For the fifteenth consecutive year, the Luxton-Jones Gallery will host its annual “Celebrate the Holidays” Art Exhibit and Sale. The exhibit will open on Friday, Nov. 29 and feature many new oil paintings of Shelburne by internationally-renowned artist Carolyn Walton, a former Shelburne resident, and new pastel paintings by Athenia Schinto of Shelburne.

The exhibit will introduce a collection of exquisite small plein air paintings with different vistas from our wonderful Shelburne Town Beach that Walton created during her extended visit to Shelburne in late September. This collection of oils was created at different times of day, culminating with a view of a gorgeous sunset behind the Adirondack Mountains. These paintings are sure to evoke wonderful memories of warm summer days at our Town Beach during the upcoming cold winter days!

Other exhibitors include Betty Ball, Gail Bessette, and jewelry artist Tineke Russell who will show her custom-designed jewelry collection entitled “Beads Work.”

The “Celebrate the Holidays” exhibit will be on display through Jan. 20, 2014.
