Sound of Silence Show at MET Coffeehouse February until the end of March
Imagine walking through the woods after a freshly fallen snow. All the animals are hushed in their shelters. A quiet beauty surrounds you and the only sound you hear is silence. The Mt Washington Valley Arts Association is pleased to announce a new show at the MET Coffeehouse in North Conway Village, themed “Sound of Silence”, on display for February and March. Many paintings in the show perfectly express the stark beauty of winter in the valley. Local and regional artists include Bill Fein, Martha Aucoin, Maryellen Moran, Don Onusseit, Laura Thompson, James O’Donnell, Betty Flournoy Brown and Sharon Allen. New exhibiting artists are Alicia Drakiotes and Jerri Swenson.
All paintings are originals and many depict New England landscapes. The style of these artists varies greatly and spans realism to abstraction. Each has a unique interpretation of the subject, use of color and application of the paint. There is something for everyone to enjoy.
All artworks are for sale through the coffeehouse. And don’t forget to visit the special Bob Gordon Retrospective exhibit at the Main Street Art Gallery around the corner in Norcross Place (next to Sawyer River Trading Co.) Gordon was a beloved local oil painter who passed away last year leaving a legacy of paintings that capture so many local landscapes in all seasons of the year. The MET show will run until the end of March.
The Met Coffeehouse is open seven days a week from 7am until 8pm. For more information, please go to www.mwvarts.org or leave a message at 603-356-2787.
