2021 Art Quilt
The Art Quilt is a group project created by members with a "Color of Light" theme to benefit our Art Scholarship and the Dedham Food Pantry. Our members created these 4"x4" miniature masterpieces at home in the medium of their choice.

This miniature painting was inspired by my love of the outdoors and all things in nature. My favorite time of the year is the springtime when the world seems to come alive with light and hope for things to come.
Fall at Adam's Farm, oil by Julie Cordonnier
I attended a few art classes (taught by Rosemarie Morelli) in the fall of 2020 at Adam's Farm in Walpole. The weather was nice all fall so I returned to paint with a friend. This piece is an attempt to capture a fall day at this special place.
Yellow Flower, watercolor by Nancy Present-Van Broekhoven
This was originally part of a large piece of art that didn't seem to work - except for this small flower.
Light on Carson, South Boston MA, photograph by JoAnne Rose Foley
In sunlight there is beaming white light. "The Color of Light" when all the rainbow colors (VIBGYOR) integrate into a single point, it puts together beaming white light.
Sunset Sail, watercolor by Nancy Sally
Photo of sailboat on Santa Maria Island, Florida
Adirondack Moon, oil by Robin Western
This 4x4 was inspired by a photo I took from the porch of our cabin in the Adirondacks. It was a very still late afternoon and the moon reflected light on the lake.
My Crabapple Tree, oil by Sandra Berejik
It’s about my crabapple tree…. I ask myself which is more beautiful, the flowery petals in the Springtime or the treasure of fruit in the Summertime?
Crazy Light, silkscreen by Gail Hansen
Light beams shooting from everywhere
Tiny Garden, pastel by Jodi Traub
Saw this and was inspired to do a small colorful pastel that I had not done in a long time. It was cheerful and bright on a dreary and grey day.
The Thinker, drawing by Keith McClelland
Peabody Essex Museum Auguste Rodin exhibit in 2016; dramatic lighting of "The Thinker."
In Memoriam, oil by Catherine Perrone
The art of Wolf Kahn brings me joy. The way he plays with color somehow brings light out of the canvas into my spirit, leaving a sense of peace. Wolf Kahn 1927- 2020
Summertime Roses, paint and collage by Nan Daly
My mother's rose garden
Lunar Luminaria, watercolor by Naomi Wilsey
Being fascinated by full moons, I have been painting a series of made-up landscapes that include full moons. This miniature is of a full moon in the winter that looks like a luminaria (candle lantern) when lighted.
Poppies, watercolor by Nan Daly
We will need bright flowers in this dark winter of 2020.
Endurance, watercolor by Diane Johnson
This fall day it was cold and snowy as I passed it and decided to plan it for a summer outing instead. I found this scene refreshing with the cool water running and the clean white snow cleansing the ground. The rustic quality of the old mill building drew me back in time as well as forward. This strength, endurance and forward thinking replicates what I needed in 2020. The snowy day slightly blurs the view of the future without stopping your progression into the scene.
Dawn-Star Island, oil by Barbara Reynolds
The skies over Star are beautiful. For the reference photo I got up early and captured the sunrise.
Happy Heart, paper collage by Joan Onofrey
A heart, a sea turtle, and a wonderful word - Believe - all put together makes me happy.
Dedham Autumn, watercolor by Cindy Mootz
This was inspired by a walk in Dedham this fall.
Christmas Light, watercolor by Randa Khuri
Hoping that the light of Christmas will spread peace and love in our world today.
Holiday Sparkle, acrylic by Brenda O'Connor
This ornament represents, to me, the color of light, red, green, blue, and then so many possibilities.
Yellow Collage, collage by Lauren Kinghorn
Yellow warmth spreads over the art like a caged pig in a blanket helping to make the best of 2020.
Watching Waiting, watercolor by Peter Shaw
A gap I saw in a stone wall in the woods, I imagined a fox standing there, watching.
Golden Hour, oil by Mary Hudson Gillis
The sunset and all of its varied hues of color as well as the dramatic clouds has long given me joy! I often try to capture the breathtaking sunsets outdoors and from my studio windows!
