Very few exhibits and the ones we saw were not very engaging or compelling. The place is pretty small. Very nice staff, however.

The worst use of space you'll ever see, consistently dishing out bland, all-white walls and greyscale art, with minimal space filled and the kind of contemporary art no one actually understands but everyone pretends they do to look deep.

This is a gallery that has some very eccentric and eclectic collections. It may not be for everyone, but the artwork is very interesting. If anything it is a nice cool stopp on a hot day.

Fine little gallery with avant garde exhibits and fine films focused on the arts. Located in a renovated firehouse on Burlington's pedestrian Church Street Marketplace.
