We will be doing a fundraiser for local food banks and services as well, matching designated funds from a portion of any art sales and donations that come in during the evening. For example for every donation to Feeding Chittenden that comes in for $5 or more, I’ll take a drink and match the funds! Simply comment on the live feed that you donated and you can send us the receipt in a message. We are also supporting free meals provided by Miss Weinerz and Hunger Free Vermont and will have the links available to participate.

Thank you for your ongoing support and “see” real soon!

The Space Gallery is seeking online submissions of artwork meant to be seen outside of the typical art viewing experience. We are looking for artworks that glow under blacklight, that generate their own light, and that are best experienced in darkness rather than bright illumination, including such mediums as light sculpture, painting, sculpture, and video.

My passion for the arts and love of creative endeavors has led me down a path of connecting artists to opportunity. My vision for the South End consists of building up relationships and paving new ways for artists and entrepreneurs to connect and communicate with each other and the broader community. My role at SEABA will be diverse, though centered on the idea of the organization being a platform to raise awareness and give a voice to artists and businesses, so that we all may thrive. I’m looking forward to many exciting days ahead.” – Christy Mitchell

We are very pleased to announce that Christy will be joining SEABA as our new Executive Director. This position requires a dynamic leader who is integral to our community, who has a deep knowledge of and appreciation for all that the South End has to offer,” stated Seth Mobley, President of the SEABA Board of Directors. “Christy is the right person to guide SEABA, to nurture its strengths, and to support the innovation taking place across our community.

In the next few months, the Board will work closely with Mitchell to explore and assess the South End’s needs by:
• Planning the 27th Annual South End Art Hop, optimizing its potential
• Conducting listening sessions within the community and engaging members
• Defining programmatic priorities for artists and businesses alike
