Expressions and Impressions
Come and join us for a beautiful and colorful solo exhibit by local artist Connie Mosher. Connie’s artwork catches impressions in a range of media including: oil painting, the Polaroid transfer technique, flower scanography, and mixed media. Artist quote: “My inspiration comes from anything that ‘catches my eye’- close to home or far away.”
Connie’s love affair with art began with drawing whimsical sketches and daydreaming as a child. Fast forward to college where she was a major in music. It was then that she took one art class and it re-opened her eyes to the possibility of becoming an artist. She switched her major to art, earned a degree at SUNY New Paltz and began teaching art in Upstate New York.
Art was put on hold for a bit when she married and raised a growing family in their 1820s brick farmhouse. Since then, Connie’s life has taken her many places – residing in Utah, England and California. As her children grew up, life once again settled amidst apple orchards surrounding the quaint brick farmhouse. Connie started taking art classes, collaborating with other artists, and pursuing her deep love of art once more. Drawing from her inspiration of life and travels, she was painting in oils and showing her artwork in several local venues.
Evolving over time, she began discovering new ways to interpret the world and create art. The Polaroid transfer technique captured her attention, and then flower scanography – using flowers from her own country gardens. What she loves about art is that one interesting experiment leads to another. She describes her art as striving to depict her experience of the world around her – to “express her impressions,” in a wide variety of media. Here is a quote that influences her from Franz Kafka, “Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
The Opening reception for this exhibit will be held on Friday, Sept. 8th from 7 pm – 9 pm and the artwork will remain on display until Sept 28.
You can view the exhibit Tuesdays through Saturdays from 12 pm to 5 pm by entering through the Lightways Community Shop at 31 Market Street.
We hope to see you there!
