What attracts you to a beautiful painting? Often it’s color, but that’s only part of the story. What draws us in is the interaction of light with the subject matter. Join us in the intimacy of the Drawing Room in historic Marion where painter Bobbi Heath will be on the premises for a live painting demonstration. Explore the collections, see new artisan work, and engage directly with the artist. You’ll learn how the color of an object is affected by light and be surrounded by original artwork created by New England artisans that is available for sale, order or commission.
Special for Artweek, this is a learning based event where participants can gain knowledge on lighting design tips for their home or art collection from an expert. “Light profoundly affects our feelings of well-being, awe and wonder, mood, comfort and motivation. It influences how we perceive all the other elements.” says Lighting Designer, Evelyn Audet of Evelyn Audet Lighting Design. Join us for a presentation on the aspects of light and how good lighting design can transform your home, as well as about fixture selection and working with a lighting designer. This is an opportunity to learn more about how an architect and lighting designer work together. Light refreshments.
