After being closed for more than two months, the Paine Art Center and Gardens reopened to the public on Tuesday, May 26. Admittance is by reservation only, and the Paine requests all visitors to bring and wear face masks or coverings indoors. Through October 31, admission is 50% off regular rates.
For this exhibition presented in the Paine’s Main Gallery and an online gallery, Gretchen Herrmann selected more than 80 photographs from thousands she has taken during evening walks through local landscapes. The images on view convey the spectrum of her experiences as well as the peace and beauty she wishes to share with others.
Originally scheduled for the summer of 2020 at the Paine, this exhibition has been rescheduled to the summer of 2021. Featuring 100 pairs of shoes from iconic designer Stuart Weitzman's extensive private collection, the exhibition shows how shoes have transcended their utilitarian purpose to become objects of design and desire.
