The Artful Mind 2014
Marguerite Bride has spent the long cold winter preparing for summer shows, stretching her scope of subjects and venturing from her comfort zone a bit. Mostly known for house portraits and scenes with multiple structures, Bride has also been painting nature scenes, swamps and wetlands, and seascapes. These new paintings will be “officially” displayed at summer shows and galleries in Lenox, Wickford RI, Marblehead, MA and Pomfret CT, but you can always catch a sneak preview in her studio.
A series of new paintings were recently delivered to Celebrations Gallery in Pomfret, Connecticut for their spring exhibit. Included are sunlit country lanes, old grist mills, some downtown village scenes and some musical subjects.
Bride is always happy to consider commission work. A subject she particularly enjoys is painting house portraits, and has now done nearly 150 homes locally, nationally and some in Europe. Commissioning a piece is much easier than most people imagine. Check out Bride’s website for more information, or contact the artist directly.
Bride invites visitors to her studio at NU Arts Studios, 311 North Street, Pittsfield during “open studios” on each first Friday of the month, held in conjunction with Pittsfield’s First Fridays Artswalk from 5-8 pm. At the NU Arts Studios you will see up to 18 different artists who welcome the public to see their working spaces and meet with the artists.
