Duchess County Fair by Fred W. Hunt

They are some new arrivals in the gift shop. We want to make a gift shop more accessible for people who love art, sin obligation to spend more and accommodate the many tour buses that stop in front daily. The economy is down. The gallery is inviting independent artists to sell funky one of a kind objects d'art that has wide appeal.Fred Hunt completed his best work of art to-date ( The Duchess County Fair ) Sept. 17,2009

History of this painting. Fred attended the Duchess County Fair when he was creating in his Woodstock Studio two summers ago. At that time he did a 16 x 20 which had great reviews in N.Y. Due to the many subjects he felt it should really be a larger work of art and to develop the many characters. This painting is h34 x w40 and has the multiple personalities developed. Even as he was coming to the finish, he was heard to say "These people are popping up and want to be recognized, today I found two men with birds" and so he keeps painting. It is finished but from across the room he is still looking at this work and seeing that there might just be more characters. He does put his work aside for cooling period, to later revisit and see if anything more is needed.
Already on his easel is his next inspiration half done.
AnnaMaria was gone most of the day to meetings as she curates other venues.
"Il y a de nouvelles arrivées dans le Gift shop. Nous voulons rendre le gift shop plus accessible pour les gens qui aiment l'art, l'obligation de dépenser plus et de faciliter les nombreux bus de touriste devant notre porte tous les jours. L'économie a baissé et de ce fait la galerie invite des artistes indépendants à vendre de petit objet marrant.
Fred Hunt a accompli sa meilleure oeuvre d'art jusqu'au présent.
L'histoire de cette peinture. Fred a assisté à la Foire de Comté de Duchesse quand il travaillait dans son Studio à Woodstock il y a deux ans. Il a realisé un premier tableau de 16 x 20 pour une rétrospective a N.Y.
Il a estimé qu'en raison des nombreux sujets l'oeuvre devrait vraiment être une plus grande afin de développer les caractères. Cette nouvelle peinture fait 34 x 40 avec des personnages plus développés. Quand il pensait avoir fini son oeuvre, on l'a entendu dire "Ces gens apparaisse là haut et veulent plus d'attention, j'ai trouvé deux hommes avec des oiseaux aujourd'hui" et donc il continue à peindre, étant donné qu'ils veulent son attention.
Déjà sur son chevalet son inspiration suivante à demi faite."
