Paintings in Oil and Watercolor
On Exhibit January 12 – February 17, 2024
Tom Munschauer has a new avocation, but to call it a hobby would be understating the time and dedication he devotes to his art. The same attributes of focus and dedication made Dr. Munschauer the quiet healer to thousands of local pets in the Addison County area. He joined Middlebury Animal Hospital as a young veterinarian in 1986 and bought the business two years later. Never one to shine a spotlight on himself, Tom has also volunteered his spare time to local arts organizations like Middlebury’s Festival-on-the-Green and Town Hall Theater.
Now in retirement, Tom is making time to bring his artwork to the front burner. For decades he has created small paintings for family and friends in the form of Christmas cards. Now he is experimenting with larger format paintings in oil and watercolor. His strong sense of graphic design and composition are evident in his approach to painting. His imagery includes flora and fauna, landscapes, and anything that might spark his interest. The Jackson Gallery welcomes the opportunity to introduce Tom’s work to the community.The exhibit runs from January 12 until February 17 at the Jackson Gallery in the lower level of Town Hall Theater on Merchants Row in downtown Middlebury. All are invited to a reception for the artist on Friday, January 12 from 5 – 7 pm. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday noon to five, and when performances are taking place.
