John Gist

 All are accomplished artists with a history of many exhibitions and awards. Their paintings are meticulously observed plants, some from their own gardens.  

Carol Ashton-Hergenhan

To quote from Carol Ashton-Hergenhan: “I want the paintings to teach the viewer how to look and learn…”

During the exhibition, Ashton-Hergenhan will donate the proceeds of her sales to Pennswood.

The beautiful paintings in this exhibition encourage close and quiet contemplation. Their beauty is both in the subject observed and how it is produced by the eye and hand of each artist.

We are delighted to be welcoming outside visitors who are fully vaccinated. Please Note: All visitors should complete the COVID-19 Questionnaire Form on this website,
