Presenting the first in a series of exciting, new exhibitions, Brinton Artists in Residence, beginning this September. The 2019 Brinton Artists in Residence show features six diverse, nationally recognized artists who were invited for two-week residencies in 2018 to create art en plein air. This year’s inaugural exhibit, on display in the Jacomien Mars Reception Gallery beginning September 7, includes nearly fifty works in oil, pastel and watercolor by Victor Juhasz (Averill Park, NY), Jessica Garrett (Glendale, AZ), John Potter (Red Lodge, MT), Denise LaRue Mahlke (Waco, TX), Terri Wells (Austin, TX) and Jacob Aguiar (Scarborough, ME).
The Brinton’s Artists in Residence program allows artists the unique opportunity to sketch, draw and paint on The Brinton grounds and also on other scenic locations throughout the area. Resident artists are featured in a group exhibition in the fall of the following year of their residency.
A reception to meet and visit with the 2018 invited artists takes place at The Brinton Museum on Saturday, September 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. The artists’ reception is offered free and open to the public.
The Brinton Artists in Residence exhibit continues through October 20. This exhibition is made possible by generous contributions from Tom & Lisa Thompson, the Edwin T. Meredith Foundation, the Richard Hammer Trust, the Tucker Foundation and Fine Art Connoisseur.
