Thursday, August 1, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm – Latticework Artists’ Reception


Tower Hill Botanic Garden, 11 French Drive, Boylston, Massachusetts, will present an exhibit of mixed media and prints of Kim Henry and Susan Jaworski-Stranc entitled “Latticework” from July 31 through September 8, and an artists’ reception will take place Thursday, August 1, from 6 – 7:30 pm.  The reception is free and open to the public. Kim Henry is an artist and environmental scientist from Groton, Massachusetts, who has studied pastels. Her exhibit features mixed-media landscapes created with soft pastels and acrylic paints applied to an under-painting of scraps of mulberry paper. The mulberry papers come in a variety of colors and textures that she uses to capture the depth and fabric of the landscape. Her technique highlights what she loves most in the natural landscape: light and shadow on trees and slopes, lush vegetation and bright flowers, an glimpses of distant hills and secluded gardens. Susan Jaworski-Stranc is an artistic printmaker from Lowell, Massachusetts, who has studied at SUNY Buffalo and the University of Maryland. She also received her Teaching Certificate from the Massachusetts College of Art.  Jaworski-Stranc specializes in the creation of reduction linoleum prints (see below.) Her exhibit will focus on tree forms within an informal landscape. Their unique shapes, linear beauty and textures are what she likes to describe in her block prints. Born from one block of linoleum, her relief prints have the color nuances and rich textural surfaces of an oil painting.  For directions, visit www.towerhillbg.org.
