EPOCH Assisted Living at Melbourne will host an art opening for local artist Jo-Anne Irwin on Tuesday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. Irwin is a folk artist whose primary medium is acrylics on canvas and wood, but also uses watercolors and pen and ink. Her narrative work depicts simpler times in the Berkshires, inspired by her family’s stories about their early lives. Painting in an early American primitive style, Irwin depicts real and imagined scenes of rural life, antiques and local architecture.
All are welcome to attend this free art opening, meet the artist and view her work. Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP by calling 413-499-1992.
In addition to featuring Irwin’s work at the reception, EPOCH will display her artwork in their gallery throughout May. The public is welcome to view the artist’s work free of charge between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. EPOCH is located at 140 Melbourne Road.
