Blue House Without Ghost , 2004, Don Gummer

Eight accomplished artists who live in the area, including Ellen Griesedieck, Eric Forstmann, Richard Rothschild, Peter Steiner, Don Gummer, James Mayer, Ira Barkoff and Duncan Hannah, will open their studios this weekend to benefit the Sharon Historical Society. The artists will be on hand throughout the weekend to discuss their work and answer questions.  To kick off the event, there will be a festive gallery opening on Friday evening in the Sculpture Garden on the grounds of the Sharon Historical Society. The exhibition, The Artist and the Object, curated by Lynn Kearcher and Stephanie Plunkett, examines the relationship between the artistic mind and the everyday object.  It features new works by Peter Woytuk, Warren Prindle, Carl Chaiet, Patty Mullins, Karen Kellogg, Peter Hill, Terre Lefferts, Victor Pesce and Joan Jardine.

Thanks to the generousity of the artists in this exhibition, 20% of the purchase price of all art sold during the Studio Tour weekend, and for 30 days following the tour, will be donated to the museum.
