Casey Winner of Kusmin Original Watercolor

Guild of Harwich Artists member, Paula Casey, was the winner of Andrew Kusmin’s Saturday raffle. Kusmin discussed his new book “Palette of Dreams” at the Guild’s April Monthly Meeting.

“Palette of Dreams” features more than 200 of Kusmin’s original paintings presented in nine “chapters” that reflect the various themes he says best define and catalog his work. Each chapter includes the artist’s insight into his journey to and through the theme, and many of the images also feature an inside look at the story behind the painting.

Whether the work depicts a chaotic street scene or a calming coastal vignette, an intimate look at a single blossom or a panoramic study of a family farm, a single vacant chair or a myriad of repeated images, Kusmin demonstrates his gift for capturing complicated and often intense stories in a single moment, always with a promise to unveil even more layers of the tale with each new look at the painting.

The Guild of Harwich Artists hold monthly meetings January through June, and in October and November, at the Harwich Community Center, 100 Oak Street, Harwich, MA. Each meeting features a well-known Cape artist demonstrator.

All programs are free and open to the public with light refreshments served.
