Appalachian Mountain Club presents artist Rebecca Klementovich

BRETTON WOODS, N.H.- - The Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center at Crawford Notch is the setting for a showing of Rebecca Klementovich artwork. Her work will be on display from April 4, 2020 through July 3, 2020 in the Mt. Willard Dining Room. The exhibit is free and open to the public. An opening reception is set for Saturday, April 4, from 4;30 p.m. to 6 p.m. with dinner available for purchase that evening.  

Rebecca’s work unites Abstract painting with Semi Landscapes.  She uses a unique colorful palette to express nature.  Klementovich seeks to introduce a new color palette and style of painting to New England that can challenge the hold that traditional schools have on the region. Her bright colors and the motion that can be seen through her strong brush strokes seek to represent the natural rhythm and vibrancy that can be seen in the mountains and trees all around us.  

The exhibit is one in a series of displays of artwork depicting a sense of place in the White Mountains. Each year AMC welcomes 4 artists to show their work spirited by the dramatic landscape of this area.   

With extraordinary artworks by masters such as Thomas Cole, Albert Beirstadt and Frank Henry Shapleigh, Crawford Notch has a long standing tradition of attracting landscape painters to capture the allure of the White Mountains on canvas. AMC recognizes that modern day artists reflect similar connections to the landscape in their own style and honors present day landscape artists by offering the opportunity for them to share their craft and inspiration.
