The Mayor's Gallery in Stamford Offers a Look at the Secret Rooms of Weir Farm
Much of the beauty of Weir Farm National Historic Site, located on the Wilton/Ridgefield town line, has never been seen by the general public. It's been continuously occupied by artists going all the way back to Julian Alden Weir, a founder of American Impressionism. In a new exhibit at the Mayor's Gallery in Stamford, New York artist Xiomaro (pronounced SEE-oh-MAH-ro) exhibits photos that offer a rare glimpse of the key historical structures at the farm and the details and textures that makes them so inspirational to the artistic residents that live there. The show is called Weir Was Here: Secret Rooms, Doors and Windows, and it's on display weekdays through the end of April.
