Join us on June 8 at 4pm for a talk with artist Pennie Brantley. Brantley has had her oil paintings exhibited in museums, art centers, and galleries nationally and internationally for four decades. A Missouri native, Brantley currently lives in the Taconic Mountains of New York. She has worked tirelessly in the art communities in Boston and St. Louis to improve opportunities for artists. A significant achievement was organizing Boston’s ARTcetera ’98, a charity auction and exhibition of 362 artists which raised $600,000 for AIDS patients.
"Perhaps ironically, my attraction to painting unpeopled structures, especially from travels to other cultures, is inspired by a keen awareness of those who have lived in or made them — or simply the march of humanity past them over sometimes centuries. The images that stir my need to paint them have made me more intensely aware of the connectedness people share."
The artist talk and opening reception
are free and open to the public.
