NEW CITY GALERIE is a hospitable space for the arts in the center of downtown Burlington, Vermont, located at 132 Church Street on the south end of the Church Street Marketplace above Ake’s Place bar. Our gallery space hosts new art exhibits every three months, with a focus on connecting emerging Vermont artists with emerging patrons of the arts. Through our residency program, New City supports four resident artists in large windowed studios that overlook Church Street and Mechanics Alley. New City regularly hosts intimate, limited seating concerts as well as film screenings, poetry/prose readings and various workshops taught by local artists and musicians.

BOOK NEW CITY | New City has a partnership with local booking agency Almost There for concerts outside of our own Sunday Night Folk series (which runs in the winter and spring). Please contact Almost There for booking indie rock/experimental genre shows at New City. We love helping small arts non-profits by offering affordable rental fees so get in touch about your proposed event (we can’t accommodate all requests given our part time staff). We also rent our main gallery space to individuals and bands that can bring their own support staff for opening/closing–our standard fee for events outside our own programming/partnerships is $150 per event (if the event is over 3 hours we charge an additional $50 fee). Please contact Lydia Kern ( or Joseph Pensak ( to inquire about booking your event.

New City Galerie is a non-profit art space supported by Redeemer Presbyterian of Burlington, renewing the ancient Christian tradition of the church’s patronage of the arts. For more information, please email us at or call us at (802) 395-1923.
