On November 23, Tim Dutra became the proud owner of the iconic Ann Coleman print “Wilmington,Vermont: Autumn”. Dutra held the winning raffle ticket in a fundraising promotion for the Ann Coleman Gallery Rebirth Fund. The prize itself is actually a flood survivor. It was salvaged out of the muck left behind by Irene on the floor of the office of Coleman’s husband Joe Specht which was across the street from her newly renovated gallery that was washed away by Irene, along with all its contents.
Coleman’s building plans have been approved for rebuilding in Wilmington and her fundraising efforts continue.
Her work can currently be found locally in Wilmington at Bartleby’s Books second floor, Ratu’s Liquor Store, River Valley Market & www.AnnColemanGallery.com
