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, you'll find abstract paintings by John Gonter adorning the Skyway, followed by the more mystical canvases of Brooke Monte in May.

Passengers arriving or departing from Gates 1-8 will be greeted by the extraordinary paintings of Nissa Kauppila, who explores birds in flight in her stark-yet-delicate gouache works. In May, the same area will present Donna Bourne's soft-focus landscapes and ethereal "reflections" paintings.

Finally, for all three months, Teresa Ekasala's brilliantly colored abstract paintings will hang over the escalator. If you're going up, be sure to turn around and look at the wall behind you. But watch your step!

All these artists live in the Burlington area. Please enjoy examples of their work at the airport and on their individual websites.

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!

Dans le Skyway, vous pourrez admirer l'art abstrait de John Gonter en mars et en avril, puis les toiles plus mystiques de Brooke Monte en mai.

Aux portes 1 à 8, les passagers pourront apercevoir les œuvres exceptionnelles de Nissa Kauppila, qui explore le mouvement des oiseaux en vol dans ses gouaches à la fois austères et délicates. Au même endroit, en mai, seront exposés les paysages très doux et les réflexions éthérées de Donna Bourne.

Et pendant tout le trimestre, les magnifiques œuvres abstraites colorées de Teresa Ekasala seront exposées au-dessus de l'escalier mécanique. Si vous montez, n'oubliez pas de vous retourner pour regarder le mur derrière vous – en prenant soin de ne pas tomber!

Tous ces artistes vivent dans la région de Burlington. Vous trouverez des exemples de leurs œuvres à l'aéroport et sur leurs sites individuels.1) John Gonter, Gonteria 2) Nissa Kauppila, Untitled No. 33 3) Donna Bourne, Harbor Reflections 4) Teresa Ekasala, Release 5) Brooke Monte, Bluebird Levee

    A Ferris wheel towers over the Champlain Valley Exposition, its steel spokes illuminated by gyrating patterns of multicolored neon lights. Aromas of fried dough, cotton candy, beer and straw bales intermingle in the languid summer air. Sunburned teens in tank tops and jean cutoffs snap selfies along the midway while one of their friends in a baseball cap hurls sidearm pitches at a dunk tank, trying to douse a heckling clown.
