September - October Art Show: Francois Lamothe
Please stop by the Ethel Weymouth Galley this September - October to view the work of pastel artist Francois Lamothe.
Lamothe is a self-taught artist who works primarily in pastels, though does
enjoy working with acrylics and oils as well. His
past exhibits include York County Libraries, the New Hampshire Conservation
Center in Concord, and Breaking New Grounds in Portsmouth. He is one of the
co-op artists at the Blue Grasshopper Shop in Commercial Alley in Portsmouth
which displays some originals, posters and postcards. His recent series
"Shopfronts of Portsmouth” has been very successful.
"Francois Lamothe paints en plein air whenever possible. This means the artist is on site with all the accoutrements of a classical painter, (easels, chairs, tables, brushes, solvents etc. ). Using either oils or acrylics on canvas, or pastels on Wallis paper, Francois enjoys being part of the entire artist experience; the interaction with the crowds, the sights and sounds of the environment.”
Artists in the community are encouraged to apply to exhibit their art in the gallery. Please contact the library for more information. 646-8181
