Animal Portraits by Dan Chiamis, Renee Hill, Sarah Marquesen



Hosmer Gallery at Forbes Library (20 West St, Northampton MA)

Reception: July 12, 3:30-5:30 PM

SARAH MARQUESEN: For the Love of Animals - In her realistic paintings, Sarah tries to capture the personality and soul of both domestic and wild animals.

DAN CHIAMIS: Once Upon A Time At The Zoo - One day we may look back at zoos and marvel at their barbarity or be grateful for the species they saved from extinction.  My hope is that the work on exhibit here speaks to both sides of this conversation without prejudice, and inspires the viewer to explore their own thoughts and feelings with the subject.

RENEE HILL: Colors of the Seasons - Renee is a macro photographer from Easthampton. Her favorite subjects are the tiny creatures that are often unseen – spiders, bugs, frogs and other amphibians.
