The art of Teri Canelle on exhibit
The Rowley Public Library is currently hosting the landscapes of Teri Canelle. She is most passionate about painting in the tonalist style, where paint is applied in layers of dark tones, muted hues and touches of light to create atmospheric, luminous effects. A native of western Pennsylvania, Teri Canelle has lived most of her adult life in coastal New England and currently lives in Byfield, Massachusetts. She is affiliated with Cleo Gallery in Kemare, Ireland, Eventide Gallery in Essex, and Somerset Interiors in Hamilton, and is a member of the Rockport Art Association. The display will be up through January.
In Our Display Case
Wreaths Across America
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.
Join us by sponsoring a veterans’ wreath at a cemetery near you, volunteering or donating to a local fundraising group.
This display is sponsored by our local Rowley Grange.
