South End Art Hop

Next weekend, Saturday 5th and 6th is the South End Art Hop.  I have had the honor and pleasure to work on a committee with a few other co-workers at Burton to put together the first ever Burton Employee Art show in conjunction with the Art Hop.

Tomorrow, I will be starting to hang the art that my colleague have entered into the exhibit-
It is amazing to me that I work with so many creative and talented individuals. People you never thought created art are entering their work in to show/

What's the South End ART HOP? It is probably on of the most attended visual arts events on the state of Vermont. Sponsored and produced by the South End Arts and Business Association in Burlington, this yearly event showcases some of the best known artists in the state as well as many emerging arts from the Burlington area.  It's been a real pleasure helping to put this together. Burton is going to be one of the many stops on the Art Hop map. Our offices happen to be at the southern most part of Burlington which make us a great starting off point on Friday for all the revelers who travel from one art opening/show to another, enjoying live music, good food and drinks, and taking in all the art.

I will post more info and details as we get closer to the actual opening.  On the same night- the Book Arts Guild has a show at the Firehouse Gallery downtown Burlington. So, I will be "hopping" from one venue to the other.  Should be a very interesting week! Off to finish my books for the Book Arts show... nighty night!
