Vail Valley Art Guild set to host Second Friday exhibit in Eagle
The Vail Valley Art Guild is hosting its Second Friday exhibit at its Eagle Gallery and the Featured artist is Christine Sena. Chris takes classes at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards and this year has been a challenge to paint at home and come up with new ideas for art. A few years ago a neighbor gave her brother a photo of their Dad hanging out at Dunkin Donuts with his buddies. This photo developed into a small painting, followed by others of her hometown, Medford, MA. This small exhibit will be part of a larger one which Chris and a fellow Medford artist are preparing for a show next year.
Medford was founded in 1630 and many structures from the Colonial era are still around. Situated on the Mystic River and Mystic Lakes, it was know for ship building. Paul Revere rode through the town on his way to Lexington to warn the colonists about British troops on the move. The history shifted in the 70s when the Italian and Irish mafia played a large part in daily events. It was at that point that Chris moved away, first to San Francisco, then to Northern Virginia and now in Colorado.
Come join us at the Eagle Gallery, 108 W. 2nd Street, Eagle, from 4-8, Friday, April 9th.
