523 Ridgewood Rd., Maplewood, NJ 07040

The Durand-Hedden House presents "Sunday in the Park with Asher", a plein air painting event on Sunday October 2nd (rain day the following Sunday Oct. 9th).
Enjoy this special one-day community event as four landscape painters, including ARC Living Artist Gayle Madeira, gather at Durand-Hedden’s idyllic Grasmere Park for a day of painting in this unique natural setting. Watch the artists at work and learn about technique, choice of vantage point, composition, and palette. An exhibit of works by these artists will be displayed inside Durand-Hedden House, which also houses several paintings by Durand, former Maplewood resident and famed Hudson River School artist. The Durand-Hedden House, Maplewood’s historic house museum, is at 523 Ridgewood Rd. Visit www.durandhedden.org for details.

The artists will be painting on the grounds from 1-4pm and each will give a 20 minute demo at various points. Gayle Madeira's demo will be from 2-2:20pm. There will be an artist's wine & cheese reception from 4-5pm.

Additionally, the indoor landscape exhibition will be on display from October 1 - November 6th and will be a featured stop on the Maplewood/South Orange Art Studio Tour on Saturday November 5th and Sunday November 6th from 11-5pm.
