New England holds her attention with its dramatic light and varied panoramas from ocean, her first love, to mountains, her new home. She prefers plein aire painting to capture the light and ever changing moods of her subjects.


The exhibit is open during regular Madison Library hours in the downstairs John F. Chick Room through the month of March.

The library’s Chick Room has exhibit space for hanging artwork, and two-month-long art shows featuring local artists are planned throughout the year. Artists interested in exhibiting at the library are invited to review our Artistic Display Policy and Agreement, and contact us to arrange an exhibit time.

We’re looking for artists interested in displaying their work for two-month blocks starting in February 2015.
