Art of Peter McKee at Rowley Public Library
Peter McKee, a long-time resident of Ipswich, graduated from Northeastern, has served in the Army and has worked in sales and marketing. He has been painting since he met his wife, Eileen, 50 years ago. Peter loves color and paints in bright acrylic contemporary designs when he is not reading, his first love. He is represented by the Kennedy Gallery in Portsmouth, NH. A sample of his work will be on display through January.
Pine Grove Student Art in our Display Case
The Pine Grove School Kindergarten students have been designing pinch pots! Students practiced making slab and coils with modeling clay before creating these pieces out of Crayola Model Magic Air Dry Clay. Each is unique in shape and painting style – they are so proud of them! Please enjoy the hard work of these emerging artists! Their work will be on display through January.
Display Case schedule has openings
We are looking for collectors and enthusiasts who want to share what they love with the community. Do you collect PEZ dispensers, trains, comic books? We have a display case for that! Are you part of a club, like a knitting group or local bird watchers? Help us educate the community by doing an informational display in our display case. The display case is available for a month at a time, and we still have slots open for 2017. For more information, call Amy Roderick at 978-948-2850 .
Looking for Local Artists
We have showcased some great art in the past, from seascapes and portraits to beadwork and needlepoint. We currently have a few openings left in our 2018 calendar. If you have a talent for painting, photography, or anything else that can be displayed on the wall, or you collect something that fits the bill, share it with your community. We would love to see it! For more information, call Amy Roderick at 978-948-2850.
