BRATTLEBORO: "Two roads diverged:" Painting and Sculpture by Nine Women

mixed media painting by Ann Stokes
An ongoing exhibit at The Dianich Gallery 
Weekends in March 2013:
Fridays & Saturdays, 12-3 p.m.

"Two roads diverged:" Painting and Sculpture by women who have started––or returned to––making art in later life

Artists included in the show are Barbara Baribeau (sculpture), Arlene Distler (painting, and curator), Kathleen Gatto-Gurney (sculpture), Marcia Hammond (painting), Marya Koskoris (painting), Lynn Martin (painting), Meris Morrison (painting), Ann Stokes (painting), and Muriel Wolf (mixed media mono-prints).

A surprising exhibit by women who have been writers, dancers, teachers, all the various paths that did NOT lead to a life in the visual arts, and have discovered or returned to their muse in their later years.

"Dream of Haiti," mixed media by Meris Morrison
