In the Gallery

Hilde DeBruyne


Reception: Friday, September 2 // 5-8pm

"Sounds and shapes will emerge before your eyes for the pleasure of your senses, in a singular and creative process where multiple bridges will be crossed. Ancient to contemporary music, realistic to abstract painting, stillness to movement, corporal to spiritual. All leading to silence or peace within"
The painting, in a triptych form, will be for sale at the end of the performance.
$15 Tickets on sale now! Call or stop in to purchase.
Cash bar available that evening.

Call for Artists!

Art Center of Burlington is excited to offer two different opportunities for artists to showcase and sell their artwork.

The Itty Bitty Bits of Art Show and Sale debuted in 2021 and proved to be a success with sixty artists participating. All pieces are 12" or less and must be for sale. The Art Center handles all sales and takes a 25% commission. There is a $15 entry fee for up to 3 pieces This is a great time for the community to get started on their holiday shopping!

The annual All Member Show is always a community favorite as this exhibit concludes the year in our Gallery. Any current Art Center Member is welcome to show up to two pieces, at least one of them has to be for sale. Pieces vary from fiber art to mixed media and everything in between.

This is always a popular show and many shop the artwork for holiday gift, most artwork is affordable and locally made.
