A Sense of Place

The Bridgewater Public Library will feature “A Sense of Place” a combined exhibit of pastel paintings by Laurinda Phakos O’Connor and Maureen Spinale in the Flora T. Little Art Gallery during the months of December and January.

As an artist, Laurinda Phakos O’Connor strives to let simplified strokes create the up-close excitement of color, texture and expression on the surface of paper while she pushes to capture the sense and feel from the landscape.

Maureen Spinale has a passion for painting trees and is drawn to the complexities of tangled branches and fractured light beams through the forest. She has evolved her style from a realistic approach to a more contemporary perspective flecked with bold colors, strong lines and light.

Both women are award winning artist exhibiting in Boston and on the South Shore. They are Gallery Artists at the South Shore Art Center and Signature Artists of Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. For more information, visit;

An Artist Meet and Greet will be held on Saturday, January 12th at 11:00 am.

The Flora T. Little Gallery is open during regular library hours: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 9a.m.-8p.m.; Thursday 10a.m.-5p.m., Friday, Saturday 10a.m.-2p.m.
