Celebrate Art in August at our Artist's Reception

Join us from 6-8pm on Thursday August 8th!

We are delighted to be once again sponsoring Winchester's Art in August, a celebration of our vibrant local art community.  Throughout August local businesses open their doors (and windows!) to display artwork, and residents are encouraged to spend time viewing the exhibits.  Sponsoring businesses also host receptions where everyone gets a chance to meet with the artists and admire their work up close.

Waterfield Sotheby’s International Realty will be hosting a reception on the evening of August 8th, to showcase the work of our partner artists Denise Konicek, Kiyomi Yatsuhashi and Betty Stone. Please join us from 6pm – 8pm at our office at 48 Mt Vernon Street, Winchester – all are welcome.  Light refreshments will be served.

About the artists.

Denise Konicek is a quilt artist, whose designs combine creativity and color with precision and intricacy to create stunning artwork that tells a story.


Kiyomi Yatsuhashi’s hand-dyed textiles use traditional Japanese dyeing techniques in shades of her favorite indigo blue to evoke elements of nature such as the sky and the seas.


Betty Stone is a photographer and will be joining our reception to exhibit her most recent work, exploring the history, details and current usage of the 1913 Town Hall in Arlington.

    Art in August - Grand Opening Reception



    Art in August is celebrating its 20th successful year in Winchester!  Each summer the Winchester Cultural Council pairs local businesses with artists to turn the downtown area into an arts colony.  Painters, photographers, potters, fabric artists, jewelry-makers and other artists all get the opportunity to display their works, and businesses get the chance to support their community.  Residents are invited to spend time viewing the exhibits throughout the month, and have a chance to meet the artists at a series of receptions hosted by businesses.

    We are delighted to be a sponsor once again this year, and to be hosting exhibits from two artists who specialize in textiles.  Denise Konicek is a quilt artist, and Kiyomi Yatsuhashi creates hand-dyed textiles.  Please come and view their spectacular creations at our office (48 Mt Vernon St, Suite One) any time during August.

    Art in August will begin with a Grand Opening Reception at the Griffin Museum of Photography on August 1st, from 7pm – 8:30pm.  Wine and light refreshments will be served.  This event is open to the public and is a great opportunity to meet the artists as well as the sponsors and organizers of the event.

    We will also be hosting our own reception on Thursday, August 8th (6pm – 8pm) where you will once again have the opportunity to talk to the artists in a more intimate setting.  Check back for further details on this and to find out about Art in the Park, a family-friendly event on Winchester Common on Saturday, August 17th.

    Art in August is sponsored by the Winchester Cultural Council and the Winchester Artists Network (WAN).  All events are free of charge to the public.  For more information go to
