Artists Reception & Showing Dec. 7 in Lincoln

Artists Reception & Showing Dec. 7 in Lincoln

The lobby gallery space at the North Country Center for the Arts in Lincoln has been host to many regional and New England artists with works in multiple mediums. Now on display are the works of three remarkable and noted fiber artists of NH: Teresa Hollingsworth, Solveig Wolstenholme, and Deanna Andree.

All three employ a variety of styles and techniques to create art pieces that range from felted fabrics to intricate quilts. The subjects include landscapes and still life, contemporary and abstract, and offer a feast for the eyes to see their variety in one stunning display.

The public is invited to view the art any time the theatre is open; and to attend a special Artists Reception on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 6:00 p.m. Light refreshments and an opportunity to speak with the artists themselves. There’s also a performance that evening of the holiday musical “A White Mountains Christmas,” and tickets may be purchased at the door.

Join noted NH fiber artists Teresa Hollingsworth, Solveig Wolstenholme, and Deanna Andree at a reception and gallery showing of their works on Saturday, December 7 at 6:00 p.m. in Lincoln. The show has been on display at the Lobby Gallery of the North Country Center for the Arts at Jean’s Playhouse this fall, and the reception, with light refreshments, will offer an opportunity to not only view their art but also to speak with the artists themselves.

Hollingsworth, a NH native, currently lives in Woodstock, and has been quilting for 20 years or more, employing traditional methods as well as applique to create her pieces “with flair,” as she describes them.

Self-taught, the artistry of Deanna Andree is expressed in needle felting, using wool dyted in multiple colors to create landscapes, florals and abstract pieces that employ materials often locally sourced from farmers who sell fibers from their sheep, goats, rabbits and llamas. Her work is represented at “Artisans by the Bay” inside the Oglethorpe Fine Arts in Meredith.

Born in Finland, Wolstoneholme came to the US at the age of 18, earned a BA in fashion design that led to her career in fashion design before she began using skills taught by her mother to focus on quilted wall art. A resident of Hebron, her works are on display at Artistic Roots in Plymouth.

The three will share their stories and their works at this reception at Jean’s Playhouse, 34 Papermill Drive in Lincoln. The reception is free and open to the public, from 6:00-7:00 p.m., prior to a ticketed performance of A White Mountain Christmas at the Playhouse on December 8.
