  1. Artifacts Inspire: Art Walk at the Amherst Historical Society

    May 5, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Simeon Strong House

    Our May 5th Art Walk event is the opening reception for Artifacts Inspire, the array of more than twenty fiber art works created by members of Fiber Artists of Western MA. In May 2015 the Amherst Historical Society and Museum invited the nine members of the group to tour the collection and create pieces that reflected their curiosity about and fascination with what they saw. The diversity of pieces in the show includes both literal representations and more abstract musings about the items which the various artists chose to reflect upon. The artifacts are exhibited with the works they inspired. These inspired pieces represent the many media which these nine women explore in their work. Group members include Nina Campagnon, Sally Dillon, Rebecca Fricke, Martha May, Martha G. Robinson, Flo Rosenstock, Debby Slavitt, Margaret Stancer, and Nancy Young.

  2. Artist Reception for Ed Kaplan, Painter

    May 5, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Amherst Town Hall

    Join us on Thursday, May 5, from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM during the Amherst Art Walk for the opening reception of painter Ed Kaplan's exhibit, Photorealistic Paintings, at the Town Hall Gallery. Ed's inspiration comes from the urban landscape. According to the artist, "These metropolitan scenes are an inspiration to me, as they capture a time and place in history, each with their own unique energy, luminosity, and shadow but, most importantly, a story. My objective is to continue exploring and observing these urban dwellings and haunts to find inspiration I can use to capture on my canvas. My ultimate intent is for the observer to gain the same perspective I viewed, when they explore my work. Since I first began painting, I have always painted in a photorealistic style. My current works retain the photo realistic aspect, but with a painterly hand as well."
