Jon Imber was my mentor and friend.  Several years ago I met Jon at a workshop he was teaching  through the Concord Art Association.  He invited me to come to Stonington, Maine, that summer and join his workshop of hand-picked students.  That week introduced me to a talented group of artists and now friends.  Since his untimely passing in 2014 due to ALS we all gather each summer in Stonington for a week of painting, sharing our work and honoring Jon. He had a huge influence on all of us.  And we all miss him.

This year his longtime student and dear friend John Arens has organized an exhibit of our paintings at the RiverSea Gallery in Dover, NH. This will be a first for us to show together.  Jon had wanted to have such an exhibit of his Stonington artists.  

The exhibit will run from April 22nd - June 10th, 2017.  The gallery is at Washington Street Mills, 1 Washington Street, Dover, NH 03820.  On Saturday, May 6th from 6-9 PM the artists will be present. Come join us - we are a lively group and each of us has a unique vision of Stonington and painting in general that Jon helped us see more clearly.
