November brings Linda Packard to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program. Linda’s work is expressive, responding to direct observation in nature. She has a personal relationship with trees. She often treats trees as figures, gestural and dancing. She was deeply moved by two 2014 art shows in New York in which the artists used trees either as the subject or as a source of expression. Since then, it has been her goal to produce a major body of work exploring her personal expression of ‘tree.’   See registration link for details. Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested. Register online or call 203-762-6334.
