New City Galerie's broadly themed March exhibit will be a visual conversation about the continent of Africa. We are seeking both African and non-African artists whose work is influenced, informed, or inspired by the vast and varied continent, by personal experiences in or with African countries and individuals, and by both celebrations or lamentations of historical and contemporary issues. If you are unsure whether or not your work fits this broad theme, e-mail

Submit digital images of artwork to by March 15th. If you do not have access to a computer or to e-mail, please call 802-355-5440 to schedule an appointment in the gallery to submit your work for review.

New City Galerie is a new hospitable space for the arts on historic Church Street in downtown Burlington. We are committed as much to the arts as to the artists who produce the work, and our desire is to help Burlington artists thrive, connecting emerging artists with emerging patrons. To that end, New City Galerie is organizing high quality exhibits, concerts, film screenings and lectures in an inclusive, high artist-commission gallery space for these emerging artists and especially for artists that live and work in communities that have historically been excluded from the activities of the city.
