A Group Show of Paintings
by Kathleen L’Hommedieu and Students
Art Show May 30 – July 12
The Sherman Library is pleased to announce a group show of paintings by talented women who have connected and explored their individual creative processes at Studio 130 with Kathleen L’Hommedieu. Artists included in the show are Tricia Anderson, Bonnie Jo Cheron, Amy Dyer, Sue Edelstein, Kathy Flynn, Allison May Jennings, Monika Kenny, Sofie Kirk, Lisa Sachetti Mahon, and Annie McAward plus their teacher, Kathleen L’Hommedieu.
Studio 130, an open, welcoming space in New Milford, provides a unique opportunity to come together and put paint to canvas while sharing tea and conversation. Under the passionate and joyful facilitation of Kathleen L'Hommedieu, small groups of new and seasoned artists join together for eight week sessions. With either a highlighted artist or themed afternoon, each session is a time to explore freedom and playfulness while they work. The sessions end with a group critique, always with support and encouragement of Kathy and participants.
“Painting is freedom, magic, meditative and joyous. I have spent a lifetime gathering beauty while rowing, hiking and spending time outdoors. These beautiful memories are my work” says L’Hommedieu.
With an insatiable palette for learning, L’Hommedieu attended Norwalk Community College and the University of Connecticut where she studied landscape architecture. She also has her Master Gardener Certification and has designed and maintained many private gardens in Connecticut as well as those at the Longshore Golf Course in Westport, Connecticut. In 2008, L’Hommedieu was given a gift of art lessons with Ira Barkoff. These classes and workshops have inspired her to use her collections of sunrises, sunsets and landscapes she has experienced while boating, rowing, traveling abroad or just being immersed in the outdoors. She also uses these creations to inspire her students.
