Come celebrate "The Gift of Joye," a free art exhibit on July 27

Join the Historical Society on Sunday, July 27, from 1-4 p.m. at the Plymouth Historical Society, 572 Main Street in Plymouth, for "The Gift of Joye," a free exhibit of the artwork of Joye Zarick, an accomplished American Expressionist painter who hosted an artist's colony in the Todd Hollow section of Plymouth in the 1960s.

Area residents who have Joye's paintings are encouraged to contact the Society so we can display them at the exhibition. Also on display will be resident Tom Vaughn's collection of antique, locally made clocks dating to the early 1800s.

Poets, artists, and actors, such as the then aspiring thespian, Sam Shepherd, came to the little artist's enclave on Todd Hollow Road to create beautiful works of art.

Zarick graduated from the Chicago Art Institute and the Maryland Institute of Fine Arts. She also studied with renowned painter Jacques Maroger in Baltimore, Maryland, and in New York City for nine years.

According to Askart.com, Zarick was an abstract/symbolist figurative painter, who, with her husband, Alex, ran the Zarick Gallery in Farmington during the 1950s-'60s. Her work has been exhibited at Trinity College, the University of Hartford, the New Britain Museum of American Art, the Wadsworth Atheneum and Mattatuck College.
