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

In September, photographer Elliot Burg presents "Athletes for the Ages" in the Skyway, with images celebrating the senior athletes who competed in 2015's National Senior Games. In the Gates, Joy Huckins-Noss exhibits contemporary pointillism focusing on the natural world. Says the artist, "I want to bring the feelings and sensations of being outdoors into the painting."

In October and November, the Skyway features photography by Caleb Foster. With his dynamic images of Vermont and beyond, the artist hopes to capture details of the "beauty and awesome scale of our created world," he writes. In the Gates, Tom Cullins' paintings explore light, color, and cubistic and abstract compositions.

All three months, Lee Garrison's (1928-2014) diptych "Giant Red Hibiscus" is mounted by the escalator. The artist spent more than 30 of her summers painting on the shores of Lake Champlain. If you're going up, be sure to turn around and look at the wall behind you. But watch your step!

Burlington City Arts organise des expositions 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 à 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 septembre, le photographe Elliot Burg présente l'exposition « Athletes for the Ages » dans le Skyway. Ses photos rendent hommage aux sportifs qui ont participé aux jeux nationaux pour personnes âgées en 2015. Dans le secteur des portes, Joy Huckins-Noss expose des toiles pointillistes modernes sur le thème du monde naturel. Elle affirme : « J'essaie d'intégrer dans la peinture les sentiments et les sensations ressentis en plein air ».

En octobre et en novembre, vous pourrez admirer dans le Skyway les photographies de Caleb Foster. Avec ses images dynamiques du Vermont et d'ailleurs, l'artiste tente de capturer dans le détail « la beauté et le caractère grandioses de notre monde », écrit-il. Dans le secteur des portes, les toiles de Tom Cullins explorent la lumière et la couleur dans des compositions cubistes et abstraites.

Durant les trois mois, ne manquez pas le diptyque « Giant Red Hibiscus » de Lee Garrison's (1928-2014) près de l'escalier mécanique. L'artiste a passé une trentaine d'étés à peindre sur les rives du lac Champlain. Si vous montez, ne manquez pas de vous retourner pour regarder le mur derrière vous. Mais faites attention à la marche!

Tous ces artistes ont vécu ou ont passé du temps au Vermont. Vous pourrez voir certaines de leurs œuvres à l'aéroport et d'autres sur leurs sites Web.

    After a day spent skiing Vermont's wind-whipped mountains or strolling the snowy streets of Burlington, there's only one thing left to do: Head inside and thaw the frost from your cheeks, preferably over a bite to eat.

  • Eternal Winter: How Vermont Photographer "Snowflake" Bentley Got His Nickname

    Vermont is, of course, known for its snow. The white, fluffy stuff is beloved by skiers and landscape painters alike, each year turning the Green Mountain State into a winter wonderland. While we tend to think of snow in its accumulated form, one Vermonter made his name by getting very, very close to the singular crystals: Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley of Jericho, a 19th-century farmer-turned-photographer credited with the discovery that no two snowflakes are alike.
