à Middlesex. Vous trouverez des exemples de leurs œuvres dans nos pages et sur leurs sites Web.

    Summertime visitors to Burlington inevitably turn their eyes to Lake Champlain. Its sparkling waters invite all kinds of aquatic activity and reflect — to stunning effect — candy-colored sunsets.
