“These paintings express my love for all living things, past and present, and finding peace in a world where your imagination knows no bounds.  I appreciate all things in nature, humbled by the design. I also admire Chinese brush painting, and the skill and artistry involved in that. My goal is to combine these two together in my own style.” — Artist Rick Lowe

The Natural World on Washi: The natural world as seen through a digital lens, printed on Japanese paper.

Inspired by the simple yet equally complex beauty found in plants, fruit, and landscape, Jeri Kim wanted to combine images captured on her phone or digital camera, with elements of something handmade. This exhibit shows works that have been printed on bamboo coated paper made in Japan, designed specifically for digital and alternative photography.

Faith in the Journey: Balance/imbalance in the organic world by Rozsi Adean Moser

"Sometimes, we have no idea of where we’re going but we take the first step anyway, we throw caution to the wind, and we trust in the journey. The prints and paintings in this exhibit were created with the intention of not knowing what their final images would be, of taking chances, of creating tension and resolution by breaking down and using the materials in their purest forms. And to remind us of the organic nature of the world and that we all have a place in it."

Local artist and art teacher Sue Funk's exhibit showcases her pen and ink drawings (with a few colorful pieces mixed in...)

"In my art I create the kind of world I wish to witness.
I create a world of order, peace & sanity as I revisit old memories & create calmer scenarios.
My ability to realistically capture an image has always been
a form of cleansing therapy.....
If a viewer gains insight & a moment of peace
& can feel that they have escaped our shared image of this world,
then my creation is that much more complete."

After Dark by Kathryn Costello

Kathryn Costello is a portrait artist specializing in head shots, magazine-style portraiture and dance photography. This exhibit of her night photography—stars and dancers (most of whom were photographed outside after dark) uses time to illustrate what cannot be seen with the naked eye.  Whether it is freezing motion at 1/5000 of a second or a three-hour exposure to burn onto film the motion of the night sky, Kathryn captures the fleeting and the eternal.

"Land and Sea" by Annelie Connolly

Land and Sea: Capturing Extraordinary Views of Farms and Coastline

Local photographer Annelie Connolly loves to capture simple and “ordinary” images that evoke warm and pleasant memories or emotions, like sheep grazing on a foggy quiet morning, or late afternoon sun hitting a wooden boat tied up by the dock.  Her “Land and Sea” exhibit displays a sampling of her passion for countryside charm and coastal beauty. Annelie hopes that these “ordinary” images will call to mind “extraordinary” evening walks along the harbor or family rides to the country.  
 
Born and raised in Sweden, Annelie has long had a passion for capturing nature’s beauty in photographs. Now a US citizen and resident of Stow, and a married, mother of two boys and a Boston Terrier, she has found a passion in capturing the beauty around New England.

My subject matter varies, but my enthusiasm for color is boundless. The endless variety and surprise of color is how I incorporate emotion in my artwork.  My main influence is Fauvism, with its wild exuberance of color.  I revel in natural beauty.  When the weather permits, I am out painting landscapes en plein air.  The beauty of nature buoys my inherent optimism. While I derive great joy in painting traditional subjects, I love exploring free expression through abstraction.  As I utilize different techniques, I try to let my intuition be my guide.  The composition tell me where it needs to go.  By letting go of preconceived ideas, I find my own style and iconography.
