Books on the Pond is pleased to open its BoP gallery featuring the visual arts. Our mission is to provide homeowners with original work by working artists - self taught and/or trained - with previous gallery shows and/or exhibiting for the first time. At the end of our shows, many of the unsold pieces will be available for auction at very low reserves. 

This gallery-digital auction model will provide collectors and art lovers to decide for themselves the financial commitment - and chances - that they wish to take.

 

Located in our red barn three miles from the spectacular beaches of South County, Rhode Island, BoP announces the following shows:

Neil Rappaport: Photographs from Pawlet, Vermont.

On loan from the Griswold Family.

After their mother Minnie Griswold's passing in 1952, her sons Charles and Paul closed up their ancestral home in Rutland County, Vermont. It was undisturbed for thirty years.

It was then that Neil Rappaport (American photographer, 1942-1998) was granted access into Minnie's home. Discover how Rappaport  captured her treasures and way of life in stunning photographs that have been shown at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and recently at the Bennington Museum. Rappaport's work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA.

Local South County photographers Bill Morse and Joe Veriker's modern color photography framed in hard woods and on metal will serve as an excellent counterpoint.
