Braintree painter Carolyn Egeli will exhibit her oil paintings this spring in the Governor’s Gallery. Her opulent show, “For the Love of Vermont,” celebrates the artist’s adopted state in the offices of Vermont’s governor from April 3rd until June 28.
Originally from Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay area, Egeli moved to Braintree in 2012. She, like so many other artists, fell in love with Vermont during a previous visit and simply chose to stay. She bought an old farm and has been painting ever since—creating works that beautifully convey the landscape, people, and farm animals for which Vermont is famous.
Of additional interest are the portraits she is including in the gallery: a state senator and a local logger. She says, “I painted the portraits of these two men after I moved to Vermont. They represent the broad interests and lifestyles of the people who contribute to Vermont’s communities, which is just one of the many reasons why I’m so grateful to be living here.”
