Meet MaryEllen Hackett MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30 6:00 AT THE WILTON LIBRARY
While at Weir Farm I plan to build on the smaller observational paintings I created while in residence there in 2014. Having learned about the connection with the Center For Contemporary Printmaking, I will create an edition based on this poem:
Some places and things, I want to share- Which I left where I found them, in case you ever get there yourself.
It is a concept in development, but one I want to pursue with larger themes associated with the NPS centennial.
Since leaving Weir Farm my artwork has evolved to become a closer study of our national parks and their ever growing sense of home and shelter for me, as well as the desire to document my experience for others. I look forward to returning to Weir farm having already found an affinity for its buildings and landscapes, and to now focus on experimentation within my artwork.
