Artwork by: Wayne Trimm
Mount McGregor once boasted an art gallery. Grant
Cottage caretaker Martha Clarke was an amateur artist. Professional
artists painted images of Grant Cottage and of the mountain itself. For
years before and after General Grant's stay there, ordinary citizens
flocked to Mount McGregor simply to enjoy its natural beauty.
To commemorate Mount McGregor's art history and
natural history, a collection of wildlife paintings by Wayne Trimm will
be displayed on the Grant Cottage porch the weekend of August 16th. & 17th.
Mr. Trimm was trained in science and in art. For 30
years he was art editor of New York's award-winning Conservationist
Magazine. His paintings of our region's birds, animals and plants are
not only scientifically accurate, they are things of great beauty. August 16th. will be Mr. Trimm's 92nd. birthday. Meet and greet the artist ( and wish him a happy birthday! ) between 1 & 2PM on the 16th.
