The Burlington International Airport features Vermont artists from BCA's External Exhibitions program in several spaces. These exhibits are located in the Skyway and Gates 1-8 (both located on the 2nd floor) as well as above the escalator in the main building. Artwork rotates every few months in these locations.

The photographs exhibited in this selection were taken by the members of the central Vermont-based photography group "f/7."  The theme of the exhibit is Simplicity.  Simplicity implies a directness of image, shorn of complexity, ornamentation, and artifice.  At the same time, it leaves ample room for beauty, introspection, and ambiguity.  We believe that there are many different ways to see the world, and this collection of images presents a diverse yet complementary take on the theme of simplicity.

For me Art is Life and Life is Art. Both processes are complicated, adventurous, creative, challenging, and infinite. Every time I draw or paint, I try to improvise with new mediums and styles. Art is a meditation process. It is sacred, magical and ephemeral. The state of creation is life in a different dimension. Artwork turns into a separate substance that has energy, light and lives its own life. The goal for me is not to create painting with the right succession of strokes, proportions and perspective. All the beauty is in imperfection. Drawing or painting becomes a separate substance that has energy and light, and lives its own life. Art has no borders and it needs to be free. You should put passion, energy and love into what you do to create something of artistic value, emotional and spiritual, something that would disturb people's minds and touch the strings of their souls. My works are the result of generated experience, passion, feelings, concerns, and questions. Emotions: love, friendship, happiness, grief, disappointment, failure, and success make the works impressionistic, lively, and dynamic. You cannot step into the same river twice, you can never feel or think the way you did a moment ago. Every new work should be original, complete and genuine. You cannot have a formula for inspiration or love. Either it is there or it is not.
