Chocorua, NH - Art Works Gallery has been busy expanding its exhibit area for the "Process and Light" Art Show, open now until January 12. This unique exhibit spotlights the journeys of three remarkable artists: Peg Scully, Nancy Marsden and John Watkins who show us what over 100 years of artistic experience can create...it will WOW you. Our local followers and those from away will recognize these well-known members of Art Works.


Meet each artist during the three Artist Spotlight Events starting on Sunday, November 17 at 1 p.m. for a 'tea and talk' and book signing with Peg Scully. An accomplished watercolorist and oil painter known for sensitive portraits as well as endearing landscapes, Peg will give us insight into her work and the making of her book "Painting Freedom" about the Village of Freedom, her home town.


On Sunday, December 8, at 1 p.m., meet Nancy Marsden and learn about studying with Tony Van Hassalt and Ernie Brown which helped shape her future in oil painting. Enjoy her vivid impressionist oils, pastels and watercolors, and hear how she works. "With so much natural beauty surrounding me, there is always another view waiting for my interpretation."
