Local artist donates Dow Homestead painting to Jewett City Savings Bank

Artist Marnie Reynolds-Bourque, a Sterling resident, recently donated an original painting of the Dow Homestead to Jewett City Savings Bank for display at its new Plainfield office.

Reynolds-Bourque’s artwork captures the essence of the Sterling family home of the late American journalist Charles Dow, founder of the Wall Street Journal, co-founder of Dow Jones & Company, and creator of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

“Marnie thought the Bank would be the perfect place to display her painting and pay tribute to the local resident who had such an impact on financial markets,“ said Kevin C. Merchant, president and CEO. “We truly appreciate this beautiful and inspiring gift.”

Merchant also thanked Sterling First Selectman Russell Gray for working with Reynolds-Bourque to arrange for the framing and presentation of the painting to the Bank.
