Throughout October, the Exeter Public Library will exhibit the oil paintings of local artist Michele Fennell. “What I especially like to create in my paintings is a place for the viewer to go – a sort of personal adventure. All of my art is based on real places but, like the real place, my art does not give up all of its mysteries.” The majority of her artwork on display will be landscapes.
Michele does not subscribe to a pre-established palette of colors, rather she integrates natural colors of the scene with colors that will enhance and unify the painting. It is the old tradition of chiaroscuro painting in which her style and approach is grounded. Through light and especially atmosphere she establishes a relationship between the scene and the viewer.
To view Michele Fennell’s show, visit the Adult Services Section of the library. The library is located in scenic downtown Exeter at 4 Chestnut Street. For additional information, call 772-3101.
