Burlington VT – On Monday February 7, 20ll at 3pm a live call to artists was created on Facebook by the Art’s Alive profile. The first 50 artists to respond automatically secured a spot in the exhibition to be held at the Art’s Alive Gallery at Main Street Landing’s Union Station in Burlington from March 1 until April 30, provided they could meet the submission deadline. The show was filled within three hours of the call going live and an alternate list was then compiled.

Art’s Alive is proud to be hosting its second First 50 exhibition continuing a Burlington tradition dating back to the Pascal Spengemann era at BCA. First 50 is a democratic exhibition which provides a showcase for amateur artists to exhibit their work alongside emerging artists, working artists, and professional artists well into their post-emergent careers.

There will be an artist’s reception Friday April 1, 2011 from 5-8pm at Union Station that is free and open to the public. For more information regarding this exhibition please contact:
