It's also home to reknowned American Impressionist artist, Dawn Nolan Lombardi. Dawn is originally from Northampton, MA and now resides in Farmington with her family. Her work is featured in both private and public galleries around the country and, impressively, adorns the White House and Smithsonian Museum walls.
Imagine my delight when I was able to score two original works by Dawn at our recent elementary school fundraising event. I am beyond thrilled. This oil painting represents the New England quaintness of Farmington's Main Street.
The details are exquisite (hard to convey here).
The colors are vibrant and brilliant.
For Connecticut locals, I hear that Dawn's work will be displayed in the Farmington Starbucks in the very near future. Keep your eyes out, it's worth the iced latte to view these babies close up and in person.
Another example of Dawn's work:
