Art by Amy R. Roberts
Amy Roberts grew up in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains in Connecticut and began lessons with oils when she was nine. Now her chosen medium is acrylics.
Amy says, “I explore in ever widening rings from where I am, I am a witness to that time, that place. I have moved 19 times and lived in nine states. I am about finding the small spaces, hidden places and mercurial skylines, returning at different times of day. The effect of the light is of special interest to me. Reflections in water, glass, ice, a polished floor offer the kinds of challenges I want to master. I prefer working on a larger canvas, building them to complement the subject. I want to see a very small phenomenon grow mighty and beautiful.”

The Trustees of the Burlington Public Library welcome artists to exhibit work in the Library at 22 Sears Street. A spacious, well-lit area on the first floor has been designated "The Gallery" and amateur and professional artists of all ages are invited to participate in solo and group juried shows. Each artist is generally assigned a month to exhibit work.
The Library also has glass-fronted locking display cases in the entry and exit lobbies at the front of the building. They are ideal for displaying three-dimensional objects, but can also be used to display posters, photographs, or papers that are mounted on a firm backing.
If you would like to exhibit your work in either The Gallery or the Glass Cases, click here for an application form or pick one up at the Library. Click here for display space procedures and specifications, and here for a picture of the rear wall gallery with dimensions.
