THE FEATURED ARTIST FOR May and June is Lisa Breslow Thompson who does colorful food related paintings. Her work is scheduled for installation on April 29th and will be exhibited thru the end of June.
“After discovering that paintings of food and beverages elicit powerful and positive emotional responses in people, my most recent acrylic paintings focus on food-related themes. These series include desserts, candy, cocktails, sushi, soda bottles, and iconic foods and their packaging. When someone tells me that my painting makes his or her mouth water, or looks good enough to eat, then I feel successful!
As a graphic designer, I strive to create still life compositions that are tightly cropped and have a lot of dynamic tension. My pictures have a bold and graphic feel to them, and I especially enjoy experimenting with color relationships in my paintings.”

This Month's Exhibit

This fine arts fair will be held at Shaw Park, at the intersection of Rt. 16 and Union Street, on the first Sunday of every month through October. Last year’s effort was well appreciated by community and local artists alike. This year’s events will feature local artisans, fresh flowers, antiques, artisanal food items, and performing artists. It’s a family friendly event with many activities for children. Patrons can walk around, enjoy the falls, and get lunch. The admission donation benefits Bacon Free Library.
