I recently discovered information for Burlington City Arts. Their mission is to create a relationship between art and the community by integrating the arts in the education, business, and economic development. In short they advocate for artists and art enthusiasts.
They provide exhibition opportunities through their own curated spaces and through a corporate leasing program intended to place art in public spaces. They also maintain a database of works and local artists to assist in making connections with people and businesses who are interested in art.
As an artist, they provide a simple form to fill out to become part of their list of artists. They currently have more than 200 artists with works available. I took the time and made digital copies of my artwork and provided them with the necessary forms for selling and leasing my works. The process was relatively painless though it did take a while to compile a list of current works in the appropriate size and resolution that they required for digital images.
For me, the jury is still out on this group but they seem to be very positive and supporting. For me, the proof will be if they manage to exhibit my work or make a connection for me with people who are either interested in purchasing or leasing my art.
