Featured Artist for March and April
The featured artist for March and April is Margaret Dries of North Conway. Margaret has been creating art as long as she can remember. Raised in Wisconsin, she studied fine art at the University of Wisconsin, exploring figure drawing, 2 and 3-dimensional art, illustration and graphic design. She lived in Chicago before moving to New Hampshire and opening Sunset Hill Studio, a design and art business in North Conway. She is recognized for the bold colors, shapes and brushstrokes that play out on her canvas as the piece takes on a life of its own. Colorful paintings speak to the viewer and allow for individual interpretation as it fits the viewers experience. Part of the intrigue of abstract art is the ability to draw in the viewer and let them explore the painting. Margaret has pieces in private collections and has exhibited in the Mount Washington Valley with both the MWV Arts Association, Art in the Park and Ellis River Gallery in Jackson.This exhibit will be at the library through April, so be sure to stop by!
