Artist Talk with Julia Einstein – Followed by Reception

May 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for an Art Exhibition Talk and Reception with the Artist, Julia Einstein.

// ABOUT THE ARTIST: JULIA EINSTEIN //

Julia Einstein makes paintings as if walking into a garden room with an artist’s eye on nature in vivid compositions, elegant arrangements, and painterly surfaces. Her work is about creating a connection for interpreting — between maker and viewer. The artist’s recent work is a delve into flora and history, the ideas of the women who were botanical pioneers inspired by the natural world, early needleworkers motivated by cherished symbols, and creators of gardens influenced by a love of community. She is currently the Artist in Residence at Raleigh City Farm where she makes her home in Raleigh, North Carolina.

A recent collaborative project shares a year in the process of creating an exhibition with @maineflorathreeviews. The artist has created “Herbarium” at the Stanley – Whitman House in Farmington, Connecticut, was included in “Perspectives: Art & History” at the Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk, Maine, and produced “The Peony Project / Paintings” for Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine. Her “Modern Botanicals” series is informed by the 19th century trailblazers who furthered the field of botany with their art, and inspired her to create an herbarium, make paint appear like the quilts, and embroidered silk, and use a palette of saturated color to create unusual color schemes. The thrill of working from the tiny to the oversized results in “Flower Power.” She continues to paint “Flower Portraits” of bouquets gathered from her artist’s garden. She is represented by Portland Art Gallery in Portland, Maine.

// ABOUT STANLEY-WHITMAN HOUSE //

In 1935, Stanley-Whitman House was established as Farmington’s first museum. It is a nationally recognized historic house museum and living history center that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of early Farmington, Connecticut. Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture.

Located in the historic village of Farmington, the museum facility centers on a circa 1720 National Historic Landmark house furnished with period antiques to reflect the everyday activities of Colonial life in Connecticut. Surrounding the house are period-raised bed gardens, an apple orchard, and heritage stone walls.

The public service areas of the museum, constructed in 2004, include a modern classroom, a period tavern room, a post-and-beam Welcome Center, a research library, an exhibit gallery, the Nancy Conklin History Gallery, and a collection storage area.

In addition to managing Memento Mori, Farmington’s ancient cemetery on Main Street, and the Village Green, located at the intersection of Routes 4 and 10, the museum also oversees the Scott Swamp Cemetery on Route 6. The Stanley-Whitman House is supported in part by the Farmington Village Green and Library Association.
