Leslie Kuenne: A Life in Art
May 15 - June 19
The Arts Council of Princeton is honored to be exhibiting a collection of paintings, pen and ink drawings, and photography works by Leslie Vought Kuenne.
Leslie was a deeply dedicated member of the Princeton community and a gifted painter, sketch artist, gardener, and award-winning photographer. She studied painting and drawing at the Arts Council for many years and participated in several shows in our Taplin Gallery. Leslie took great comfort and solace in making art and the Arts Council was so fortunate to have her as a student, member, board member and friend.
The Arts Council will feature a selection of Leslie’s work produced over the years not only at the Arts Council, but outdoors in plein air, in her Princeton studio, and at her beloved summer home in Shelburne, Vermont. Join us to celebrate the incredibly inspiring and creative life of Leslie Kuenne as we honor her memory.
