Artist reception planned for February 15, open to public
By Andrew Harris, pictured are Amber Schuson and Amanda Aldrich
What a fantastic space the David A. Howe Library provides to local artists and art lovers!! Two lovely local artists have just finished setting up a dual exhibition for the public to view this month and most of March.
The show is dubbed, “Two Things at Once,” because the artists work in two very different mediums. As you can see from the preview pictures, abstract acrylic painting and crochet work go together like toast and jam!! Amber Schuson is the painter who has wowed the local art scene with vibrant and dynamic paintings. Amanda Aldrich learned to crochet from her grandmother and has taken that art to a new level with a large variety of pieces on display. Learn more about both artist below the preview gallery:

Amanda Aldrich learned how to crochet from her grandmother at a young age and it really took off during the COVID shutdown. Amanda gets great stress relief with her art, in fact she almost finds it meditative. Some of Amanda’s smaller items are available for sale but she is not ready to say goodbye to the bigger pieces.
Amber Schuson is a local self taught artist. Primarily an acrylic painter of abstracts and landscapes, Amber also loves creating colorful unique upcycled art using a variety of materials. With over 20 years of painting experience Amber has a unique style and perspective that makes her art catch the eye. Amber is currently in the process of making her art available for sale online and is always looking for opportunities to get her art out there.
