September Featured Member Artist - Laura Cui

“Plants and animals have been my longstanding favorite subjects. I take pleasure in trying to get my drawings “just right” through close observation and careful line work. The process of creating my drawings are less so a means of expression, but rather an avocation for producing something aesthetically appealing.

This show exhibits some examples of my past work -- framed prints of plant studies done from life. They serve as the precursor to my current project, a collection of pencil illustrations featuring flowers that one might label “imperfect”. Keep an eye out in the coming months for my next show Imperfection.

August Featured Member Artist - Karen Karibian

“I tend to favor and infuse cheerful colors throughout my cartoons.  I prefer my characters to have a light and airy feel to them, almost as if they can be peeled off of the page, like pieces from a Colorforms set.  Many might appear to be dancing around, unaffected by the laws of gravity.  I like the dichotomy between a bewildered, muddled mind and a mischievous, haughty look.  This adds a separate element to the picture and makes it seem multi-dimensional.  It also lends itself to various forms of interpretation rather than that which is most obvious visually to one’s eye.

My cartoons are meant to encourage laughter and lightness.  In their uniqueness and bold style they are meant to let people pause and have a “simple pleasure” moment.  They are meant to inspire; arouse others to let their imaginations rocket and put down with fortitude the images that they feel compelled to create.”

June Featured Member Artist - Anthony Green

“My work is a practice relating to the phenomenology of revelation. I make these images through a careful study of the objects in my internal awareness. My method involves holding extremely detailed imagery in my mind's eye. From this focusing process, I then translate the revelations as imagery and story. What manifests is my Magnum Opus: a work in progress that is intended to be a graphic novel and a movie. Of the Timeless Go-Between is the working title for the project. These images are hand-illustrated through a collection of mediums in the tradition of Outsider Art.”

March Featured Member Artist - Bryan Briscoe

FRUIT & FLOWERS, Bryan Briscoe

“Drawn to light, color and nature, I produced Fruit & Flowers. I wanted to create something refreshing and challenge my painting. The process of art making is my spiritual outlet as much as a necessity. Nature and spirituality are my creative inspirations, be they subjects of humanity, flora and fauna, or the greater universe.  My work is conceived from self-expression, personal points of view, or subjects of interest to connect with the viewer.  I respect the work of late great art masters Henri Matisse, Claude Monet and Paul Klee for their contributions of color, light and imagination.  Positive and negative space, compositional balance, color, form and how the subject is expressed with paint are the visual challenges for Fruit & Flowers.  I hope you are inspired by Fruit & Flowers too.”

February Featured Member Artist - Chime ZerØ

Artist Chime ZerØ hails from the small town of Derby in the North East Kingdom of Vermont.  Art has always been a passion of Chime ZerØ. Ever since he was old enough to hold a pencil, Chime ZerØ was drawing and painting. He refined his artistic skills throughout his schooling, always doodling in his notebooks. It was in college, where he studied Art History, that Chime ZerØ was influenced by all the art movements that has helped him create his style. The work of Chime ZerØ is a combination of past artistic movements. He has the fine brush strokes of the Renaissance mixed with the fast brush strokes of the French Impressionists. Drips and splatters of Abstract Expressionism along with elements of Pop Art and Graffiti can be found throughout all his work. Chime ZerØ has a unique flare while staying true to the artistic roots.

January Featured Member Artist - Vincent Sebastian

Vincent Sebastian (1991, Bartow, FL) is a local artist who specializes in traditional mixed media drawings.

Since the age of fourteen, Vincent has partnered with a number of authors such as Jayel Gibson (Tales Touched by Magick), Jeffrey J. Neubauer (Stone Giants), Joseph Larsen (A View From the Crossroads), and Jennifer L. Place (Letters to My Child) to bring their visions to life through illustration. 

His work is a manifestation of the spiritual, inspired by the style of Art Nouveau as seen popularized in the late 1800's. By using a blend of fantasy and reality, he creates dreamlike images that speak on an internal level.

Vincent currently works and resides in Burlington, VT with his partner and their two furry children.

December Featured Member Artist - Wiley Reading

Originally from New Jersey, Wiley comes to Burlington via Washington DC, where one of the first things he noticed was the incredibly unique architecture. Nowhere he'd been before had such amazing murals, colorful rowhouses, soaring bridges and adorable neighborhood haunts. They inspired him to begin memorializing the art and architecture of the city, a practice he continues now in his new home state of Vermont.
