Slideluck Mixes Art And Community At Stonover Farm

Amy Krzanik reports from Lenox. Suky Werman, co-owner of Stonover Farm Bed and Breakfast and a board member of IS183 Art School of the Berkshires, curates an amazing benefit art show for the School in her Barn Gallery each summer. She boasts an impeccable eye for art, but isn’t one to rest on her laurels, and so kicked it up a notch for this year’s exhibit by adding a Slideluck event to the opening reception. Guests to the July 16th shindig enjoyed a community potluck upstairs in the barn, an art show downstairs and a slide show presentation viewed from blankets on the lawn once the sun set. Brooklyn Brewery and Souverain wine supplied the beverages. The exhibit, featuring the work of more than 20 artists, includes photography, paintings, ceramics and textiles. Read RI’s article about Slideluck and its creator, Casey Kelbaugh. Above, IS183 board chairman Andy Foster with former IS183 artist-in-residence Malik Sajad and executive director Hope Sullivan.
