    “Local Color” by artists Kitty Kerner and Rachel O'Meara.

    Both artists hail from Stratford, NH, and their joint show includes art work in a range of media: Rachel O’Meara is an oil painter and printmaker, Kitty Kerner is a photographer. Although they utilize different media, they share a love of local landscape and nature.

    Rachel grew up in rural New England, left for a few years, then returned. Primarily self-taught, she has been engaged with art-making for over thirty five years. She enjoys plein air oil painting, and woodcut/linocut print making, but has been known to dabble in watercolor and always has pencil and paper at the ready. A quote from George Gershwin guides her work: “Melodic. Nothing Neutral. Utter simplicity. Directness.”

    Kitty grew up in New England and Germany and has lived in both countries for extensive periods. She’s had a knack for photography from an early age, as both her father and grandfather where avid photographers. She likes to focus on landscapes as well as taking shots from odd angles that give viewers fresh perspectives. Close-ups and all things natural, especially plants, also feature strongly in her work.

    Their works can be seen at the Tillotson Center from Aug 5 through August 31.

    Admission to the Gallery is free.

    Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart star in this glorious revival of Harold Pinter’s classic comedy, filmed live on stage from the West End in London.


    One summer's evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.

    Admission $5 Adults/$3 Students & Members

    An exploration of Pompeii, a city cloaked in mystery and depicted through images and words by the great artists and writers who experienced and imagined it over the course of history: from Pliny the Younger to Picasso, from Emily Dickinson to Jean Cocteau.  Famously known for the catastrophic volcanic eruption which buried Pompeii along with its inhabitants over 2000 years ago, Pompeii: Sin City hosted by Isabella Rossellini offers audiences an extraordinary snapshot of Roman life, frozen at the moment of burial, showing how its citizens lived their lives, spent their free time, experienced pleasure, passion, religion and ultimately, their fate.

    Admission:  $8 Adults / Tillotson Members & Students $4.

    Florence in the era of the powerhouse Italian statesman, politician and patron Lorenzo de' Medici, was the heart of Renaissance art and culture. One artist, above all others, was able to evoke the lights and shadows of this unforgettable era: Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510). Through Botticelli: Florence and the Medici, we re-live Florence and all its art workshops through Botticelli's life, his collaborations, his challenges and successes. From the outset of Botticelli's career under the wing of the Medici family, he established himself as the inventor of an ideal beauty, seen in works such as The Allegory of Spring and the Birth of Venus. The death of Lorenzo de Medici marked the downward spiral of the Florentine master, who was destined to be forgotten for over three centuries, but the rediscovery of Botticelli by the Pre-Raphaelites reignited a genuine fascination with the artist and sparked a Botticelli-mania which continues to this day.

    Admission:  $8 Adults / Tillotson Members & Students $4.
