The exhibition is comprised of the work of three artists who have studied watercolor painting for several years with a well known local watercolor artist, Harding Mudge Bush. Every week they meet in his art gallery on Main St in Ayer center, to paint and explore the techniques of watercolor painting.
Judy Fava lives in Lunenburg, MA and has painted in watercolor for many years. She is a member of the Leominster Art Association and the Gardner Area League of Artist. She enjoys her weekly painting at Harding's Gallery in Ayer..
Lee Muir-Haman lives in Townsend, MA. She began her serious study of watercolor painting in 2002. She has been studying with Harding Bush since 2008, and has also taken classes with Ginger Hughes, Byron Carr, and Robert O'Brien. In addition, she has assisted Harding Bush in teaching several two-week Winterim watercolor painting courses for students at Lawrence Academy in Groton, MA. She is especially drawn to painting New England scenes, depicting daily events of rural life and the changing seasons.
Carrin Culotta lives in West Townsend MA and has enjoyed painting throughout her life.. She began study with Harding Bush in 2011. In 2013 she added oil painting to her passions and finds inspiration in painting from nature and the outdoors. She has taken workshops with Stan Moeller and Karen Blackwood, and painted with several local plein air groups and artists. Her ceramic art has developed from several years of study at Sharon Arts in NH with Janet Duchesneau. Her current art display in the Meeting Hall hallway exhibits both her love of hand built ceramics and wood.
