Abstract Art is Lighting Up Our Showroom
The walls of Stonehurst have been graced by the colorful abstract art of local painter, Joe Norris. Joe is a Vermont-based artist whose paintings reside in galleries & private homes throughout New England and around the world. We love seeing his vibrant paintings as the backdrop for our Vermont made furniture. They're the perfect modern yin to our traditional yang.
Opposites are Attractive
These works of modern art pair beautifully with the simple elegance of Shaker and mission style furniture, don't you think? Above we staged a number of plain-jane, solid cherry dining pieces against Joe's flamboyant Abstract Landscape #3 and Untitled #3. Now we can play off the paintings to layer in additional color with flowers, table linens and seasonal decorations.
“Balancing the line between representational and abstraction is where I feel most comfortable in my art making. I like to imply a sense of depth and space, where I compose and color with a push-pull energy. Using quick and energetic markings initially helps me launch the start of a painting into a well designed composition.” Joe Norris
Original Art Work That's Affordable
Often times, original art seems out of reach but for a limited time, Joe is offering the 15 paintings we're displaying at Stonehurst at surprisingly affordable prices. Most are in the $300-$500 range with the larger, more complex pieces ranging from $700-$1200. This is a great opportunity to add to your collection without breaking the bank.

Joe uses mixed media and vivid colors to give his paintings depth & texture.
I love the vivid colors in this "Crossword" painting. They set the stage for adding all kinds of fun fabrics, pillows, throws or place settings.
The first painting on the left is Georgie Runkle's. Left of that are Joe Norris' Abstract Landscape and untitled abstracts.
