"Nature Studies" – an exhibition by Pierette Romandi
Pierette said the following about her exhibition of new mixed media works on paper:
“This body of work is inspired by the beauty of nature and how plants, animals and fungi interact with human culture. Birdsong blends with music; fungi are scientifically fascinating and relate to botanical texts; and the sea shore is where our knowledge of the sea and its denizens begins.
By layering found materials with images, I've tried to give layered meaning: for instance, fly agaric mushrooms are rendered on vintage botanical textbook pages of the pine species which are their only symbiotic hosts. I hope to present more depth, through this layering, to reflect the amazing complexity of the natural world.”
Official Opening 6pm, Sat. 25th February 2017. All Welcome. Exhibition continues until 25th March 2017.
"Town to Country" – an exhibition by Lisa Mason
Lisa says: “I could easily have called this exhibition, "Weather". I love the impact it has on the scene around us. When deciding what I'd like see on canvas, I look for lines, balance contrasting tones and interest. This exhibition reflects the difference and beauty we see around us here in the New England. Enjoy!”
Official Opening 6pm, Sat. 25th February 2017. All Welcome.
Exhibition continues until 24rd March 2017
