Jackee Foley is a 3rd generation resident of Brandon, Vermont. She has contributed much to the community with her talents. Since childhood friends and family called her “the little artist”. For several years Foley owned a frame shop in town where she offered fairly priced quality work, but had to put her own art on hold. In 2006 Foley resumed making art at her studio at The Granary, on Union St. in Brandon, where she works daily and diligently. Fellow artists find her to be amazing with her skillful productivity. Best known for her finely detailed paintings of animals and nature, her passion for her subject matter is evident.
On December 30th, 2014, a tragedy occurred when her family home, belongings and dear pets were lost in a five-alarm fire. The community reached out generously to help her. Thankfully 95% of her art and materials were in her studio at The Granary.
The Brandon Artists Guild, of which she is a founding member, will be hosting a solo show of Foley’s work, with 100% of the sales going to the artist. She is hoping to earn enough money to start constructing the foundation of her new home. This will represent a new beginning.
The show, “Jackee Foley: The Past and the Present” will be featured from April 30th to June 2nd, 2015. The show will be a retrospective of Foley’s work, with new work featuring the lovely buildings and architecture of Brandon. This is Foley’s way of honoring Brandon for the outreach the community has given her. This show offers another way to support Foley and own a lovely piece of her art.
