2021 Participating Open Studio
Catherine M. Elliott
Catherine is a contemporary painter whose work is evocative of the American Impressionism style of painting. Capturing the true grace and elegance of the remaining countryside of New England.
Grace moves freely to and from paint and clay. "Painting connects me with the real world as I bring special forms to the canvas. Clay allows me to think functional art that transcends into more expressive work."
Ruth is known for her pastel depictions of Portugal, prizewinning still life acrylics, and bold figure paintings.
Mike paints in oil. It can be pushed, prodded, streaked, and steered. But no matter what you do to it, it will remain true to your intent. I find it a fascinating medium with which to create.
Linda has fallen in love with pastels. Trying to draw the viewer into the painting using color, light, and composition to evoke a response as they reflect on what they see.
Julia Parker Post
Julia works in both watercolor and print making. Nature and flowers are the primary subjects and much work has been influenced by sketches from travels. The work is in a bright pallet in an impressionistic style.
Linda's artwork consists of paintings of mixed media colored pencil and alcohol wash and some collaborative woven framed pieces. The subject matter ranges from landscapes, harbors, beach scenes, and abstracts
Bill is a fine jeweler working with precious metals and gemstones.
