Audrey Carroll Prucnal works on display at the Marlborough CT Town Hall Gallery

The well-known and highly awarded watercolorist artist, Audrey Carroll Prucnal, is exhibiting some of her art works at the Marlborough CT Town Hall Gallery, at 26 North Main Street in Marlborough during the usual office hours of 8-4:30 Monday – Thursday and 8-12 noon on Fridays. Her works will be on display through September for all to view free of charge to the community and region. This exhibition is sponsored by the Marlborough Arts Center.

Audrey Carroll Prucnal has always loved to draw, color, and paint beginning as a child with a John Gnagy drawing kit and has evolved into a trained oil painting portrait artist who has turned into a water colorist. She has found that the medium of watercolor has been “liberating” as she turned to nature and its inherent beauties for her subject matter. She speaks poetically of capturing another passion of hers, fly fishing, along with the fish, rivers, and fishermen who share the earth’s bounties and which she is able to bring to her canvases.

These passions and her incandescent art has brought many awards as she is a member of many art associations including signature artist in the prestigious North East Watercolor Society and the Connecticut Watercolor Society. She is also a member of the Salmon Federation and has donated many of her paintings for fundraisers to save the Atlantic Salmon.

Marlborough is honored to have her as a resident and the Arts Center, at 231 North Main Street, is also honored to have her as an artist member where her art is always a part of local exhibits.

July 4th Friday @ the Arts Cafe

The Marlborough Arts Center’s popular “4th Friday @ the Arts Cafe” musical evenings for July features the acoustic duo Deep Ellum on Friday, July 27, starting at 7:30  p.m. in the beautiful art filled Charles W. Hall Art Gallery at 231 North Main Street, Marlborough, CT.

Deep Ellum’s experienced musicians, Rich Johnson and Jon Swift, have performed separately, and together, while appearing on radio and TV shows, with various bands, and in many Connecticut venues featuring acoustic music. They call their playing an “Americana” mix of blues, old jazz, folk music, bluegrass, and oldies and are known for putting their distinctive stamp on each song they perform. They play a variety of instruments including the dobro with its distinctive sound. If you haven’t heard the dobro, this is a wonderful opportunity to do so. Deep Ellum’s style is so open and relaxed that everyone in the audience comes to feel like this is an evening with friends, sharing delightful music, and the stories behind it.

Admission is $10 per person. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the music beginning at 7:30 p.m. BYOWine. Other refreshments are available. Come early and peruse the variety of paintings now on exhibit in the Art Gallery by member artists. All of the art is for sale.
