Acton and Beyond: Watercolors by Sue Nordhausen
March 1 - March 31, 2014
Sue Nordhausen, known to many in Acton because of her watercolor classes at the Acton Council on Aging, will exhibit her watercolors for the month of March in the library's Meeting Room.
Sue’s pictures are familiar to many in Acton through her calendar sales and her Studio Open House events. Nordhausen comes from a family of artists: her father was a painter and her mother a weaver. Her father was a founding member of the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society and art supervisor for the Town of Belmont. Nordhausen grew up attending exhibitions and Society functions. She earned her degree in art education from University of New Hampshire and she has taught art to all age levels. Although she has worked in many medium, she has always returned to watercolor.
She says of her work: “I never fail to be fascinated with the elusive and transparent quality of the medium [watercolor]. Especially the way the colors affect each other when mixed directly on the paper. I strive to follow the flow of the paint and interpret rather than copy a subject.”
Exhibitions are free and handicapped accessible. Exhibitions in the library meeting room are available for viewing whenever the library is open and the room is not in use for a meeting. Please check the library Events Calendar for availability.
