Thank you for another great year on the "tour". Betty Bryden
and Tom Canouse will both be showing at The Butternut and look
forward to seeing you with new work.
Bryden will be showing new watercolor paintings and
collages. The paintings visit an old theme in her work representing
her fascination with rocks (mostly from Maine with a few mixed
in from Pennsylvania and Greece) as well as things growing in
the garden. As always, the paintings are ink, watercolor and acrylic
on handmade papers - a technique and medium she has been working
in for the past forty five years.
fascination with handmade papers has, in the last few years, led
to different means of altering paper (most notably with a glycerin/rice
flour/water paste) and using those efforts to create collages
inspired by the surrounding landscape. These pieces, while abstract
in comparison to the paintings are all inspired, and often titled,
by their location within Susquehanna County or the season they
Tom Canouse has carved for
several decades and will again show his versatility with wooden
utensils, bird carvings and abstracted forms.
