A creek with grasses and trees surrounding it.Gretchen Herrmann


September 29 – October 25, 2020

During most evenings over the past several years, Gretchen has gone for long walks through local landscapes. Along the way she has taken thousands of snapshots with her phone capturing the tranquil and varied vistas, light, and features of her journeys. Gretchen mindfully takes notice of both the grand, sweeping views of twilight skies and fields, as well as nature’s small intricacies and imperfections as a meditative practice of renewal and healing.

The exhibition is presented as a gift to the community by Gretchen and the Paine. It is meant to offer beauty and solace to nurture weary spirits during the trying times of the pandemic. In addition, the exhibition is presented in concert with a special initiative to raise essential funds for the ongoing care and educational programs of the historic Paine estate.
