Art Exhibit: "The Tunbridge Fair"


“The Tunbridge Fair,” a solo show of paintings by artist Rae Newell, of Bridgewater Corners will be on display at the Tunbridge Public Library until September 5, 2019. There will be a reception on Sunday, July 21, from 2-4 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

"This show is in honor of the Tunbridge Fair," Newell said. "I have been going there for many years, finding wonderful subjects to paint, from the horse and ox pulls, to the midway, to the people and the animals they care for. Originally from Connecticut, my love of the Vermont landscape and especially the fair have attracted my attention for 25 years."

Newell has taught painting for over two decades, most recently at the Artistree in Pomfret, Vt. Her primary medium is oil painting, both in the studio and plain air ala prima painting.

The library is located on 289 Route 110 in the center of Tunbridge village, across from the Post Office, about five miles north of Route 14. The library’s hours are Monday and Wednesday, 3-8 p.m., Thursday and Friday, 3-6 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call librarian Jean Wolfe at 802-889-9404 for more information.
