RFPL hosts exhibit by Saxtons River Art Guild

BELLOWS FALLS—Members of the Saxtons River Art Guild will exhibit their work at the Rockingham Library from May 12 to July 29. Each artist will display four or more works in various styles, subject matter, and media.

John Dimick paints landscapes from various trails in New England and can be seen painting street scenes around Brattleboro on Gallery Walk nights. Kathy Greves paints a variety of subjects—some plein air and others from photographs she has taken in and around Vermont and during her travels in France, Italy, Germany, and the Bahamas. Longtime member Donna Lund paints regional landscapes in watercolor or pastel. Liz Winchester-Larson works primarily in the still-life genre with rich color and intricate detail.

Founded in 1976, the Saxtons River Art Guild is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to promote and encourage the advancement of the fine arts with about 80 members throughout the Monadnock Region of New Hampshire and the Southern Connecticut River Valley area of Vermont.

Their activities include exhibits and sales venues, classes and workshops, open studio time September through May, plein air gatherings June through August, luncheons with guest speakers, demonstrations, and trips to museums and galleries. An art scholarship is awarded yearly to a local, qualified high school senior who plans to attend a four-year program majoring in the arts.
