New Moon Cafe will be displaying Art in Berlin during and June. Last October, Burlington College students traveled with Dana Heffern, Chair of Art+Design, to learn as she exhibited her Gods of Afflication series in a Berlin gallery. This group show, by Burlington College students who went on the Travel+Learn Berlin trip this past October, features artwork inspired by their experiences.
The students are writers, musicians, activists, graphic designers, fine artists, and photographers who took part in a Travel+Learn class. Berlin, a cutting edge haven for emerging artists, is a dynamic, progressive city that embraces the new while respecting its past. The students traveled to unexpected places — attending multiple art openings, pop-up galleries, and musical performances throughout their 8 day experience.
With new energy based in the grit, restlessness and experimental spirit of Berlin, students brought Germany to Vermont with art inspired by their journey.
New Moon is located at 150 Cherry Street in Burlington. Meet the artists starting at 6:00 p.m.

The Vermont Woodworking School will also be taking part in the fun of First Friday Art Walks with their Opening Reception at Frog Hollow Vermont State Craft Center on Church Street in Burlington.
Frog Hollow is welcoming Vermont Woodworking School students into the gallery for a month-long exhibit titled Finished. All works are by Vermont Woodworking School students and graduates, who are permeating the landscape and influencing Vermont's design aesthetic. Vermont is experiencing a renaissance and recommitment to crafted, utilitarian wooden objects, and VWS graduates are a significant part of this rebirth. View, touch and experience their finished work at this special May show. This show is focused on individuals who have completed their course of study with VWS.
In 2011 the VWS was accepted as the first Vermont State Craft Education Center under the newly redesigned designation. This exhibit marks the third collaboration between Frog Hollow and the VWS and it focuses on the breadth of skills students mastered in the school's various programs. Come see their work at Frog Hollow on the Marketplace in Burlington, VT, May 1 - June 1.
