WESTFORD — Two Westford artists will be displaying their work in June. A submitted press release can be found below.

The colorful works of 2 Westford artists—Judy Miller and Gail Flannery will be part of a show held at the Bolton Public Library during the month of June. The show, “Places I Remember” is a compilation of en plein air oil paintings of the surrounding area painted by Judy, Gail, and 10 other local artists painted from last spring to present.

Plein air painting is the artistic practice of painting outdoors to capture the appearance of natural sunlight as it flickers and fades. Championed by the French Impressionists in the late 1800’s, it is the best way for an artist to observe and interpret the true colors of nature while authentically capturing the mood and feeling of a place.

This method of painting can be challenging as the artist must contend with rapidly changing weather conditions, wind and clouds while capturing the true feeling of the scene; yet it is the most rewarding.

Come meet Judy, Gail, and 10 other participating artists and get a first peek of their work at the opening reception to be held at the Bolton Public Library, Thursday, June 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the 1st floor community meeting room. The Bolton Public Library is located at 738 Main St., Bolton, MA.

The paintings will remain on display for the month of June during regular library hours— Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sat 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
