Gari Melchers: Art at Belmont Estate
Took a nice little visit to the home and art studio of Gari Melcher the other week. His home and studio is a national historic landmark at Belmont in Falmouth and is 1 of 30 of America’s most significant artists’ spaces included in the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios consortium. It’s just on the “other side” of the Rappahannock River and not far from Chatham Manor where Peter sometimes works. It was their spring open house so it was free to get in and it was nice (but hot) to walk around on the grounds.
