Visions of Iceland Watercolors by Nan Rumpf
Nan Rumpf visited southern and western Iceland in September 2016. Since then she has been painting her impressions of this starkly beautiful land. Since she could hardly travel a mile along the coast without glimpsing an inland waterfall, she feels that the fluid medium of watercolor is perfect for capturing the wild spirit of Iceland.he Wellesley Society of Artists annual show of work from its Exhibiting Members features artwork from over 40 exhibiting members of the WSA, and includes works in oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel and mixed media.
Illuminated Poems Photographs by Jim Chandler
As a child, Jim spent many hours reading Life magazines from the 1930s, 40s and 50s that were bundled in his grandparents’ attic. Over time, he created intricate narratives for individual photographs. It seemed a simple progression to utilize a camera, take his own photographs and describe them. He later found that poetry came closest to his intention.
Storytime Crafts by Lisa Vergara
An exhibit of artist Lisa Vergara’s original, one-of-a-kind craft furniture
, inspired by her passion for children’s books and a desire to repurpose old chairs and other items. Says Vergara, “Through the use of shapes, colors, patterns and words, each piece comes to life.” These pieces encourage children (and adults!) to use their imagination to wander through the landscape of a story. Whether it takes them to Boston, the forest, a zoo or museum, young children can build on experiences and learn to express their emotions.
