Old Spaces, Ancient Places: Scotland & Ireland at 6 Bridges Gallery
in Maynard, Massachusetts, through June 29

6 Bridges
Joyce McJilton Dwyer.

6 Bridges Gallery is now showing Old Spaces, Ancient Places: Scotland & Ireland through June 29, featuring the artwork of Joyce McJilton Dwyer. Dwyer's watercolor paintings and pencil and ink drawings depict the landscapes, waterscapes, and archaeological sites of Scotland and Northern Ireland. She imagines what the settlement of Skara Brae and other villages might have looked like thousands of years ago in their prime. "Much is unknown about these cultures of so long ago, but the beauty of what they left behind caught me up," Dwyer says. She also replicates the land and water, putting them back in time with her watercolors. Her works create a time capsule, taking the viewer back in time to a younger, simpler world. 6 Bridges Gallery is located at 77 Street in Maynard, Massachusetts, and is open Tuesday 11:00 a.m.3:00 p.m., WednesdayFriday 11:00 a.m.6:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m.5:00 p.m. For more information, visit 6bridges.gallery/old-spaces-ancient-places-scotland-ireland.

Harold Weston: Freedom in the Wilds at Shelburne Museum
in Shelburne, Vermont, through August 25

Harold Weston: Freedom in the Wilds is currently on view at Shelburne Museum through August 25. This exhibition showcases the paintings, diaries, letters and photographs of American 20th century painter Harold Weston. This exhibit is the first to demonstrate the links between Weston's writing and his painting, showing the viewer how they inspire and feed off each other. The show contains both his early work as well as 70 paintings from his later "Stone Series." According to Rebecca Foster, Weston's granddaughter, the man had a bright, adventurous spirit that showed not only in his work but also in how he made it. He had a bad leg, but instead of confining himself to a comfortable studio, he lived out in the middle of the woods in a cabin, chopping his own wood in the winter. He wanted to truly absorb and appreciate the nature surrounding him while fueling his thirst for adventure. These feelings come out in his colorful paintings and descriptive writing, and any nature-lover will see Weston's enthusiasm for the natural world in every brushstroke and word. Shelburne Museum is located at 6000 Shelburne Road in Shelburne, Vermont, and is open daily 10:00 a.m.5:00 p.m. For more information, please visit shelburnemuseum.org/harold-weston-freedom-in-the-wilds.

Dignity of Trees at Dedee Shattuck
in Westport, Massachusetts, through June 30

Dedee Shattuck
William Harting.

From now until June 30, Dedee Shattuck Gallery is showing Dignity of Trees, an exhibit about the reverence, mythology and beauty of trees. The show features the work of six artists: Greg Rose, Deborah Coolidge, Ana Flores, William Harting, Renee Monteiro-Bernard and Paul Rider. Each artist has their own style of art, and a different perspective on their subject as well as a different relationship. The types of media used include photography, sculpture, gouache and even temple rubbings of tree bark; and each artist uses their chosen medium to convey something different about trees. Greg Rose reveals their uniqueness, Renee Monteiro-Bernard their beauty. Deborah Coolidge and Paul Rider focus on form and structure, while Ana Flores and William Harting tap into spirituality and intimacy. Despite the differences among each artist and their work, they all work together to show the majesty of trees. They hope that the viewer, once they've seen the exhibit, will appreciate trees as much as they do. Dedee Shattuck Gallery is located at 1 Partners' Lane in Newport, Massachuetts, and is open WednesdaySaturday 10:00 a.m.5:00 p.m. and Sunday 12:005:00 p.m. For more information, please visit dedeeshattuckgallery.com/june-2019-exhibition.
