The Merrimack River Painters
FINDING OUR VOICES
November 2nd - December 3rd
November 2nd 5pm - 7pm
An Inspirational exhibition about what it takes to be an artist. Twelve artists who have been painting and exhibiting together for fifteen years celebrate their growthas they navigate their family and community responsibilities to find their creative voices. This remarkable group of artist friends encourage each other to be true to themselves and pursue their unique creative expression.
The large exhibition - in the beautiful Kimball Jenkins Mansion and Carriage house- showcases the artists’ sense of themselves and includes a special wall of self portraits done just for the show. No longer burdened by youthful insecurities, these mature women see themselves as total individuals.. different from most of their contemporaries …heroically visual and distracted by their idiosyncratic relationship to reality..they don’t see themselves as normal…they see themselves as ARTISTS.
