This month's art exhibit presents the work of the three Artists in Residence at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts. Each offers a unique perspective on the world using different techniques and informed by different backgrounds. Come and meet them on Saturday and learn more about their work and their lives.
Donna Berger: “Art has always been a driving force in my life, whether it’s creating for myself, work for print or publishing clients, and/or fine art commissions. My favorite subjects are people, pets, nature, and historical themes, which I paint in an expressive realistic style. Fortunately, I have a knack for capturing likenesses, a great skill for portraits. Besides using traditional media - acrylic, oil, watercolor, pencils and ink, I create digital art using creative software and a digitizing tablet.”
Rita Thompson: "I currently am creating abstract paintings, exploring the use of color, texture, and embedded material. I was educated at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Juried shows include: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Boston Summer Party, Her Art: A Celebration of (10) Women Artists in Boston, New England Regional, Frances N. Roddy Open competition, Concord Art Association, Arts League of Lowell, Brush Gallery Members Show, and Whistler Museum of Art."
Trina Teele: "My seascape paintings came about as my dad was dying. I wanted to remember all I could of my childhood and connect with his deep love for sailing before he was gone. As a child I spent summers on Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Long Island (NY) with my family. I didn’t share a passion for sailing with the men in my family, but I did have the privilege of falling in love with the sea in my own way. As an adult and an artist, I look at the beauty I’ve come to know of the ocean and my memories of sailing and try to connect the two."
