A Little Bit of Everything

December, 2013 to January, 2014

December will start a six week exhibit featuring Martha Bosco's oil and pastel paintings presented by the Friends of the Library on the main floor of the Amherst Town Library.  Martha is no stranger to the library as she worked as a librarian for nearly twenty seven years.  She also has been a long time resident of Amherst.  Many of the paintings Martha will be showing are landscapes and architectural landscapes with a few other subjects. 

Martha was painting while she still lived in Ridgefield, CT, where she was working with oil and watercolor.  Martha enjoyed exhibiting her early paintings in local juried shows before her move to New Hampshire.  Since retirement several years ago, Martha has taken the opportunity to return to her passion for painting after a thirty year hiatus.  

Recently, after experimenting with different mediums , I have  moved to pastels. I love working on a landscape, creating the lights and shadows of a rocky stream, a bright summer field or an interesting architectural scene. I truly am enjoying this renaissance of my interest in art and the exploration of new techniques.” 

Martha is currently studying the art of pastel with Randy Knowles in Manchester.  She participated recently in the "Inspiration of a Painting" at the library as well as at the Wild Salamander in Hollis, and E.W.Poore in Manchester.  Martha is a current a member of the Manchester Artist's Association.

The show will run from the beginning of December to the middle of January.  There will be an Artist Reception on December 15th, from 2-4pm, where you can meet and chat with Martha while viewing her exhibit on the main floor of the Amherst Town Library.  For further information you can contact Martha at marthabosco2@gmail.com.
