"Quiet Light"
Reception: Friday, April 26, 5-7 pm 
Painter Stella Elliston, who lives in Alford, MA, graduated from Ohio University with a BA in English/Fine Arts. Says Elliston, "It has been my good fortune to study with very fine painters in the area who have taught me a great deal about composition, light, shadow, and the poetry that can live in a painting."
She especially enjoys having her work in cafes and bookstores, where the life of the community thrives. This is Stella's second exhibit at our bookstore. 
Exhibit: April 26-June 17, 2019
