this is a small intimate gallery you can visit and see in a short time. We went with a small child who was able to interact with the materials and welcomed by the staff. Worth a look on your way to all the sights in Burlington

Great exhibits, friendly staff, interesting receptions. The gallery spaces accommodate most types of art exhibits and events. It is free. The big front windows draw people in.

I love art but the exhibits that were offered up when I visited where awful. I haven't spent so little time in a gallery. The audio-visual presentation of a light bouncing off walls in a dark warehouse, of a lit candle and a couple spray painted sheets left much to desired. Let's hope something better comes along soon.

Our family lives close by and never gets tired of visiting the arts center and seeing the new exhibits. The center is centrally located and it is easy to make a day of the trip and shop and eat nearby on church street.
