Clinton Art Society Tribute Exhibition, Artist of the Month and Fall Member Shows:





Clinton Art Society Tribute Exhibition - Celebrates the History of the Arts in Clinton

Clinton Art Society will be celebrating the art and artists of Clinton with its First Annual Tribute Exhibition November 2, 2017 through January 31, 2018 in the Green Room at Andrews Memorial Town Hall in Clinton.

“As part of our Annual Summer Exhibition, Clinton Art Society includes a section entitled “In Memoriam”, featuring the works of Clinton Art Society members who died in the previous year. As our organization continues to grow – we will be celebrating 70 years in 2019 – many of our founding members who established Clinton Art Society are passing on. We decided to create a special annual exhibition that celebrates the rich history of the arts in Clinton, and features the works of these magnificent and locally renowned artists.” said Liz Egan, President of Clinton Art Society.

Egan is working with the families of longtime CAS member and collector Carolyn Graniss Kirmss, and noted watercolorist Cora Howard, who passed earlier this year. “It is fascinating to hear the stories of the lives of these members and the tremendous impact they had on the lives of fellow artists and the Shoreline arts community at large,” Egan said. 

Egan was contacted by the family of Carolyn Graniss Kirmss, a Clinton resident and longtime member and friend of Clinton Art Society who passed in June 2017. Her daughter, Cindy Kuester, currently a Durham resident, made her aware of a large collection of paintings her mother had acquired over the last 50 years. Cindy had carefully placed them in temperature-controlled storage in Clinton and Egan went to see and document the paintings in July. Soon after, Egan met with Arthur Howard, son of the noted Clinton 

watercolorist, 96-year old Cora Howard who passed in late Spring 2017, regarding his mother's extensive collection of watercolors.

Currently, Clinton Art Society has scheduled two receptions. The first on Thursday, December 7 from 5-7 pm will introduce the exhibition and provide educational opportunities about the arts in Clinton. The second reception is scheduled for Thursday, January 25 from 5-7 pm will be both celebratory as well as educational. Both receptions are meant to provide area citizens and collectors ample opportunity to see the works and meet the artists and families represented in the exhibition. The provenance of the works will also be shared reflecting the rich history of the arts in Clinton. This Tribute Show will be just that, a tribute to the arts and history of the arts in Clinton.

Artist of the Month: Cora Howard (1920 – 2016)
