    Please join us in celebrating the exhibition opening for Touching on Water: Paintings by Thomas Paquette. This exhibition features over 60 oil and gouache paintings dating from 1992 through 2014, each composition brought to focus by some form of water, the almost-too-common-to-be-noticed element, be it a lake, rain, river, or snow.

    Artist, Thomas Paquette, will discuss the focus on water in his exhibition, as well as the necessity of the element in our lives. Training for a time as a naturalist, Paquette’s ecological themes have been woven into his landscape paintings since he became a full-time painter in the 1980’s. Paquette will also talk about his artistic influences, his painting methods, and perhaps some of his experiences freight train hopping. 

    Exhibition Dates: January 23, 2015 – March 29, 2015
