CURRENT EXHIBITION

A Little Abstracted showcases abstract artwork that employs intense color, bold shapes and intriguing textures. Twiggs guest curator artist Marcia Santore invited three NH artists to join her for this exhibit: Kate Higley, Ethel Hills and Lotus Lien. Together, their art is hot and wild, full of mystery and movement.

UPCOMING EXHIBITION
ELEMENTS

MAY 20- JULY 1, 2017
Artist’s Reception: Thursday, MAY 25 from 5-7 pm

ELEMENTS references the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. These elementsinspire us with their beauty, brutality, and changeability.  They sustain us throughout our lives and eventually dissolve us after death.

Four NH artists have chosen to honor these four elements as the ultimate catalysts for their creativity. Russet Jennings connects with the Earth via her garden drawings. Ann Saunderson honors Air and a friend’s spirit with her ink on yupo paintings. Melissa Hinebauch manifests Fire with her hot, brilliant paintings and Sheryl Kamman’sphotography captures the grandeur of Water in nature.
