Gallery Exhibits

The Old Courthouse Gallery 

December 2015 - Alma LaFrance

"Through Slanted Light"
An Exhibit of Oil Paintings by Alma LaFrance, Huntington, MA:

“Struck by how the setting sun created fairy lights amongst darkened tree trunks, I was moved to create a series of oil paintings in an attempt to express “The Light” that flows and bounces and reflects beneath the woodland canopy.”

This series will be included in a larger exhibit of oil landscapes to be hung at the Old Courthouse Art Gallery, 99 Main Street, Northampton MA, December 2015 and January 2016.

The public is invited to view this exhibit during the hours the Hampshire County Courthouse is open and during December’s Arts Night Out, Friday, December 11, 2015, 5-8 pm.
