Art Opening Reception: Deborah Hanson Greene

Date: 04/07/2024
Time: 4:00 pm-6:00 pm

The Norfolk Library’s featured artist for the month of April is Berkshire native Deborah Hanson Greene, with a new exhibition, “Pastoral Landscapes and Still Lifes,” presenting more than 20 watercolors of rural farm scenes, large florals, and other still lifes.

A graduate of Vassar College, Greene left the East Coast to work in the Midwest, and later the Baltimore-Washington region. She returned to the Berkshires in 2007, and, after working as Norman Rockwell Museum’s Director of Institutional Giving for 12 years, left to pursue painting and other interests. 

Greene has exhibited at the New Marlboro Art Association Gallery, Berkshire Food CoOp, Marketplace Cafe, The Sheffield Collection (a former design shop), Real Gustavian (a former design shop), Gallery on Main (a former pop-up gallery at Barnbrook Realty/Great Barrington), Pulse Dance Studios, Great Barrington’s Mason Library, and the Stockbridge Library. 

Previously, she exhibited at The Torpedo Factory (Alexandria, VA), Maryland Art League (Annapolis, MD), Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, and in various galleries and coffeehouses in Annapolis and Baltimore.

Drawn to the pastoral landscapes, changing seasons, and northern skies that once inspired her as a child, Greene loves her Berkshire life, which she shares with her partner David and three cats in a 150-year-old farmhouse. 

Please join us for a reception for the artist on Sunday, April 7, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., graciously hosted by the Library Associates. Thank you for your support!
