Upcoming Events and News

Unusual Wendell Art event not to be missed!

White Mountain Distant Storm
Sunday July 21st from 3-5pm at the Wendell Library
details below

Renowned Boston area mural and portrait painter, Warren Prosperi, in collaboration with his photographer wife, Lucia Prosperi, has painted two of Wendell’s own, Donna Horn and Chuck Hamel.

A large Prosperi mural hangs permanently in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and numerous commissioned works are at other major institutions. The Prosperis have also exhibited at the prestigious Vose Gallery in Boston, which rarely shows works by living artists. Be sure to check out their website: http://prosperistudio.com

There will be a two hour exhibit of five Prosperi paintings, including an unveiling at 3:30 of one of the Wendell portraits.

The back story

Prior to moving to Wendell, Chuck Hamel had served as a model for several of Warren Prosperi’s paintings. On subsequent visits with the Prosperis, Chuck’s description of Wendell and the Misfit Prom intrigued the couple. They made a visit to Wendell, met Donna, and asked if she would pose in one of her prom “outfits.”

Warren and Lucia work as a team with Lucia’s photographs of the subjects informing the mood and direction of the paintings. Both Warren and Lucia are quite pleased with Donna’s portrait and want to share it with the Wendell community.
 
It promises to be a fun Wendell gathering, a rare opportunity to view the Prosperi’s art right here in Wendell and to get to know the artists themselves.

We hope that you will join Donna, Chuck, Lucia, Warren, and Wendell friends and neighbors at this special event. No formal talk is planned, but both Warren and Lucia love to talk about art and any other subject that happens to come up.


The Wendell Warriors drumming group will be outside the Library at 2:30 - 3 to welcome everyone in.

Refreshments will be provided.

Both of these themes are well covered in literature and on screen (big and little). Traveling to new and interesting places is a common subject in Science Fiction, since the earliest Science Fiction literature. And monsters are common feature of Horror.
