George Chen -Painter- July and August Displaying Artist
George Chen -Goldfish Painting














Painter George Chen, from Lowell, returns to the  Library with an exhibition of his extraordinary work. He uses oil paints on canvas to interpret traditional Chinese images. However, it is his non-traditional techniques that help bring his subjects to life. George’s work has been exhibited around the country and he has received many awards.  George Chen’s work is on display at the Library July 11 through August 14, 2015.

Come meet this affable artist at an Opening Reception on Saturday, July 11 from noon to 2 p.m.

Richard is a long time resident of Hampstead. He is a graduate of the University of Maine and the New Hampshire Institute of Art.

 

His particular areas of interest are Landscape and travel photography. Since 2009 he has been traveling and photographing in Europe. In 2014 he spent the summer in Greece with the New Hampshire Institute of Art where he photographed extensively.

 

His favorite place to photograph is Scotland where he finds the light to be spectacular. Even, as is often the case, if the weather is a "wee bit damp” at times. The Northwest Highlands has a special attraction. But the English Lakes District runs a very close second.

You can enjoy his work through the end of June in the Library's second floor meeting room, if a meeting is not in session. Greece doorway image
