Burlington City Arts curates art exhibits in three areas of the airport: 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 look around!

In December, the Skyway features abstract paintings of vines and vegetables from artist Mary Hill, and Kate Longmaid's floral still lifes, on view in the Gates, are inspired by the beauty of Vermont. Kathryn Wiegers' painted murals, which she calls "studies of nature and mankind," appear by the escalator through the end of March. If you're going up, be sure to turn around and look at the wall behind you. But watch your step!

Through January and February, Gabrielle Tsounis' travel-inspired exhibit, "Down to Earth," appears in the Skyway, showcasing a bird's-eye view of nature as art. (Her work is based on photos taken from an airplane's window seat.) Karen Henderson's mixed-media textiles, which seek to connect self, place, emotion and time, are mounted in the Gates.

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, dans le Skyway, vous pourrez voir les toiles abstraites de Mary Hill, qui évoquent la vigne et les légumes, et, dans le secteur des portes, les natures mortes florales de Kate Longmaid, inspirées de la beauté du Vermont. Les peintures murales de Kathryn Wiegers, qu'elle appelle « études de la nature et de l'humanité », se trouvent près de l'escalier mécanique jusqu'à la fin de mars. Si vous montez, ne manquez pas de vous retourner pour regarder le mur derrière vous. Mais faites attention à la marche!

En janvier et en février, dans le Skyway, nature et art ne font qu'un dans le cadre de l'exposition "Down to Earth" de Gabrielle Tsounis, sur le thème du voyage. (Ses œuvres sont basées sur des photos aériennes prises par le hublot d'un avion.). Dans le secteur des portes, ne manquez pas les œuvres textiles de Karen Henderson, réalisées au moyen de techniques mixtes, qui visent à mettre en lien les notions d'individualité, de lieu, d'émotion et de temps.

    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.

    "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.
