BARBARA SMAIL AWARD
 

The Barbara Smail Award was established in 2003 by friends and family of Barbara Smail, a well-loved and highly respected artist from the Burlington area who died in the fall of 2001. The award is given on an annual basis to a mid-career, Vermont-based artist who has a desire to expand his or her creative experience, has displayed enthusiastic support of his or her peers and has been under-recognized in the community either through exhibition or other awards and programs. While the award is open to artists from across the state, it is our hope that the recipient will utilize Burlington City Arts’ facilities and resources. Therefore, please take into account the artist’s location and/or ability to travel when making your nomination.

The award is valued at $2,500. The recipient is awarded a $1,500 cash stipend and $1,000 worth of class registration and/or usage of The BCA Center's studio facilities (this includes the Print and Clay Studio at 250 Main Street, as well as the Community Darkroom at The BCA Center) for one year. Upon completion of the calendar year, BCA will host an exhibition of the artist’s work. Finally, the artist is asked to donate an artwork to BCA as a way to help support the program. Specific details will be discussed with the artist.

In the fall of each year, nominations are made by individuals on the BCA’s Gallery Advisory Committee, Board of Directors, as well as members of the Vermont community.
