As “America’s Best Known Living Folk Artist,” Kimble has enjoyed a more than 50-year career as a fine artist, educator, and antique collector to create a casual but sophisticated style of American Folk Art. His art features the animals, rural landscapes, and buildings of Vermont. As Kimble himself says, his style is “reminiscent of something that surrounds a person every day. It is simplistic, yet abstract.” Kimble will share his perspectives on a wide range of topics, including:
- His art and career
- The value of art to society and community
- Public art, art education and the importance of funding the arts
- The re-invigoration of the town of Brandon, VT supported by the Brandon Artists Guild, of which Kimble is a leading member
As a special treat, you’ll be able to make your own "Warren Kimble Project." Kimble will direct us in painting leaves we collect and then "printing" them onto a bowl/box (TBD). Only $25 per project covers all the supplies you’ll need (optional).
This amazing weekend includes two nights' lodging at Minnowbrook (an Adirondack Great Camp), six delicious meals prepared by Minnowbrook’s gourmet chef, and two receptions. Refreshments are always available. We’ll gather on Friday afternoon before dinner and our weekend ends after lunch on Sunday. The cost is $510/person for a single room and $455/person in a double room.
