Nashua artist Stacy Topjian Searle will show her black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings in the Nashua Public Library Image Gallery in September and October.
The exhibit is entitled “Drawings from Maise to Mountains.” It includes works representative of rural New Hampshire locations as well as some inspired by spots in Maine, Virginia, and Colorado.
“With my landscapes,” said Searle, “it is always my goal to help the viewer gain a new perspective and appreciation for the natural world.”
Searle’s unique blend of cross hatching, contour lines, parallel lines, and stippling and scumbling techniques create the mood and feel of life and motion.
It was while studying art at the University of Lowell that Searle started working with pen and ink, focusing on illustration. Over the years she has received several awards in international online exhibits and has been awarded first and second place at the Beaver Brook Annual Fall Festival and Nature Art Show in Hollis, N.H.
Meet the artist
The exhibit can be viewed during regular library hours. The public is welcome to meet the artist at a reception in the library’s Image Gallery during Art Walk Nashua on Saturday, October 14, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
