Scottie Raymond anthillcollective.com, @anthillcollective A founding member of Burlington street art team Anthill Collective, Raymond is a tireless proponent of bringing the urban form to our largely rural state. Last year, he helped organize Above the Radar, Vermont’s first street art festival, which convened more than 30 graffiti artists to deck out a lakeside wall at the King Street Ferry Dock.
Jeffrey Robbins jeffreyrobbins.net, @jeffcon0 The Burlington painter quietly made his debut at the 2017 South End Art Hop — and his trippy, drippy work “Cellar Dwellers” ended up taking first place in the festival’s juried exhibition. Inspired by schlocky VHS horror and skateboarding graphics, Robbins employs the somewhat unexpected medium of watercolor to make fun, deliciously campy works.

"Children of God" by Jeffrey Robbins
A veteran of Glover’s Bread and Puppet Theater, Jones is a printmaker whose style is clearly influenced by the radical circus’ visual vocabulary and philosophy of cheap art. He recently launched Radiant Black Press, which, he writes, “disseminates art of unapologetically political, social and spiritual value.”
