“Light Stillness Beauty” Exhibition of the Art of Leslie Kuenne
January 29 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until February 6, 2020
The D&R Greenway Olivia Rainbow Gallery’s newest exhibition features the nature art of the late Leslie Vought Kuenne through February 6. The art space is maintained in perpetuity, honoring Leslie and Chris Kuenne’s late daughter, Olivia Michelle. Her mother’s exhibit, “Light, Stillness & Beauty”, –named by co-curator, Lisa Granozio–, evokes the stunning variety of this array of unexpected nature subjects. In life, Leslie Kuenne downplayed the power of her arresting paintings and photographs. The D&R Greenway Land Trust is deeply appreciative of Leslie’s husband, Christopher and their sons, Peter, William, and Matthew; as well as Leslie’s cherished sister, Victoria, for the privilege of remembering Leslie through displaying this sample of her wide-ranging work.
Leslie Kuenne was a generous public servant, multi-faceted friend, and diverse artist. She was a gifted chef and inventive gardener. Her husband, Christopher Kuenne, founder of Rosetta and Rosemark Capital, and author, is a Princeton University lecturer in entrepreneurship. Until shortly before her death, Leslie served as the president of McCarter Theatre Center’s board of trustees. Her sister, Victoria, with Chris and the boys, joined Leslie’s friend, Lisa Granozio, in choosing images for the memorial exhibition.
Leslie’s lively works will grace the Olivia Rainbow Gallery walls through February 6. A hefty Savoy cabbage contends with the intimacy of a softly burgeoning tulip. Her saucy rooster painting challenges a nearby portrait of a nearly exploding tulip. Leslie’s approaches to tulips in particular, could be said to be that of a deep-sea diver. A billow of antique lace holds its own above her challenging scene of hairy knees and reaching hands. Leslie’s close-up of local ice contends in both hue and line with her intense oil of a Vermont sunset.
