Local, affordable art—those three words harmonize so sweetly. The Burlington City Arts (BCA), 135 Church St. in downtown Burlington will hold an opening reception Friday, December 14 from 5 to 7 pm on the second floor to showcase art affordable enough to buy and give for the holidays. Join Vermont artists Beth Pearson, Gary Hall, Karen Henderson, Steven Goodman, Gillian Klein, Roger Coleman, Lisa Lillibridge, Tom Cullins, Mike Strauss, Susan Larkin and more to enjoy refreshments and accessible art. The show will also be available December 11 to January 25, 2013. All works are available for purchase and carry. Proceeds support both local artists and BCA’s gallery education scholarship fund. Curator Circle members receive a 5 percent discount. For more information, visit www.burlingtoncityarts.org.
