Burlington City Arts (BCA) is seeking nominations for the 2014 Barbara Smail Award. The award is given to a mid-career, Vermont-based artist who has a desire to expand his or her creative experience and has displayed an enthusiastic support of his or her peers.
Recipients of the 12 Annual Barbara Smail Award will be awarded a $1,500 cash stipend and $1,000 worth of class registration and/or usage of The BCA Center’s studio facilities (this includes the print and clay studio at 250 Main Street, as well as the community darkroom at The BCA Center) for one year. Upon completion of the calendar year, BCA will host an exhibition of the artist’s work. Friends and family of Barbara Smail, a well-loved and highly-respected artist from the Burlington area who died in the fall of 2001, established the award.
