February's Featured Artist - Alex Boyden

Alex's featured show, "The Heart of the Matter," will open on Wednesday, February 3. Typically a painter of landscapes, Alex took a different direction for the work in this month's show, which is inspired by artichokes and Alex's father. Come to the reception on Saturday, February 13, from 5 to 8 p.m. and discuss the show in person with Alex.

"Veggie Rose," Pastel

Alex studied art at L'Ecole de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris, Hamilton College in Clinton N.Y., and Haystack School of Arts and Crafts in Deer Isle, ME. She graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1991 with a BFA. She participated in Portland Open Studios in 2013, had work included in Street of Dreams and CAP Art Auction in 2014, and has been a member of Art On Broadway for two years.  

Her paintings seem simple at first, but they invite the viewer to take a longer look and discover the complexities within each piece. Stop by the gallery during February and look closely at these exciting paintings and drawings.
