April 2 - 25, NH Art Association member Ann Tolson will have a solo exhibition on the Gerry Frazier Wall of the Small Works Gallery. Ann will be exhibiting a group of recently completed paintings that are all inspired by an older style she rediscovered after having put them in her rack nineteen years ago.
Ann says, “It turned out that it was very good for me - I had fun doing them - it made my old brain work on ideas for the next paintings. Everything had to come out of my head. To link them up with the original paintings I kept them all in the same colours.”
An Opening Reception will be held Friday, April 4th from 5 to 8 pm.
"The Moment It Clicks: The Mentor-Mentee Relationship in Photography"
April 2 - 25, Debra Woodward will share an exhibit with her photography teacher of five years, Robert Chiller. On one shared wall of the East Gallery, Debra and Robert will compare and contrast their photographic visions of Paris through images taken in separate winter trips to Paris.

An opening reception will be held this Friday, April 4th from 5 - 8 pm.
