Kimball Farms Life Care to Open Spring Art Exhibit on May 19

LENOX — Kimball Farms Life Care invites the public to an opening reception of its spring art show on Sunday, May 19 from 3 to 5 p.m. at 235 Walker St. in Lenox. The exhibit, LIGHT WORKS, in the Connector Gallery, features folk artists Paul Graubard, Tom Warner, and Michael Wolski, and collage and pastel artist Roselle Kline Chartock.

Graubard’s humor-filled work is full of Yiddish/Jewish images and themes, while Warner’s storybook paintings, inspired by Grandma Moses and Norman Rockwell, are New England Americana. Meanwhile, Wolski draws on his Polish/Ukrainian background to create his playful, light-hearted paintings. Kline Chartock has taught locally at all levels and authored several books, most recently one on Elvis Presley’s Jewish connection. Her collage work juxtaposes vintage photographs from a variety of sources, and her evocative pastel pieces reflect the artist’s own pleasure in design and color.

The reception will feature piano music by Karin Tchougourian, and light refreshments will be served. The public is invited to attend or to view the exhibit any day through June 24.
