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

August Featured Member Artist - Erica Brown

I have been a prolific film photographer since I was a high school girl in the mid-1970’s, developing my own black and white film. In 2009, I finally “went digital”, the same year that a job transfer brought my husband and me to beautiful Vermont. I’ve delighted in exploring the state with the fresh eyes of a new arrival.

July Featured Member Artist - Burlington City Arts' Summer Camp Program

“This class has been my dream. I love to create things.” (Camper, age 9) “I made more art in one week than in all the time before!” (Camper, age 14)

June Featured Member Artist - Judy Rice

As a native of Maine, the magazine Downeast was always in our house and after moving to Vermont at the age of 11, Vermont Life was added.  The photos in both of these magazines were the catalyst for my landscapes.  I eventually added photos of friend and family vacations, backyard gardens, pets, or, as you can see from this display, whatever captures my attention.  As for portraits—sorry, but that’s a no go.  As my Dad told me one day

May Featured Member Artist - Michael Z Rork

Zinfandel Photography is owned and operated by myself, Michael Z Rork. As well as specializing in boudoir, wedding and portrait style photography, I also thoroughly enjoy finding opportunities to add to my "Postcards from Vermont" landscape portfolio. My photographic style gravitates towards the cinematic -- dramatic lighting and epic composition.
