Weston loves artists, art, and community! So we’re grateful to Abby Raeder of the former Vermont Institute of Contemporary Arts, for curating four mini-exhibits in the Weston Playhouse lobby this season. Art installations will run from June 30 through September 5, according to the schedule below. We’ll launch three of the exhibits with a Sunday afternoon reception where guests can meet the artists and enjoy a glass of champagne before a MainStage show. A percentage of all art sold will go to support the theatre company and its programs.
June 30th through July 11th | Jeanne Carbonetti | Opening Reception July 5th at 2 pm
Carbonetti has been a professional and international artist for more than 30 years. Her primary medium is watercolor, concentrating on the complexity of color transparency in her nature-themed work. Jeanne’s meditative landscapes and florals celebrate the delicate beauty and cadence of our surroundings. Jeanne is a resident of Chester, VT. WEBSITE.
July 16th through July 25th | Jane Davies
Davies is a full time contemporary artist working in collage, painting, and encaustic. Looking to nature for inspiration, Jane’s abstract paintings have elements of color, shape, line, and texture which excite and enthrall. She offers workshops nationwide, with a focus on helping people find a playful approach to art. Jane resides in Rupert, VT. WEBSITE.
July 30th through August 22nd | Harry Rich | Opening Reception August 2nd at 2 pm
A prolific artist, lecturer, and instructor, Harry Rich describes his paintings as “children of the New York School, that strive to build on their heritage, while remaining within the tradition of modernism.” He creates abstract and nonrepresentational painting, unfettered with distracting literal images that evoke poetic or meditative capacities in their audience. Rich lives and works in Sandgate, VT. WEBSITE.
August 27th through September 5th | Scott Morgan | Opening Reception August 30th at 2 pm
Morgan is an artist and musician, originally from New York. An extensive traveler, his experiences have influenced his abstract expressionism with a deep sense of style, complimented by an energetic color palette. There is an intriguing melodic rhythm and movement to the sculptural aspect of his work. Scott presently resides in Bellow Falls, VT. WEBSITE.
