December & January's Downtown Featured Artist - Steve Sharon

Steve Sharon is an abstract painter, musician and mixed media artist living in Burlington, VT. He went to school for music at Goddard College in Plainfield, VT, and has been a musician since the age of 14. He started painting six years ago when he decided to shift some of his focus into making visual art. His paintings involve a deep and heavy process -- a method that he discovered through chance and through the drive of using the art of improvisation to create. The artist in Steve wants the viewer to look upon the paintings and come to their own conclusions as to what they see.

The prices of Steve's paintings are geared toward being attractive for everyone. He believes that owning a painting and having it in one's home for one's well-being is more important than how much one has paid for it. The value of the paintings will change over time, but the relationship between the viewer and the painting only grows. Steve's work has appeared in a growing number of professional gallery shows; and has completed private commissions a many customers.

November & December's South End Featured Artist - Skyler Barthold

My technique is an organic free style with asymmetrical dramatic lines of bold colors. In the past I have studied a range of art Forms: clothing design, ceramics, digital and film, oil, pastel, and now currently, acrylic and spray paint. When I was 18 I apprenticed local artist Fiona Cooper Fenwick for a year, exploring plein air painting, focusing on landscapes with palette knifes and oil.

September & October's South End Featured Member Artist - Annie Caswell

Exploring my creativity with passion and introspection fuels my soul. The transformation my ideas go through from conception to completion inspires and challenges me. The photographs on canvas and paintings come from several years of traveling and working around the world. From Delivering sailboats, teaching English in Thailand, to a garden walk in Burlington, VT. Wherever you are, there is always something to capture that is beautiful, even within devastation.

August & September's Downtown Featured Artist - Bryan Briscoe

From realism to abstraction. "My art focuses on color, form and expression." I work in representation and abstraction. In my work you'll find subjects relating to my strong spiritual connections to people, nature, flora and fauna. I begin my work with expressions or titles to visually communicate."Since relocating back to the east coast in 2007, I have continued to sell original paintings and prints".Bryan Briscoe paints at his farm house studio, in the Northern Adirondack Park, in Northern NY. He is producing original watercolor and acrylic paintings. "I am presently working on concepts for large works that speak to spirituality and nature". 

July & August's South End Featured Member Artist - Susan Essex Luce

A note from Susuan: One of my favorite local landmarks is Bren Alvarez’s brilliant filing cabinet sculpture on Flynn Avenue, located on the center line of the long-ago proposed Southern Connector. There is much to appreciate about it, from its commentary on bureaucracy to its artistic design. To me, it is a neighborhood-defining landmark - the Eiffel Tower of Burlington. I love looking up and finding that nature has taken up residence in, on or around it.

June & July's Downtown Featured Member Artist - Monet Cruz

Over 3.5 billion years ago the fossil record shows the first life forms on earth emerged, 500 million years ago the first animals explored land, and 465 million years ago plants made their way onto land.  Amazingly, flowers made their first appearance on earth a mere 130 million years ago, over a hundred million years after the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. Imagine the first vibrant burst of color and fragrance in every landscape and how this modified leaf evolved into one of the most enchanting natural wonders.  Life as we know it could not have evolved without the flower, a delicate representation of the beautiful and transient nature of all life.  When I look at a flower I see a fragile impermanence, which I have explored through this series with oil, pastel, and gouache.

May's Featured Artist - Melanie Brotz

Melanie's passions for environmental protection, wild plants and healing, community building, and nurturing love, kindness, and connection all fuel her art making.  Her paintings, environmental art pieces, sculptures, and mixed media art are inspired by the natural world; patterns, shapes, shadows, colors, textures, and the animals, plants and landscapes she encounters.  Playing outside, looking, listening, touching, learning, and wondering lead to new possibilities.  Favorite materials are found objects, driftwood, seed pods, birch bark, snow, sand, wool, shells, seaweed, leaves, and rocks.  Melanie challenged herself to use only found, recycled, or re-purposed canvases and frames for the Owls, who presented themselves as a theme with many potential variations; and obviously some kind of very profound, deep meaning ;)

The Twig Stars and Owl paintings are all available for purchase.  Contact Melanie at mel@burlingtontelecom.net
