GREENSBORO – Almost 15 artists met on August 20, to paint their interpretations of a Vincent Van Gogh image. The participants met under the tent in the backyard of the Greensboro Free Library (GFL) where numerous prints of Van Gogh’s artistic output were hung as inspiration from ropes connecting the tent poles. One Van Gogh painting of a village under a night sky inspired Greensboro’s Rosann Hickey to include Greensboro’s Caspian Lake and the village’s iconic church.
The event was organized and hosted by artists Beth Meachem and Nicole Mann, who provided paints and canvases as well as a Van Gogh-inspired sheet cake and other refreshments. Participants represented a wide range of ages, from six years of age on up and came from neighboring towns as well as Glover and St. Johnsbury. Upon conclusion of the two-hour event, participants showed their work and explained their interpretations, which will be put on display in the GFL gallery before being claimed by their creators. GFL Trustee Beth Meachem notes the library will be offering more free events like this in the future.
