Exhibit - Watercolor Paintings by Cecilia Lotse

Saturday Nov 1, 2014 Sunday Nov 30, 2014

For the month of November, the watercolors of Piermont resident Cecilia Lotse will be on display in the Library's gallery space. The show is titled, "The Coast of Maine," and as Cecilia says, “It is the untamed nature of the coast that speaks to me.”

An opening reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, November 2nd from 2:00 - 4:00 PM. All are welcome to attend.

Cecilia Lotse was born 1950 in Uppsala, Sweden and moved to the United States in 1966. After a long and distinguished career in the service of the United Nations, primarily with Unicef, Cecilia turned her attention to art.

Watercolor is her medium of preference. After a career with a highly analytical focus, Cecilia’s art tends towards the romantic and to a contemplation of mood, towards identifying the sources of beauty that feed her soul, the greater context in which we all live, and to the visual experiences that arrest her. Her work is mainly studio based, using her own photographic images as reference.
