Celebrating the Good Work that Sustains Our Community

Art+Soul: June 5, 2014

Dunkiel Saunders invites you to join us for the third annual Art+Soul celebration at our office on June 5, 2014, from 6-9 p.m.

Over the last twelve years, our law firm has been privileged to work with people all around Vermont who are engaged in creative and meaningful enterprises that make a real difference in our communities. Helping these inspiring individuals, nonprofits, and businesses succeed is what makes the practice of law so fulfilling for all of us at Dunkiel Saunders.

We created Art+Soul to celebrate their good work, raise money for great causes, and help people forge new connections in Vermont’s vibrant creative economy. Each year, Art+Soul benefits a different local nonprofit and features local art inspired by, or connected to, the nonprofit’s mission. All art will be sold, and proceeds from art sales will be split between the artists and the nonprofit.


Champlain Housing TrustThis year, the event will benefit Champlain Housing Trust and will feature more art from local artists, all inspired by CHT’s mission, which is to provide affordable housing opportunities for Vermonters in Chittenden, Grand Isle and Franklin Counties.

Art+Soul 2013 was a huge success, and we hope you’ll join us again this year on June 5, 2014, from 6 to 9 p.m. at our office at 91 College Street in Burlington. Come out to celebrate, make some new connections, and enjoy Burlington at its best during the Discover Jazz Festival.

Call to Artists

Art+Soul is seeking submissions of creative pieces in any medium that are inspired by or connected to the Champlain Housing Trust’s mission. The artwork does not need to be newly-created work; it just needs to be related to CHT’s mission. Artists will participate in a one-night benefit and event on June 5th, 2014 in which the artwork will be sold with a 50 – 50 split going to CHT and to the artist, and you set the price!

Please click here for the Art Submission Form. The art submission deadline is May 16, 2014. For more information about the event or art submissions please contact Christy Mitchell or Geoff Hand.
