THE SILO WELCOMES “SUSAN GOLD PURDY – RECENT PAINTINGS” IN THE HISTORIC GALLERY

"Susan Gold Purdy - Recent Paintings"

image

New Milford, CT - Roxbury resident, and well-known cookbook author-illustrator and instructor, Susan Gold Purdy, will exhibit recent paintings beginning on April 16, 2016, in The Silo Gallery at Hunt Hill Farm, 44 Upland Road, New Milford, CT.  The show’s opening will coincide with The Silo Cooking School’s “Cook Like Julia!” weekend of Julia Child inspired classes. The gallery is opened to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 10 – 5 pm; Sunday 12 – 5 pm.

Purdy’s works - in oil, watercolor, and pastel - reflect her interest in food and farmers’ markets as well as the New England landscape and sites she has visited in France, Italy, and Mexico.  Purdy, a prize-winning author of over 30 cookbooks, is also a realtor and respected visual artist who has painted all her life.  Recently she won a prize for her pastel, “Artichokes, Paris Market”, at the Juried Summer Show, Gallery 25 in New Milford.
Purdy studied painting in Paris at the Ecôle des Beaux Arts and Académie de la Grande Chaumière, and in New York with artists Robert Kaupelis, Esteban Vicente, and Anthony Toney, and worked as a textile designer before turning to writing and illustrating. Found in many collections and showing locally, her art celebrates these life-long passions.

Purdy’s art, primarily drawn from nature, represents a search for abstract patterns that lie within the realistic image.  “The vision that catches my eye lies somewhere between the surface of objects and just beneath it, in complex layers of light, color, pattern, and design. I try to use the interplay of movement, line, and hue to create paintings that are abstracted from,but related to, visual reality,” she says. 

“Susan was one of our first cooking school instructors here at The Silo, and she is a wonderful example of how a love of land and food can shape a fascinating life and inspire others. We are thrilled to have her back for this show!” said Marie O’Neill, Co-President of the Hunt Hill Farm Trust Board.

Featured Story

“How We Got Here”

An excerpt from the introduction to Ruth & Skitch Henderson's Seasons in the Country, 1990.
We did not go looking for Hunt Hill Farm. It looked for us. In 1967 we were both immersed in a busy urban life. Skitch, as Musical Director of NBC, appeared nightly on the Tonight Show, which taped in New York in those days. Ruth was chairwoman of Friends of City Center and an active fund-raiser and drum-beater for the arts. We had just opened a restaurant, Daly's Dandelion...
