Strong House Museum- Contemporary Art & Antiques!

Strong House Museum,  67 Amity St., Amherst
(to left of Jones Library) will feature the artwork of Rosemary Barrett, Christin Couture, Adele Mattera & William Hosie amongst historical objects from Amherst's past. Christin's encaustic and ethereal paintings are featured next to Emily Dickinson's white dress and Adele Mattera's installation has a conversation with Mabel Loomis Todd watercolor flowers with her installation gracing the center of Mabel's exhibit. These artists work engages the past with contemporary sensibilities with echos of the past.
Strong House will be participating in this week's Amherst Arts Walk as well as the Grand Opening of the Amherst Biennial on Saturday, Oct. 6, 5 - 8 PM.

See how history speaks to the present!
