Due to the rainy weather today (July 8), the en plein air painting fundraising event at Miller Point (Bremen) will be held on SUNDAY, JULY 11 from 1-5 PM. Hope to see you there!
Please join us as we welcome the summer’s first art show with painter Sharon Marchi, who will be hanging her paintings from Bremen and Havana for the month of July in the library!
A trip to Cuba in 2016 and the beauty of the coast in and around Bremen provide the inspiration for the show. Each painting represents a moment in time. After a windstorm in October forced the fishermen to beach their boats in the marsh off Greenland Cove, Marchi was struck by the afternoon light that illuminated the safety of this refuge. During the Covid shutdown, traps remained stacked on Poland’s dock well into the summer. During a spring morning calm, the water mirrored the multicolored traps in perfect clarity. In Cuba, the colonial architecture and pastel buildings appeal to the artist’s eye. The Cuban people, however, portray the life of a previous century that still exists: the street cleaner pushing his cart past flaking stucco, the musician entertaining long after Hemingway frequented the bar, and the bicycle taxi driver who is one of many in the city. Family portraits, landscapes, and still life paintings will be displayed.
We hope to see you there!
