Event Details

The Loft Gallery at The Smithy welcomes an extraordinary exhibit of abstract drawings and paintings by Hudson Valley artist, Rowan Willigan. The show will open with an Artist’s Reception on Sunday, June 9 from 4-6p. Guests can meet the artist, enjoy locally sourced light Smithy fare, Spring Hill wine, and live jazz music with guitarist, Bentley Lewis. The reception is free and open to the community. This show will be on view through July 21.

The visual artist, muralist, blogger, dancer and photographer is deeply inspired by movement, balance, line and chance. Rowan creates free hanging works and murals and small batches of illustrated and hand-embroidered apparel. Alongside her visual art practice, Rowan co-directs the D’Amby Project, an Irish and contemporary dance company founded in 2012. At the project, she dances, choreographs and teaches classes to dancers of all ages. Rowan is also an art conservation technician, working at Monumenta Art Conservation and Finishing LLC based in the Hudson Valley.

The Loft Gallery is located on the second floor of The Smithy Store, a meticulously renovated barn that once housed the village Smithy shop. For more information, please contact Susan at (860) 868-9003 or visit View us on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter at thesmithystore.
