Local Arts and Culture
We are finding holiday mixers at Washington Art Association and and The Gallery in Morris, and South Kent-based Peter Kirkiles’ work appears in a new installation across from the Wadsworth Atheneum, in good company with the likes of Tom Doyle. We visit Thorncrest Farms barn, a hidden treasure of artisanal chocolate, Cornwall for Danielle Mailer’s work at Souterrain Gallery, and Hotchkiss School in Lakeville for a truly educational survey of early American Landscape Painting, including the work of James Preston, Edwin White, Edward Lear, E.E. Cummings and others.
