In just a couple of weeks, the largest group of paintings I have ever created will be divided up, and head off to new homes. It’s a bittersweet moment for any artist to say “good bye” to just one painting, let alone almost 40 all at once, TheWoodstock Vignettes.
As an artist, one of the biggest compliments I can receive from someone is “You've inspired me”. It could be a student, a collector, or just an admirer. My great hope with this group of paintings is that I have inspired more people to believe in, and support, the dream of the Elm Street Cultural ArtsVillage.
The Elm Street Cultural Arts Village will embrace all aspects of creativity, from the visual arts to the theater, the musical stage to the culinary arts. Whatever you are passionate about, whatever feeds your spirit, you will find an aspect of it that can be nurtured through this endeavor.
The painting Auction, “Glow”, will take place on the Event Green on September 20th. Live jazz music from Tayrn and the Wednesday Trio, hors d’oeuvres from one of your favorite downtown restaurants, a cash bar, entertainment from our fabulous Emcee and Elm Street Theater actor Joe Lemmo will all come together under the huge tents.
The money raised by the auction of the Woodstock Vignettes Paintings will benefit the restoration of the Reeves Home: the future site of an Art Gallery, art classrooms, and studio spaces.
Registration is required for this special event, as seating is limited. Please visit www.elmstreetarts.org/glow/ by September 12th to purchase tickets.
