I will be joining four other New Hampshire artist this coming weekend for a two day art exhibit/sale in Peterborough, New Hampshire.  This event takes place at the Peterborough Historical Society on 19 Grove Street on Friday,  Dec 2nd,  from 3-8 pm and Saturday, Dec 3rd from 10 am - 5 pm. 

For some reason I cannot upload images of the paintings by these artists (no matter how small I make them) so please visit their website.

The other artist particpating are:  Frankie Brackley TolmanDeborah Lloyd Kaufman, Elaine Cummings and Rosemary Conroy.

Frankie is a Signature Member of the New England Watercolor Society and the RI Watercolor Society.  She is represented by Art3 Gallery, Mill Brook Gallery, and the Sharon Arts Juried Members’ Gallery.  Frankie teaches a very popular watercolor class at Sharon Art Center.

Elaine A Cummings from Peterborough, NH returns this year.  Elaine and I were fellow students in one of Frankie's watercolor classes at the Sharon Art Center.  Elaine works in watermedia and colorfully captures a joyful reaction to her surroundings.  She attended RISD and has worked as an illustrator and art teacher. 

Deborah Lloyd Kaufman works in acrylic in a  abstract expressionist style. Her vibrant paintings evolve through the process of layering to build rich complex areas of color. She has degrees from the University of Minnesota, Antioch-New England and studied at RISD.   She has taught art to children and college r many years, Deborah has taught at Keene State College and Antioch-New England. 

New this year to the show is Rosemary Conroy.  Rosemary colorful and contemporary acrylic paintings explore the beauty of the wild and mild creatures that share this planet with us.  Largely self-taught, she believes that passion for one's subject is vital.  And that passion has invited a strong following.  Rosemary is also a faculty member at Sharon Art Center. 

I feel honored to be in such company!  Last year proved to be a festive event.  We received such a warm welcome from an art loving audience.  If you are in the area do stop by. Friday night we will have a reception with treats and Cape Breton fiddle tunes provided by Harvey Tolman.
