Nutmeg Pastelist Exhibit – May 5 – 10, 2013
Every year, for a week during the month of May, the Historical Society of Glastonbury’s Museum on the Green features a local artist. In the past, some of the local artists featured have included Christopher Gurshin, Lynn A. Damon, Josie Campbell Dellenbaugh, Harry White and Dave Magee just to name a few. The Glastonbury Historical Society is proud to announce Glastonbury Art’s Nutmeg Pastelists as this year’s featured artists. The Museum on the Green is located at 1944 Main Street, corner of Main and Hubbard Streets, Glastonbury, Connecticut.
The Nutmeg Pastelists’ week-long exhibit will kick off with a special celebratory reception on Sunday May 5th from 1pm to 4pm at the Museum on the Hubbard Green. The reception is open to the public and all are invited to join. After the Sunday reception the exhibit will be open Monday thru Friday, 9am to 5pm, with Friday May 10th being the last day. On Thursday, May 9th, from 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm, the ladies will demonstrate the art of pastel at the museum. A selection of the Nutmeg Pastelists work will be for sale with a portion of the sales being donated to the Historical Society of Glastonbury.
The reception, demonstration and admission to the exhibit are FREE.
About the Nutmeg Pastelists: The Nutmeg Pastelists are six like-minded artists who met as students at Glastonbury Arts in 2004. The Nutmeg Pastelists are Susan Bosworth, Patricia Bullock, Helen Davis, Linda Gotta, Lynda Regina and Patricia Trapp. Several years later, the decision was made to work without the guidance of a regular teacher. Since they still wanted to paint together and were working on exhibits together, they arranged for studio space for regular painting sessions. They meet once a week to paint and critique each other’s work. Having other artists whose opinions you trust to look at your work in progress is an important part of their painting process. They appreciate having another “trained eye” to critique their paintings without reservation. They regularly attend workshops with master pastelists and paint independently in their own studios. They have exhibited as a group and independently and are all award winning artists.
