THE MONET MAMAS
The Monet Mamas are five friends whose passions for art run deep. Each week we gather at one of our homes, setting up our easels, sharing our latest work, and supporting each other as we struggle to find our “vision” in our paintings. Our weekly work sessions are a mix of painting and critiques, followed by the sharing of food and often joyful conversation and exchange of ideas.
We have all studied painting in various media, in Vermont and in other parts of the world. Several of us had careers as art educators. All of us continue to study art as we attend workshops and classes and work with local artists and professional groups.
The Monet Mamas have had several group shows in Vermont at the Charlotte Senior Center, the Fletcher Allen Healthcare Center, the Dorothy Alling Library, the Deborah Lawson Library, the Gruppe Gallery in Jericho and several other venues in the area. Individual members have exhibited in Vermont, Virginia, South Carolina, New York, Puerto Rico and Norway.
As our name implies, we do not take ourselves too seriously, but we do approach our work with great intensity and the desire to communicate what is in our hearts and souls. We love art, the making of art, and all the energy that comes with it!
