EXPLORE – An exhibit of paintings and drawings by Jacklyn Massari and Joan Handschumacher will be held during the month of March 2013, with an OPENING RECEPTION on March 7th from 5 to 7 PM
Ms. Massari’s latest work has been a series of egg tempera paintings. The Milford artist has been working most recently on Renaissance style portraits and icon paintings, after studying and working at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts in Paros, Greece, and Pistoia, Italy. She also has been concentrating on portraiture and the figure by experimenting with live models, using media such as charcoal, graphite, conte crayon, and ink.
Ms. Handschumacher paints the landscape and other subjects both in her Guilford studio and on location along the Connecticut shoreline, mostly in watercolor but also in gouache and pastels. She will show paintings, companion poems and photographs. Her work has been shown in a number of exhibits between Orange and Essex, including a solo show at The Davis Gallery in Orange in 2010.
Case Memorial Library, in Orange Center, opens at 10 AM Monday through Saturday; and closes on Monday and Thursday at 8 PM; Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5 PM; and Saturday at 4 PM.
