Rice Fields, photo by Jeanette Phillipps
Photographer and architect Jeanette Phillipps circumnavigated the globe a few years ago with her husband, on their schooner. Their sojourn in China marked the half-way point of their trip. The six images on display are of Guilin province, the site and source of many historic painted scrolls. Bamboo clumps, jutting rocks and hills, and terraced rice fields with curving canals have delighted viewers for centuries.
Tropical Dreams, by Linda Simmons-Arnold
Linda Simmons-Arnold’s three pastel and oil stick drawings are of places she remembered fondly and escaped to, artistically, during these past several weeks of bitter winter weather.
Summer Solstice, by Susan Beebe
Susan Beebe is exhibiting a wide oil painting titled “Summer Solstice.” She painted it outdoors during those few days of summer when the sun lit the north side of the Civil-War-era house on Friendship Long Island where she lived for many years.
Landscape with Clouds #6, by Harriet Matthews
Also on display will be welded steel and cast bronze sculptures by Harriett Matthews, based on architectural forms of her beloved Greece.
