Burlington City Arts curates art exhibits at the airport in three areas: the Skyway, the area above the escalator and on 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 look around!

In December, the Skyway and the Gates feature black-and-white landscape photography by Gary Hall and watercolors by Maurie Harrington.

During January and February in the Skyway, Carolyn Shattuck presents her mixed-media collages on paper. The printmaker, book artist and painter makes multicolored, layered abstractions influenced by the history and beauty of Japanese prints. In the Gates 1-8 area, Casey Blanchard shows her monoprints, notable for their natural elements and painterly layering of color.

For all three months, Elizabeth Nelson's acrylic abstract paintings can be seen 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 of these artists live in Vermont. Please enjoy examples of their work at the airport and on their individual websites.

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

En décembre, les photos noir et blanc de paysages de Gary Hall et les aquarelles de Maurie Harrington orneront le Skyway et le secteur des portes.

En janvier et en février, les collages sur papier de Carolyn Shattuck, réalisés au moyen de techniques mixtes, seront présentés dans le Skyway. Cette graveuse, artiste du livre et peintre se spécialise dans les œuvres abstraites multicolores, en couches superposées, qui s'inspirent de l'histoire et de la beauté des estampes japonaises. Dans le secteur des portes 1-8, place aux monotypes de Casey Blanchard, qui se caractérisent par leurs éléments naturels et leurs combinaisons de couleurs résolument picturales.

Pendant les trois mois, les peintures abstraites à l'acrylique d'Elizabeth Nelson seront exposées au-dessus de l'escalier mécanique. Si vous montez, ne manquez pas de vous retourner pour regarder le mur derrière vous. Mais faites attention à la marche!

  • Explore Hidden Wilderness Along the Burlington Wildways

    You might not realize it from the hustle and bustle of downtown, the postwar suburban sprawl of the New North End, or the hip postindustrial South End, but Burlington is pretty wild. Like, Henry David Thoreau/Walden Woods kind of wild. Despite its urban trappings, Vermont's largest city hides a treasure trove of natural wonders. The trick is knowing where to find them.

  • Get a Taste of Vermont at the Burlington Farmers Market

    "Farmers market" and "Vermont" are basically synonyms, right? The Green Mountain State is known for its cheese, its maple and its dedication to local food. And in Vermont's largest city, the Burlington Farmers Market is a community fixture. A trip to the market is a weekend ritual all season long.
