Reception: Wednesday, October 12, 5:30-7 p.m.

As a filmmaker working for the United Nations, Paul Klee was able to travel to many distant and often off-beat places in the world.  When he had free time, he turned his camera lens towards both people and landscapes.  Since then he has continued to focus his camera on subjects in nearby and faraway places.  The wide-ranging photos in this exhibition represent a photographic journey spanning more than 50 years.

Barbara Newton: Collages


Trees, by Barbara Newton
(paper collage)

Now showing, through June 30, 2016

My collages, or papier collé, are meant to evoke the environment as I experience it in various settings.  The out-of-doors provides my visual and emotional stimulation.  From this I compose images of color, shape and texture.  The result can be lyrical, abstract or representational. The papers are handmade primarily and come from this country, Japan, and other cultures.   -Barbara Newton

Barbara holds degrees in fine art and fine arts education. Her work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibits in New York, Massachusetts, Georgia, Vermont and New Hampshire and is included in lots of private collections. She lives in Lyme.
