September/October – Janet and Ku-chuan Hsiao (Oil/Acrylic and Photography)

Join us for the “Birds and Blooms” exhibition featuring husband and wife team, Ku-chuan Hsiao and Janet Clingerman-Hsiao.

Ku-chuan Hsiao is a genetic engineer with advanced degrees in microbiology, human physiology and biophysics, specializing in drug discovery.  It was quite by accident that he began his journey into bird/small animal photography.  It all started when taking random reference photos of birds for his artist wife.  Since their home abuts a wildlife refuge in the forests of New England, a large variety of birds fly through according to the season, and occasionally other small animals appear.


As time progressed, Ku-chuan developed methods for photographing the birds in-flight so that the lovely fluid detail in the design of the wings could be seen. Some close-up shots even capture the different expressions of the birds’ “faces”, appearing as if each bird has its own personality. www.birdsnapshots.com  www.facebook.com/birdsnapshots

 

Since childhood Janet Clingerman-Hsiao has sketched and painted.  At the age of 12, she took oil painting classes at the local Moose Lodge, where she fell in love with painting. Graduating with a BA in art, Janet went on to work as a graphic designer in Chicago.  Some years later, she returned to painting and gardening. Intrigued by color and light in her flower gardens, she paints large 2’ x 3’ flowers as well as small 6” x 6” flowers.

 

“I focus on the lovely flowing edges, the delicate color and the inner beauty of the flower – bringing the flower to life.”

She has been juried into Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club’s Annual Juried Exhibitions in NYC, and several juried online National Oil and Acrylic Painter’s Society (NOAPS) shows.  www.janetclingermanhsiao.com, www.facebook.com/JanetClingermanHsiao.

December – Jim Curran (Digital Art)

In the gallery in December, all are welcome to join us for “Troubled Sleep” – a four year survey of digital mixed media by Jim Curran. This exhibit samples works from eight series whose focus ranges from an exploration of patterns in nature to the artist’s response to events of the last year. Images are built from layered paintings, drawings, monoprints and photographs assembled in CorelDraw and printed on paper or canvas. Many of them can be seen on the artist’s website at www.jimcurran.net.

Jim studied at the Art Institute of Boston and has exhibited in galleries, online and in publications. His most recent exhibit was a solo show at the Hanover Gallery through Arts Worcester. All artist proceeds from this exhibit will be donated to the International Institute of Lowell for refugee resettlement.

Meet the artist at his reception on Sunday, December 3rd from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.  Refreshments will be served.  FREE and Open to the Public! Other gallery hours are Sundays, December 10th and 17th from noon – 2 p.m. and by appointment. The exhibit runs December 3 – through December 29th.
