For the MacEwens, artistic talent is like a family heirloom that gets handed down through the generations. That, in fact, is the title of an upcoming art exhibit by the MacEwen family — "Generations" — opening Oct. 5 and showcasing the work of the library's art chairman Ed MacEwen, along with his daughter, Bonnie, and granddaughter, Jesse.
"The exhibit is going to be a very strong, exciting show with a lot of visual variety," said Mr. MacEwen. "I am featuring 10 paintings of Monhegan Island, an artist colony off the coast of Maine. Bonnie is showing her work in a grid of 16 paintings." Jesse, who won second prize in the youth division of the 2011 Wilton Art Council's annual Focus photography show, will be exhibiting 20 of her photographs.
