Rob Hitzig at Brickels Gallery in Burlington

Rob Hitzig has a solo show at Brickels Gallery in Burlington through the month of August. The title of the show, Don't Tread On Me! Wood for Walls is inspired by the numerous people who, upon viewing Hitzig’s work, asked if he would "do" their floors. Though he has long struggled with how best to respond to this question, Hitzig says he likes “how my work challenges their perceptions of what art is and how a material like wood can be used.”

The opening reception is during the Burlington First Friday Art Walk, from 5 pm to 8 pm, August 3rd. The gallery also doubles as the studio of sculptor, John Brickels. Visitors are also welcome during his studio hours -- 10am to 4pm Monday through Friday.

Brickels Gallery is located at 266 Pine Street in the Soda Plant in Burlington's South End Arts District.
