Weston Gallery - Karen Davies

We would like to welcome Hampton resident Karen Davies this month as our Weston Gallery artist.  Karen has lived most of her life in New Hampshire except for 4 years on Martha's Vineyard, a time that kindled her first real love of painting.  She loves art history, and has toured museums all over the country, developing a real love for the styles of Winslow Homer, Norman Rockwell, Georgia O'Keefe, Picasso, and Edvard Munch, whose influence is strongly reflected in her own works.  Karen says with a smile that she is not so much self-taught as librarian-taught, as her favorite libraries have always provided the books and images that helped the pursuit of her artistic interests.
The library will host an informal reception for Karen on Tuesday, September 18th at 2:00 PM with light refreshments and a chance to talk to Karen about her work and favorite subjects on display, including New Hampshire people and places, the changing seasons, birds, and water views.
