Fabulous Forgeries is a recurring exhibition that asks local artists to reimagine famous works of art with their own spin. This year, we saw interpretations of works by Van Gogh, Picasso, Homer, Cezanne, Rembrandt, Gauguin, Warhol, Basquiat, Monet, Manet, O'Keefe, Escher, Hilma af Klint and many more. Artists were asked to recreate or reimagine masterworks in a different medium or size and add a modern twist. Some went subtle, some added humor, and others took off in a whole new dimension.

Opening night was standing room only with hundreds of visitors braving the cold for an evening of fine art, good conversation, and inspiration.
Winners of this juried exhibition were selected by renowned oil painter and teacher, Thomas Murphy.
