Leaf and Line

Painting and Photography by Marguerite Walsh

April 6 - May 9, 2018


The title “Leaf and Line” refers to the predominant elements of Marguerite Walsh’s painting and photography. Her oil paintings are leaf focused compositions including a number of variations: spare compositions of linear plants seen against the surface of water, dense organic patterns, and leaf portraits she refers to as “leaf poses”. In her photography she uses the camera lens to integrate these natural objects with the painterly surfaces. This process allows her to explore the interplay of texture, line and form taking place as the viewer’s eye navigates physical reality and painterly illusion.

Marguerite Walsh holds an MFA in Painting from the University of Pennsylvania, a BS in Art from Skidmore College, and studied at The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She has exhibited her work in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago, and her work is represented in numerous collections. Having taught at New England College as Professor of Art, she now works full time in her studio in Manchester, New Hampshire.

A reception will be held on Friday, April 6, 2018 from 4:30 – 6:30 PM. in the Gallery
