The 2017 Festival of Fine Arts
Art’s Alive, in conjunction with Seaba Burlington, and Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center is pleased to present the 2017 Art’s Alive Fine Arts Festival, FOFA, at 1 Main Street Main Street Landings Union Station for the month of June 2017.
Each year Art’s Alive dedicates the month of June to the Fine Arts. For almost three decades the Art’s Alive Festival of Fine Art has celebrated the visual art of Vermont residents with a Juried Exhibition hosted by Main Street Landing and is installed at the Art’s Alive Gallery in Historic Union Station at the foot of Main Street in Downtown Burlington. The Juried Exhibition is judged by two independent professionals in the field of visual arts who are not affiliated with Art’s Alive and three cash prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. An additional cash prize is presented to an Artist for winning the Roberto W. Fitzgerald Award. This prize is judged and awarded by Art’s Alive & the SEABA Board of Directors.
Thank you everyone who came to the Awards/Gala Event on Friday the 9th! The snow will continue to stay up until the end of June, so make sure you pop in!
