Friday, January 10, 2014

MANCHESTER – East Colony Fine Art presents the paintings of Joan Tierney and Betty Glass during the month of January with their new show titled “New Hampshire Inspirations”.

Tierney and Glass have been best friends for 10 years. They paint mountain vistas, rural scenes and woodland streams. Sometimes, they paint together.

“I grew up in Peterborough New Hampshire looking at Mount Monadnock every day. I’ve always thought New Hampshire is a beautiful and inspirational area,” Tierney said. “My style of painting is naturally realistic . . . I paint with a love for the all the natural beauty surrounding me.”

“I tell my students, ‘We should always paint what we love.’ I have been living in New Hampshire for 15 years and I am still in awe of the wondrous beauty all around me,” Glass said. “My style of painting is called ‘impressionistic realism.’ I love to drive the backroads of New Hampshire and feel renewed and inspired by the wonderful scenery.”

An opening reception will be held Saturday, Jan. 11, from 3-6 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

The exhibit runs through Saturday, Jan. 25. All gallery events are free and open to the public and there is plenty of parking.
