Burlington City Arts

Charmaine Weatley

Charmaine Wheatley uses watercolors to depict everything from sunsets to eavesdropped conversations. Charmaine spent many days at the Converse Home, a retirement community in downtown Burlington, Vermont. She visually documented her interactions with residents, recording their personal histories, desires, and general states of being. She later assembled the drawings she made from these conversations into a small, mobile catalog.
