Deerfield Arts Bank - Close to Home - Grand Opening

Bryan Higgins
South Deerfield, MA. There's a lot of creativity brewing CLOSE TO HOME, the first exhibition for the newest art center in the Pioneer Valley, the Deerfield Arts Bank. This is the creation of artist Jane Trigere who has transformed the former BOA building into a center which will offer exhibitions, art classes and musical entertainment. This first exhibition (curated by me) will feature mostly Deerfield artists including: Candace Bradbury-Carlin, Bryan Higgins, Alicia Renadette, Kerry St. Laurent, Jane Trigere & Marcia Rossi Wise. This "Close to Home" exhibition will take us on a textural and spiritual journeys through various media including impressionistic painting of water (Marcia R. Wise), reuse of fiber history (Alicia Renadette & Jane Trigere), recycled materials (Candace Bradbury-Carlin) and multi-media constructions (Bryan Higgins).

Artists Reception & Grand Opening will be: Sunday, April 6, 2:00 - 4:00 PM

There will be several special events, music and art classes in the coming months. Check our website for further details.

Our first special event after the opening will be the traveling Art Salon on April 17 @ 6:30 PM highlighting various talent in the Pioneer Valley. 

Trigere and Rooney launch The Deerfield Arts Bank in South Deerfield so "Close to Home" with the hopes of engaging all of the talented artists and members of our extended community. Come join us in this exciting new adventure and be part of what happens next.
