CONWAY — The Mount Washington Valley Arts Association is starting a new monthly program at the Met Coffee House at Settlers Green.
On the first of each month, a new member artist will be featured in the arts associations section of the coffee house. As you enter the Met, it is located on the left side.
Each artist will be hanging their own display of original artwork, showing off their own medium and style. The goal of the program is to give each artist more individual exposure for their work and to garner more sales for the artist as well as the arts association.
A reception will be held each month where you can meet the artist, talk to them about how they work, what inspires them and enjoy some refreshments.
The program kicked off in June with local artist Noreen Eagleston. Eagleston has had a lifelong love for the art of oil painting. She attended the School of Practical Art in Boston and went on for bachelor and master's degrees in business and education.
She painted for pleasure while pursuing other occupations and has been forever inspired by nature. While Eagleston’s form of art is not a photo and takes on artistic liberties, she is a realist painting landscapes, flowers and even moose and horses. She has studied under various New England artist and has shown in galleries in Maine, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
The public is invited to come to an artist reception at the Met Coffee House in Settlers Green on Friday, June 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
