MILFORD — “Snow,” a group art exhibition of winter landscapes, will be presented at the Hotel Fauchere in Milford. An opening reception in honor of the artists will be held at the Fauchere from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18. Eight en plein air artists present winterscapes from the Delaware Water Gap and Kittatinny Ridge region of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well as scenes from New York State, Maine, and beyond. The exhibition will remain on view and available for sale through March 31. The works focus on the beauty of the natural world and the grace that comes with the first snowfall of the season. The exhibition captures the change and excitement of winter to come, inviting us to consider nature’s beauty as the seasons shift. "Snow" is curated by New York gallerist Hal Bromm, who founded the first contemporary gallery in Tribeca in 1975. In 1981, he presented Pennsylvanian Keith Haring’s first one-man show in New York. A well-known preservationist, Brom served as president of New York’s Historic Districts Council. He was a design consultant to Richard Snyder and Sean Strub during the restoration and reopening of the Hotel Fauchere. “Hal Bromm’s eye for art, design and emerging talent, as well as his accomplishments in the field of historic preservation, is legendary,” said Strub, the Hotel Fauchere’s owner. "I’m so proud that he has agreed to be the hotel’s first guest curator and has assembled such a spectacular group of artists for the show." Many of the featured are friends who have exhibited together throughout the region—include Rita Baragona, Lois Dodd, Tom Keough, Barbara Kulicke, Arthur Kvarnstrom, Simeon Lagodich, Ken Metcalf, and St. Clair Sullivan. Works in a variety of media will be on view, including oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, watercolor and pastel. The opening reception is open to the public. RSVP to events@HotelFauchere.com.
