  2. Awakenings Current Work by Kate Longmaid and Tom Merwin

    June 18, 2019, 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

    The T. W. Wood Gallery at 46 Barre St in the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, Vermont is pleased to announce Awakenings; an exhibit featuring current work by Kate Longmaid and Tom Merwin. The T.W. Wood Gallery is honored to have their work at the gallery. Through a contemporary approach to portraiture and still life, Kate Longmaid explores what is revealed in the intimate moments of seeing. With still life, Longmaid is drawn to subject matter that is ephemeral. Captured in fleeting moments, these paintings reflect on the transient nature and beauty of life. Tom Merwin's painting process expresses a layering of symbol and spirituality, using nature as a doorway to the expression of existential concerns. Traveling the trails through the Kittatiny, Catskill and Green Mountains have been a continued influence and resource for Merwin.
