Winter Wanderings by Sarah Rawson Fris

cardinals by sarah rawson fris

This December and January we welcome an exhibit by ink and watercolor illustrator Sarah Rawson Fris. Sarah finds painting to be a playful, experimental process that can often become meditative and reflective under the right circumstances. This parallels the way she feels about New England winters. A delightfully crisp time of year that often compels one to take a brisk walk along the shore or through the snowy woods before retreating to the cozy peacefulness of home for warmth and quiet reflection (or, more recently, hot chocolate and a fort making session with her toddler.)

Come wander through whimsical landscapes of cut paper, salty watercolor skies and twisty trees. You may even meet some enchanting creatures on your journey!

Sarah is a member of Local Colors Artists’ Cooperative in downtown Gloucester where more of her original artwork can be found along with her whimsical line of clothing for all ages. She is the illustrator of the Pumpkintown children’s book series, which can be found at turtlehillbooks.com. Learn more about Sarah at sarahrawsonfris.com.

December Exhibit: On the Right Track
Reception: Thursday, December 8 from 6-8:30 PM

This month we welcome an exhibit from a group of women who have been meeting together for nearly ten years to paint. They work in a variety of mediums and styles with the shared goal of encouraging each other to find their own voices and have the courage to make mistakes and try something new. Every effort can be a step forward and a way to stay “on the right track”.
