Sunday in the Park with Asher

Published on September 29, 2022

The Durand-Hedden House presents "Sunday in the Park with Asher", a plein air painting event on Sunday October 2nd (rain day the following Sunday Oct. 9th).

Enjoy this special one-day community event as four landscape painters, including ARC Associate Living Master Gayle Madeira, gather at Durand-Hedden’s idyllic Grasmere Park for a day of painting in this unique natural setting. Watch the artists at work and learn about technique, choice of vantage point, composition, and palette. An exhibit of works by these artists will be displayed inside Durand-Hedden House, which also houses several paintings by Durand, former Maplewood resident and famed Hudson River School artist.

The artists will be painting on the grounds from 1-4pm and each will give a 20 minute demo at various points. Gayle Madeira's demo will be from 2-2:20pm. There will be an artist's wine & cheese reception from 4-5pm.

The Durand-Hedden House, Maplewood’s historic house museum, is at 523 Ridgewood Rd., Maplewood NJ.  Admission is free but donations are welcome.  Visit for details.
