The Fall 2018 Show includes:
Maurie Harrington - Plein air watercolor painting is Maurie's passion, especially her favorite subjects, House Portraits, Landscapes, Snow Scenes, Barns and Buildings, and Florals.
Maurie’s deep-seated love of nature captures that beauty with her special artist’s touch. Her studio is located in Killington Vermont, and she exhibits widely throughout New England. http://www.maurieharrington.com/
Upper Valley Ship Modelers Guild - The UVSMG is a guild of ship model enthusiasts in the Upper Valley. Their mission is to “bring together persons interested in the hobby and avocation of researching, building and using ship models.” UVSMG values the exchange of ideas, education and growing public awareness to the joys the craft.
Lone Mountain Artists Group Show - LMA was established in 2007 by a small group of artist for the purpose of exchanging creative ideas and techniques and providing artistic support for one another. This group of unique established artists work in a variety of media and have exhibited throughout New England. https://lonemountainartists.com/
Alison Vernon - Alison started painting after the birth of her three children. Over the years, her painting style and technique have evolved. She quickly learned to appreciate the texture and richness of painting with palette knives. Alison’s use of knives in combination with her vibrant colors and fresh subject matter has made Alison a favorite of private as well as corporate collectors. She discovered the joy of painting pet portraits later in her career. http://www.alisonvernon.com/
Youngsheen Ahn Jhe - Describing her process Youngsheen states, "Narrative figure painting is the main focus of my work. I have an insatiable desire to depict the unfiltered story of everyday-humans. The
world is brimming with a vast spectrum of stories, stories from mundane
tasks to metaphysical relationships between the Designer and the designed. In
the depiction of the latter, I always expose a certain warmth and hope beneath
the everyday human stories." http://www.youngsheen.com/
Norman Rhodes - Raised in Strafford, VT, Mr. Rhodes has been a Lebanon, NH resident since 1972. His love of Upper Valley landscapes has been the inspiration for his work of predominantly local landscapes infused with wildlife or an occasional lingering person. Using oils, watercolor, pastels, and acrylics he is forever evolving his color schemes and compositions. Mr. Rhodes has been commissioned to do large murals of historic nature for town halls and private institutions.
Robert Weis - Over the past 50 plus years, Robert's personal artwork has continually evolved as he explored the places in which has lived through the dynamics of visual form. His current work draws upon the experience of “place” and reflections upon the human experience. To borrow a line from W.H. Auden “…to discover what it is to be human now, is the reason we follow this star…” He joined the faculty of Green Mountain College in 1989 and worked there until retiring from full time teaching in 2010. http://www.otherweis.com/
Nan Darham - Nan's artwork and stories chronicle the culture, landscape, wildlife and characters that populate her life in the West. Her narrative drawings and paintings have been exhibited in many galleries and museums and are held in private collections including the Federal Reserve Bank, Minneapolis. Her work was on display in the Washington, D.C. offices of Senator Max Baucus for over ten years and published in the New York Times.
