Opening as part of the South End Art Hop, Borough Gallery & Studio presents their most recent exhibition, Riddles & Lies: charged by desire, created around 4 artists whose focus is reinterpreting the psychology and emotional logic of their surroundings and circumstances while also drawing heavily from the imagination and art of manipulation. Featuring book art, paintings, mixed media and drawings by Haley Bishop, Ian Burcroff, Shawna Cross and Philip Hardy; the exhibit is based on improvisation, deconstructing established notions, filling the voids of reality and layering, stacking, removing and recreating the truth until only the expressiveness of riddles is left behind.

An opening reception for Riddles & Lies: charged by desire will be held during the South End Art Hop on Friday, September 10th from 5 to 9pm and Saturday, September 11th from 10am to 5pm. Simultaneous events abound in our 180 Flynn building.

Borough Gallery & Studio presents their most recent exhibition, Entropic Restructed. The exhibition features ten artists from Burlington, greater Vermont and New York who display work focused on varying manifestations of deterioration and transformation. Entropic Restructed challenges the idea of traditional beauty and pushes the limits of aesthetics. Featured artists utilize deteriorated materials and subjects, whether a rusted lock or memory, to fashion works that are both compelling and full of disquiet, if only for the crumbled past they hint at.

An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Saturday, March 27th from 5 to 9pm with DJ Turkey P. Artists in the exhibition include: Andrea BeckerEleanor Brennesholtz, Shawna CrossDiane GabrielMichael HeeneyBrent JohnsonJames JuronRaychel SeveranceStanley Trela and Adam Wimble. (Click on any artist’s name for more information) Simultaneous events in our 180 Flynn building include an opening reception for Sidney Eley’s photography exhibition in SEABA’s gallery and open studios of Vintage Inspired and Miss Pickles Attic in Whistle Stop Antiques & Co.

Entropic Restructed opens on March 27th and will be on display until May 1st. For more information or to schedule a tour please contact Shawna Cross at shawnacross@gmail.com, 802-782-1675 or Stephen Orloske, sorloske@gmail.com, 802-922-8688.

Shawna Cross, Emily Wilson, and Borough Gallery & Studio, are pleased to present BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS, a group exhibition showcasing the work of 10 emerging, area artists. The exhibition will open August 9th from 5pm to 9pm at 180 Flynn Avenue, through the SEABA entrance, in Burlington Vermont’s South End. During the opening reception live music from Gregory Alexander and special guest, will take place from 6pm to 8pm. In addition Rivulette and Vintage Inspired/Miss Pickles Attic will also open their studio doors and invite people to explore our 180 Flynn Avenue hallways.

BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS ventures into the current and uprising movements within the art scene of Vermont and Upstate New York, providing stomping ground for emerging artists to display their talents and a platform for their unique vision to be both seen and heard.

Borough Gallery & Studio is wildly ecstatic to present to Burlington an exhibition featuring such passionate and dedicated artists whose belief in both their vision and their voice is illimitable. This exhibition extends the opportunity for community members to experience the art that their neighbors, local business associates, waitstaff, cashiers, and friends are busy making behind closed doors into the late hours of the night. While the styles and media of participating artists range from abstract to representational; covering photography, painting, drawings, sculptures, and installations, the vividness of each piece is of equal nature. The goal of this exhibition is to shed light on the rising artists in our community and in turn highlight the South End as a place where art, music and culture have a profound influence and impact.

Our BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS, on display in Borough Gallery & Studio’s debut group show, include Kate Ashman, John Bildstein, Shawna Cross, Cristin Manner, Leigh Manville, Rachel Moore, Elise Pecor, Jackie Ryan, Emily Wilson, Adam Wimble; Open Studios of Stephanie McKay of Rivulette, Mary Heinrich Aloi and Richard Corbet of Vintage Inspired LLC and Miss Pickles Attic; and live music by Gregory Alexander and guest.

If you are unable to make it to the opening but would like to check out the show, Emily and I will hold regular gallery hours from 11am to 3pm on weekdays until the show’s closing on August 23rd.
