“THE MONUMENTS MEN: SAVING ART AND RESTORING HISTORY” 
GALLERY TALK ON APRIL 23, 2017
   Windmore and The Museum of Culpeper History partner to present, “The      Monuments Men: Saving Art and Restoring History” about artist Dorothy   Skelton and presented by speaker Fran Cecere. The public is invited to attend this free gallery talk; refreshments will be served. Seating is limited, call 540-829-1749 for reservations and information. The event takes place on Sunday, April 23 from 2 pm to 4 pm at The Museum of Culpeper History located at 113 S. Commerce Street, Culpeper, VA.

Culpeper artist Dorothy Skelton was one of the founders of Windmore. In 1948 and ’49 she was a civilian member of the Monuments, Museums, and Fine Arts (MMFA) project also known as the Monuments Men that returned millions of pieces of art that had been confiscated by the Germans during World War II.

Ms. Cecere learned about Dorothy Skelton’s participation in the Monuments   Men Project when she was the volunteer Executive Director for Windmore. She was contacted by a representative from Fort Bragg who wanted to confirm Skelton’s work with the Monuments, Museums, and Fine Arts project. Cecere spent many hours researching this information and was able to find documentation confirming Ms. Skelton’s involvement in the endeavor.

SEASONS ART EXHIBIT

AT CULPEPER MEDICAL CENTER JUNE – AUGUST

 

Windmore is partnering with Culpeper Medical Center for an art exhibit. Entitled Seasons, the exhibit takes us through a year of seasonal art. Spring and summer transcends from one end of the display. Fall, along with winter, meanders on a path completed by Norman Rockwell’s “season of giving” depiction. All the paintings are symbolic and take us through seasons of life that include reflection, rest, learning, growth, celebration, generosity, and even uncertainty with crossroads along the way.
“Plein Art Painter” by Millie Lane
Most of the pieces of art are by Northern Piedmont artist Millie Lane in whose honor Windmore offers a scholarship each year to graduating high school seniors majoring in the arts in college. The art was donated to Windmore by the Lane family. Millie, who passed away in 2010, was a prominent local multi-media artist who enjoyed creating with oils, watercolors, acrylics, inks, mixed media and collage. She was quoted as saying “I have been painting in various media all my life, learning and teaching as I go. I love plein air painting in watercolors the best so I can feel what I am painting.” Millie received many awards for her paintings and often exhibited her work in Fauquier and Culpeper County. She had a 40 year career as a nurse earning many awards for creative and innovative programs and a place in Who’s Who in American Nursing. Millie’s nursing career included working in both Fauquier and Culpeper Hospitals.
There are two pieces of art by internationally renowned artists. Midway through the Seasons exhibit is Charles Peterson’s “Days of Summer” which is a framed and signed limited edition print 765/2600. Also is a Norman Rockwell “Christmas” framed and autographed limited edition print 173/315. All of the sales of the Seasons art exhibit benefit either scholarships like Millie Lane’s Art or supporting Windmore’s mission of providing community arts. Culpeper Medical Center is located at 501 Sunset Lane, Culpeper, VA.

Beginning with traditional watercolor techniques using QoR Watercolor, we move into more contemporary ideas including using Golden products in journaling. This will include an assortment of applications such as: pouring, staining, granulation, blooms, splash, and “white-out” tricks for saving that uncooperative watercolor painting. We will then work with QoR Watercolors in combination with Golden Acrylics to explore the resoluability of watercolor and the permanence of acrylics. Finally, attendees will learn how to take advantage of Golden and QoR Grounds to create myriad surfaces for their work: from paper-like surfaces with the QoR Grounds, to utilizing unique substrates such as wood panels, fabrics, and plastics with Golden Grounds. Finally, we will cover the options of Archival Varnishing of watercolor surfaces, for preservation without using glass. Attendees will receive a selection of the products discussed to take home and explore the breadth and depth of Golden’s professional product line.

August 25 – 4 pm to 6 pm – Art Technique Demonstration for “Mixed Media” at Culpeper Baptist Church, 318 S West Street, Culpeper.*

Learn about the wide range of Golden Acrylic paints and mediums, as well as QoR Watercolor, giving you a good understanding of each product and their different attributes. Learn how to make the right choices in grounds and colors for the best intended application and for archival quality. Learn what to put under paint, and how to create washes, stains, and collage. We also cover the use of stencils, paint markers, pastels, and pencils, as well as the creation of encaustic-like effects, and how to use Iridescent and Interference colors to add unique qualities to your work. This is a great place for beginners and experienced artists alike to learn new techniques and be inspired by innovative applications. Attendees will receive a selection of the products discussed to take home and explore the breadth and depth of Golden’s professional product line.

Millie also enjoyed being outdoors, farming, horses and being at the beach which all influenced her choice of content for artwork.
