In the Gallery


The work features intensely observed oils on canvas, generally done on location, or built up from on-location drawings and small color studies.

Everything on display has been done within the past two years. This current exhibit is following Weidle's one-person exhibit at Blue Mountain Gallery last month in New York.

On painting, he has been overheard to say, "it has the decency to hold still, as few dare or can, permitting one's eye a tiny but wild freedom: to travel as it will."



Gallery hours are from 10am to 6pm Monday through Friday and 10am to 4pm Saturday. Free and open to the public!

Gallery Lounge is open the 1st & 3rd Friday of every month from 5-8pm for art, live music, wine, beer, charcuteries, and uncorked conversations!

5X7 Art for Everyone Exhibition and Sale

For this annual mini show, both amateur and professional artists were asked to compose and donate a 5"X7" piece of art. The small scale size doesn’t intimidate someone from taking a little bit of time out of their busy life to let go and just CREATE. The size also makes it more affordable for anyone to purchase an original piece of art. This 5X7 Art for Everyone Exhibtion and Sale is a fundraiser for the Art Center.

Each piece is for sale for $20. Show runs through October 13.

Our Mission: To use the power of art to awaken the creative nature that is in every person, to connect us socially and to contribute to the vibrancy of Burlington.
