Hither and Yon

The Bridgewater Public Library will feature an exhibit titled “Hither and Yon” by Margaret Farrell Bruno in the Flora T. Little Art Gallery. The exhibition will be on display during the months of October and November.

Margaret Farrell Bruno lives and paints on the Massachusetts South Shore. Being a native of the area, she grew up surrounded by the splendid coastline and luscious cranberry bogs, which have inspired her landscapes. Margaret’s vibrant style is influenced by her sensitivity to the use of color, light, and composition.

Melding the ideals of realism and impressionism, her bold artwork responds to the energy and emotion of her subject matter. Margaret is a nationally award-winning artist who was formally educated at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and launched a three-pronged career as a fine artist, portraitist, and illustrator. Margaret’s landscapes are included in the permanent collection of the Ocean Spray Corporation, Perini Private Collection, New England Met Life, Massachusetts General Hospital, along with other public and private collections. Artist's Statement: “I am continually humbled and honored with the beauty of color and light whether it be on the soft face of a precious child or on a majestic landscape before me. I hope to always consider it a privilege, a blessing and a challenge to be inspired by that beauty.” Website:
