This detail shows not only the morning glories, but the dragonfly which I find so charming.
Although Marion has shown her work at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge before, public exhibits are rare. She is usually passed along from one client to another. It is the vitality and charm of the animals that are the usual subjects of her work that keep her in demand for custom work. Her last showing at the Museum a couple of years ago was a weather vane, a rabbit with a watering can amid the veggies. I was personally acquainted with the miniature dachshund who was immortalized in another weather vane, tail high and ears flying as he was in mid-romp. She can be reached by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This different rendition of a morning glory gate by Susan Carty Treat is just one of the other numerous garden gates on exhibit on the Norman Rockwell Museum grounds until October 13, Columbus Day weekend. Her gate made of steel conduit wire, wire mesh, wood and paint shows flowers at their fullest.
The Museum is a perfect destination for an autumnal weekend in the Berkshires.
