New Milford, CT - Roxbury resident, and well-known cookbook author-illustrator and instructor, Susan Gold Purdy, will exhibit recent paintings beginning on April 16, 2016, in The Silo Gallery at Hunt Hill Farm, 44 Upland Road, New Milford, CT. The gallery is opened to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 10 – 5 pm; Sunday 12 – 5 pm.
Purdy’s art, primarily drawn from nature, represents a search for abstract patterns that lie within the realistic image. “The vision that catches my eye lies somewhere between the surface of objects and just beneath it, in complex layers of light, color, pattern, and design. I try to use the interplay of movement, line, and hue to create paintings that are abstracted from,but related to, visual reality,” she says.
“Susan was one of our first cooking school instructors here at The Silo, and she is a wonderful example of how a love of land and food can shape a fascinating life and inspire others. We are thrilled to have her back for this show!” said Marie O’Neill, Co-President of the Hunt Hill Farm Trust Board.

Skitch, as Musical Director of NBC, appeared nightly on the Tonight Show, which taped in New York in those days. Ruth was chairwoman of Friends of City Center and an active fund-raiser and drum-beater for the arts. We had just opened a restaurant, Daly's Dandelion...
