A HOSPITABLE SPACE FOR the arts

NEW CITY GALERIE is a hospitable space for the arts in the center of downtown Burlington, Vermont, located at 132 Church Street on the south end of the historic Church Street Marketplace (above Ake’s Place bar). Our gallery space hosts new art exhibits every three months, with a focus on connecting emerging Vermont artists with emerging patrons of the arts.

Through our residency program, New City supports three resident artists in large windowed studios that overlook Church Street and Mechanics Alley. New City regularly hosts intimate, limited seating concerts as well as film screenings, poetry/prose readings and various workshops taught by local artists and musicians.

New City Galerie is a non-profit art space whose primary support comes from grants and from Redeemer Presbyterian of Burlington, renewing the ancient Christian tradition of the church’s patronage of the arts. For more information, please email us at joseph@newcitygalerie.org or call us at (802) 395-1923.

RESIDENCY AT NEW CITY  |  Our six month residency program gives qualifying artists an opportunity to further develop their work. This work-share residency is intended for artists who have demonstrated excellence in their work and are seeking to enrich (and be enriched by) the arts community in Burlington. Learn more about residencies.
