This Bi-Annual event benefits the Londonderry Historical Society.
Every two years, the GMG invites local artists to display their art work at the Custer Sharp House, home of the Londonderry Arts & Historical Society. Art work is paired with floral interpretations created by GMG members to capture and complement the theme and color of each painting, watercolor and other artistic creations . Included in the show is student artwork from Flood Brook School, Long Trail School and Burr and Burton Academy.
The Custer Sharp House, a perfect venue for this exhibit and sale, was the summer residence of Bernadine Custer Sharp, a prolific 20th-century American painter, illustrator and WPA muralist who worked in New York City and summered in Vermont.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the artwork is donated to the Londonderry Art & Historical Society to support ongoing renovations at the Custer Sharp House.
2019 Art In Bloom at Custard Sharp House
Art of local artists paired with floral interpretations created by GMG members captured the radiance and color of Vermont’s landscapes. Included in the show was student artwork from Flood Brook School.
A special pairing for this event was GMG member Barbara O’Donnell and her granddaughter Nora O’Donnell, a student at The Long Trail School. As a grandmother, past GMG president and dedicated gardener, Barbara was thrilled to design a flower arrangement to capture the mountain and seascape theme of Nora’s painting entitled “Catalonia." “LAHS is thrilled to have GMG and local artists celebrating summer in the space that Bernadine left for community events,” stated LAHS President Annie Campbell. “We are thankful that proceeds will go toward keeping art and history alive in Londonderry.”
