A Sense of Place, June 4-30, 2022

Over the past year, I have been working along with 4 other artists to put together an exhibition to benefit Louison House, a non-profit organization that works to support people who are struggling with homelessness and housing insecurity issues. We’ve been very fortunate to get the attention of New England Public Media, (NEPM-TV), who just aired a beautifully done feature called A Sense of Place on their program Connecting Point. Artist Debi Pendell and I also had the honor of being being interviewed by Debby Dane on Willinet, Williamstown’s Public Television Station.

Both these features are wonderful, I highly recommend them!!

Two events are coming up before the end of June. I hope you’ll join us!

Saturday, June 25, 2022, 4 – 5 p.m.: Artist Talks

Debi Pendell, Diane Reed Sawyer, Sarah Sutro, Betty Vera will talk about their work, and answer your questions.  Light refreshments provided, all are welcome. We hope you will continue to support Louison House through artwork purchases — 50% goes directly to this essential organization!

Thursday, June 30, 2022, 5 –7 p.m.: Closing Celebration

We will be raffling off 4 pieces of art, one from each artist. Be a winner, buy some tickets and take home artwork!! 

Kathy Keeser will be at the gallery in person on the 30th to talk further about the challenges that Louison faces, and their successes, as they help members of our communities through difficult times.

We will also share a Connecting Point’s broadcast A Sense of Place focusing on the collaboration between artists Deb Pendell, Diane Reed Sawyer, Sarah Sutro, Betty Vera, and Kathy Kesser, Executive Director of Louison House. The artists were filmed in their studios, talking about their art process, and how we decided to put together this benefit exhibition. Kathy was interviewed at Louison House, and talks about how our collaboration came about.
