WRLF to hold artists' reception for Dreaming of Green Exhibit on Thursday September 30th from 6-8 p.m.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- The public is invited to Sheep Hill in Williamstown on Thursday September 30th from 6-8 PM to meet talented regional artists and view the "Dreaming of Green" art exhibit featuring the scenic late summer and fall landscape of the Berkshires, both panoramic and intimate, in oil, pastel, and photographs.

The farmhouse at Sheep Hill, the headquarters of the Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation, is well-suited to artwork. Leslie Reed-Evans, Executive Director, says, "the pieces augment the homey Sheep Hill atmosphere; it's almost like seeing artwork on the walls of someone's cozy living room."

The "Dreaming of Green" exhibit first opened in March at Gramercy Bistro's Mass MoCA location. Bringing the artwork back to Sheep Hill allows visitors to view the pieces in a different setting. There are also new pieces to replace ones that were sold during the Gramercy show.

The artists are donating proceeds from sales of their work to the WRLF for its land conservation program. We are very appreciative of the generosity of the artists involved in the exhibit" says Reed-Evans. "The northern Berkshires has an amazing number of talented artists. We hope people will come by to see the show and support both the artists and the WRLF."

Exhibit hours are Monday through Friday, 9AM - 5PM, through November. Sheep Hill is located on Route 7 (Cold Spring Road) approximately one mile south of the Williamstown Rotary. For more information call 458-2494 or email

The WRLF is a non-profit land member-supported land conservation trust dedicated to preserving the rural New England character of Williamstown and the surrounding area.
