Ray Brown: A Portrait of an Artist - A Film Screening and Talk

Thursday, July 18, 2019

Ray Brown, former co-founder and co-owner of Montpelier's Drawing Board, is a prolific artist who has lived in central Vermont for 38 years with his wife Jody. Born in Brookline, MA to a family with deep roots in Boston professional sports, Ray attended Mass College of Art and later Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. He taught art and coached hockey for many years at Massachusetts public schools. Ray Brown: Portrait of an Artist is a feature length documentary film by Ray & Jody's friend, Montpelier resident Nat Winthrop. It chronicles Ray's resilience in the face of adversity and multiple setbacks, including a nearly debilitating stroke in 2006 that forced Ray to teach himself to paint left-handed. The MSAC screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Ray Brown and filmmaker Nat Winthrop. Open to the public.
