Many of the artists will be demonstrating their work. Stop by, enjoy a glass of wine, chat with the artists and bid on some fabulous art in the Silent Auction.
Imagination into Art continues on Saturday at 9 a.m. until noon at the Red Barn and Wilmot Farmers Market on the Town Green.
Here are just a few of the artists you will meet on Friday and Saturday:
Marc Beerman, wildlife and landscape photographer
“The camera allows me to explore and capture the innocence, simplicity, and beauty of the world around me. It is my passion to find the perspective that captures not only the beauty of the subject but a lasting memory.”
Learn more about Marc and his work on his website.
Dana Dakin, bookmaker
Dana Dakins moved to the Old Firehouse in Wilmot in 1995 and founded of WomensTrust. In 2011, she changed direction and left WomensTrust . As part of the transition, she began a page-per-day visual journal to process loss and uncover the next leg of her journey.
“For many of us, roles in life we are called to play wear us down and we unwittingly drift into the discard pile. Journaling is embraced as a technique to get through those transitions, but are dropped from the sheer boredom of self-reflection. Setting out with a quest for proactive healing, I broke through the constraints of a rigid practice to thread words and ideas and visuals from the unconscious to a renewed commitment to life’s next calling.”
An American Impressionist, Marilyn’s zest for life is evident in her Alla Prima works in oil. She uses a limited palette of red, yellow, blue and white. In 2009 Marilyn had the distinguished honor of having one of her paintings placed into the permanent collection of the Tennessee Governor’s Residence.
