New London, N.H. — “A Visual Journey,” a collection of oil and pastel paintings by Sunapee artist Susan Parmenter, will be on display at the Center for the Arts micro gallery at the New London Inn, 353 Main Street, New London, from February 7 through April 26, 2014.
Meet the artist at an opening reception on Friday, February 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
CFA’s “gallery night” will also introduce new art at their micro galleries at Country Houses Real Estate, 370 Main Street, and Zero Celsius Wealth Studio, 228 Main Street. Meet photographer Maureen Rosen at Country Houses and artist John Sirois at Zero Celsius.
A journey of expression
“Painting and drawing take me on a journey of expression that I cannot achieve with words,” says Parmenter. “I create art to share my immediate experience with the viewer, not just the color, light and composition, but the mood, feeling and emotion.”
The show will encompass a decade of Parmenter’s work, from 2004 to present day. Ten years ago, Parmenter re-focused her art career from illustration to fine art painting. The show will reflect her artistic journey, a “journey of expression.”
The exhibition will include both realistic and impressionistic styles of painting. and feature a variety of her favorite subjects—landscapes, portrait and figure, animals, and still life.
The Center for the Arts is based in New London and supports and celebrates the cultural richness in the Lake Sunapee Region. Of the many arts it supports, the visual arts are foremost on its agenda and featured at its micro galleries, a summer art show, “Arts On The Green” in July, and a juried regional show in November.
CFA’s micro galleries host rotating shows year round. Openings for these exhibits occur on the first Friday of February, May, August and November.
