Member Artists

Due to the closing of the South End store's cafe, we are temporarily suspending the South End Art Wall to be fair to our Member Artists. Our Downtown Art Wall plans to continue as normal while respecting social distancing requirements as much as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

Are you an artist and a City Market Member? We'd love to feature your art on one of our Member Artist Walls!  We feature art from a Member Artist for two month periods at both our Downtown store on the wall near Register 10 and in our South End store on the walls on either side of our cafe.  If you are interested in displaying your art, please fill out and return our Member Artist Application and submit to

April & May Downtown Member Artist: Marcel Etienne

When I paint I submerge myself in color. I look at a blank canvas and think of the possibilities of what I can do: how much white, how much color, how far to stretch realism into abstraction. Sometimes I may start with a sketch, other times I just start slapping on colors and see where it goes. My paintings are visceral, not intellectual: I want the viewer to feel subliminal pleasure from an explosion of colors.

February & March Downtown Member Artist: Grace Doherty

Grace is an employee at City Market and an undergraduate student at UVM studying Community and International Development. In her spare time she enjoys cooking meals with her housemates and learning new things.

April & May Downtown Member Artist: Stella Lillig

Stella Lillig’s latest acrylic and oil on canvas works are brightly colored abstractions anchored by geometric patterns evoking tunnels and infused with a slight graphic and Pop sensibility.
