When: Oct. 5-Feb. 10 2019
Phone: 802-257-0124
In her solo exhibit “To Another Place,” the 86-year-old abstract painter shows a whopping 50 paintings. Many of them have not appeared in public before. Mason lives and gardens in Brattleboro during the summer and spends the rest of the year in her native New York City. She grew up under the influence of her mother, Alice Trumbull Mason, who cofounded the American Abstract Artists group. And so Mason was literally born into what would become her métier: vibrant, luminous, lyrical abstractions on canvas. She studied at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine and the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice. While in Italy, Mason married fellow painter Wolf Kahn; in 1968, the couple purchased a farm in Brattleboro. Their part-time presence has long enhanced Vermont’s art community. “To Another Place,” on view through February 10, includes works from Mason’s Italian period and the six decades that followed.
