December Exhibit - Memories
November 26, 2013 - January 5, 2014
“Happy House” a pastel by Laura Hickman is a remembrance of Summer picnics, chasing lightening bugs, breakfast on the sun porch, smells of camphor from the closets, crickets, mice, clocks ticking and chiming all at once, the smell of Swedish meatballs wafting from the kitchen and sweet wood burning in the fireplace, creaking floors, cracking plaster, old windows with sticks to hold them open and wax fruit in the bowl on the dining room table.
Lesley McCaskill is showing “A Day on the Farm.” Since coming to Sussex county one of Lesley’s recurrent themes have been farms. Raised near Washington, DC the rural area has intrigued her with its beauty and activity. Painting on site she has enjoyed the sounds of the animals and their movements. This work was painted this fall at a petting farm on Route 88 in Milton. Just looking at the painting brings back the experience of that painting day.
