April Featured Member Artist - Fidget Artwork

Fidget Artwork was born the day Cassi no longer cared about finding the “perfect” medium.  Finger-painting, collage, acrylic, photography—she loves it all!  Heavily inspired by a wide variety of music and an adoration of nature, Fidget Artwork is an ever growing collection of eclectic pieces as unique and unpredictable as the Vermont weather.

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.

November Featured Member Artist - Miranda Dott

“Painting brings joy! I hope to share some of that joy and light through my watercolor and acrylic display.  I grew up in Rockport, Massachusetts.  The majestic ocean and sky brought my desire to paint watercolor.  Living on the coast and being around such beauty brought lots of inspiration.  I have explored many mediums, but have found that watercolor has a gentle flow that is very meditative. Acrylics have been fun to play with and have allowed me to be bold and loose at times.

Moving to Vermont in 2009 opened up more color exploration.  Merging the beautiful mountains into new ideas is enriching to my work.  Free flowing flowers and greenery, some visual and some imaginative, have been influential as well.  This collection is a variety of work from several years back as well as more recent creations.”

October Featured Member Artist - City Market

October is Co-op Month and Farm to School Month! City Market is using the Member Art Wall to celebrate one of its most treasured goals: to reduce childhood hunger in our community.  While our adult Members were celebrating at Member Meeting on September 17, our younger Members were creating a beautiful collaborative printed canvas highlighting their favorite healthy snacks at the Co-op. 

Look for this one-of-a-kind mural along with pictures of the project on our Member Art Wall throughout the month of October. We’ll also share inspiring information about what some of City Market’s Community Outreach Partners have accomplished with their important work on food insecurity in our community!

August's Featured Member Artist: John Douglas

John Douglas began looking through the viewfinder more than fifty years ago, making films in Mississippi, and during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, and then in North Vietnam in 1969 with Newsreel... and the list goes on. He has continued work in film, video, computer modeling and animation, and most recently digital photography. He has struggled to bring the world about us into a clearer focus, trying to expose the social and economic contradictions that plague our lives and perhaps making the choices for change clearer and more pressing.

July's Featured Member Artist: Johnny Pagoda

Johnny moved to Burlington in April 2012 from Ft. Lauderdale, FL and makes a living as a tattoo artist at Event Horizon Tattoo Studio here in Burlington. This collection, "Anna" is a collaboration of Johnny and his 100 year old grandmother, Anna Martin. All the designs were originally pencil drawings done by Anna just before her 100th birthday in March, then enlarged and painted by Johnny. This is her first art show. Besides art, Johnny enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, Courtney, and their three dogs, Bella, Daisy, and Kipper Barrington Jr. III. He likes to cook, snowboard, hike, bike, shop at City Market, and listen to fusion jazz.
