Silhouette Portraits, by Jean Comerford, Artist.
Curran Homestead Village at Fields Pond is taking reservations for sittings for handmade, heirloom silhouette portraits. Based in Hardwick, MA, Portraits in Silhouette is a mother/daughter business that has featured portraits of famous New Englanders in Yankee Magazine. Comerford is one of a handful of artists nationwide who continue the folk tradition popular in the US and Europe from the late 18th to mid-19th century. The portraits involve very sharp and precise cutting scissors which the artist uses to snip out a profile from black paper which is then mounted on white card. What seems most amazing to watch is that through her skill she achieves a likeness in minutes.
