Bryant Chase says about their work:
I strive for balance in my time here…in my attempts to influence people through dynamic and ideally recognizable flushes of color and lines of embarkment to a fantasy of conception and realization. I agree that lines and color do not make art; the realization of embracing my lines and color evokes emotion and satisfaction, peace, love, and understanding for all.
Kara Torres says about her work:
For me, home is not a place, but a feeling of absolute presence too fleeting to be possessed. In this series at City Market, I sought to harness the intangible feeling of home as I experience it. By combining the easy accessibility and familiarity of cartoon imagery with the mysterious subconsciousness of intuitive art–the safety and comfort of the known and the bittersweet longing for the unknown–I hope to free the viewer from their reliance on language as a means of ownership and instead allow them to experience that vague, ephemeral familiarity of feeling profoundly at home.
Kara Torres, who also operates under the name Fine Forager, is a Burlington-based artist best known for her intricate, cartoon-style black & white line drawings and her jewelry made from found objects. She can be found on Saturdays at the BCA Artist Market. Please email Torres about art purchases, payment plans, and commissions.

For Megan Stearns, art is activism. Stearns’ primary passion is animal welfare, and she believes that the core misperception underlying maltreatment of animals (especially in factory farming, animal testing, and the use of live animals in medical training) is a lack of awareness of their sentience, individuality, and emotional lives. The artist strives to capture those qualities in her animal portraiture–to convey the intelligence, personality and emotion of each animal. The families that commission these portraits do so to honor the beautiful individuality of the animals they came to loved. These works were originally created in soft pastel on paper. The pieces in this show are digital reproductions made with archival inks on watercolor paper. Megan works out of her home studio in Hinesburg.
Hailing from the small town of Derby in the Northeast Kingdomb comes artist Chime ZerØ. Art has always been a passion of Chime ZerØ. Ever since he was old enough to hold a pencil, Chime ZerØ was drawing and painting. He refined his artistic skills throughout his schooling; always doodling in his notebooks. It was in college, where he studied Art History, that Chime ZerØ was influenced and birthed his style. The work of Chime ZerØ is a combination of past artistic movements. He has the fine brush strokes of the Renaissance mixed with the drips and splatters of Abstract Expressionism. Elements of Pop art and Graffiti can be found all throughout his work. Chime ZerØ has a unique flair while staying true to the artistic roots.

Edward Lincoln says about their work: I was a commercial photographer in Boston, Providence, and Woodstock, Vermont from 1963 to 1973. I worked for Cushing Studio, Lenscraft Studio, The Boston Globe, and The Providence Journal. Being from art school, I was hired to make feature photos for the front page of the newspapers, specifically, not to be hard news. The photographs in this show represent painting with a digital camera from the modern era. Since the 1960s, I’ve been a dairy farmer, house builder, vineyard owner, and refrigeration engineer.
Elliot Diana says about their work: “My art is derived from pieces of the natural world, and from figments of my own imagination. I allow these to flow into our physical world though pencil, ink, prints, carvings, and things that I find in our Northern Forests. I have been mentored by family members, teachers, friends and the wilderness in the art of creativity and curiosity since I can remember and I thank them all for the ability that they have helped me develop. My inspirations are my grandad, my high school art teachers, James Guarino, and Zoë Myers. I hope you enjoy.”

Petr Pavel Kepka
Petr Pavel Kepka is an award-winning videographer and music teacher from the Czech Republic. His docudrama Stanislav Stanek: My Blues and Greens (2009) was the winner of the Beijing Film Festival Crying Monkey Award for best art film. One of his passions throughout his life has been his love for the capital city of Czech Republic, Prague. Kepka has been filming the architecture of Prague for 17 years and for the last 10 years he has specialized in night photography using HDR technology. “I consider night photography a very challenging art to master. The final product can be done in many ways. One picture takes about 3 hours if you have a lucky day, or you can struggle with it for a week,” Kepka said. “I hope that this exhibition will bring my vision of Prague, my never ending inspiration and love, to Burlington and City Market customers.”

Joe Kos, also known as Jaguartiste, presents work with abstract artistic movement.
A lifelong passion for reading history and literature, a love and appreciation for 18th-century style, haute couture of the 20th century, of flora and fauna, travel and my birthplace of Manhattan informs my artwork. Art, to me, is like breathing, it is essential to the mind and heart and informs life. My art has been infused and tempered by many places and events and specially cherished people and pets. It has been inspired and nurtured from infancy by exposure to some of the world’s preeminent museums. Life inspires art and art infuses us with life.
Bryan Briscoe: “Basketry Arts”
5/3 to 5/31/2016
Bryan Briscoe says about his work: Inspired by baskets and how they are made, I created a new body of original art work, “Basketry Arts”. “Basketry Arts” provides art collectors a fresh look at new original paintings and drawings that celebrate Basketry. In this show, I used watercolors, acrylics and a mix of mediums to achieve a natural feel for each work. The aesthetic of my work is not so much focused on beautiful art; but the color expression to help communicate the concepts. I enjoy painting from self-expression and using my first impression of the subject as a vehicle to explore the concept, then visually translating that on to the surface type that makes the most sense.
