Art Exhibit Opening, Thursday January 24, 5:00pm, DHMC, Lebanon, NH

The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Arts Program invites you to our Winter Art Exhibit Opening!

Join us at 5:00pm at the DHMC Level 4 Lounge where we will be serving light refreshments.

At 5:30pm there will be remarks and brief introductions of the artists followed by a self-guided “Art Walk” to their exhibit galleries.

The Winter 2019 Show includes:

Put Blodgett, Woodworking: In his own words Put states “I have been wandering in the woods since my childhood on a Bradford, Vermont dairy farm.  In the many years since then, I have seen numerous examples of unusual wood.  After seeing beautiful objects created by woodturning, it struck me that exposing the beauty of the natural wood grain in a pleasing form could bring pleasure to the beholder. I try to achieve that.”

Sharla Broughton, Acrylic: A lifelong painter, Sharla started showing her work 10 years ago, and has become even more passionate and prolific since then. She has studied with Adron Duckworth and Swedish painter Thor Carlson.

Liz Hawkes deNiord, Acrylic and metallic paint on canvas or panel: Living in Westminster, Vermont, Liz describes her process and philosophy in her own words: “This collection of paintings displays pieces layered with colors that create an iridescent quality; they are ‘excavated’ and peeled back to reveal radiant emanations.  What lies beneath each one (the pentimento) is essential to what one sees on the surface.”

Bruce Parsons, Photography: Bruce is an award-winning photographer focusing on dramatic landscapes and the ever-changing weather of the natural world. At a fairly young age, Bruce bartered roof snow shoveling for painting lessons with well-known painter John W. ‘Babe’ Sargent in Georges Mills, NH. Bruce likes to photograph in unique light situations like low light, storms, early morning and twilight/evening. About ten years ago he published “Star Light” a collection of  his photographs from Star Island.

Neysa Russo, Wool Felt Tapestry: Neysa resides in Corinth, Vermont where she combines the techniques of wet felting and needle felting to create museum-quality tapestries of exquisite beauty and charm. Fascinated by the rich history of design and inspired by ancient textiles from around the world, her expertise comes to life with creative design composition and dramatic use of color.

Alan Zola Shulman, Acrylic: Despite picking a career in Architecture, Alan found mentors for his artwork at Illinois Institute of Technology in Nelli Bar and Paul Wieghardt, refugees from the Bauhaus. Later, in architectural practice, I still found time for painting and inspiration in the workshops of Peter London (No More Secondhand Art) and with Canadian painter Seymour Segal at his Quebec atelier.

Gale Sweet, Pastel: After retirement Gale wished to turn her creative mind in a new direction. She found the sketching and painting involved in pastel painting as the best way to satisfy her artistic urges. She states, “I love how blending colors on sanded paper can create realistic looking pieces. In my work, I look for subjects that are fresh and different from previous
works. “I enjoy deviating from shadows in still life to seasonal New England landscapes.”

Bill Turner, Oil: Bill is a professional realist oil painter. After he retired from a 30-year career in automotive restoration he decided to pursue a lifelong dream and devoted himself entirely to drawing and painting. Over the years he has earned both BFA and MFA degrees in Visual Arts-Painting which would have been almost impossible as a youth because of his dyslexia. His intimate knowledge and love of machinery have been so much a part of his life that he chose to paint distressed vehicles and machinery to tell a story.
