“Point of View”
The Eleventh Annual Open Studio & Show by Salem artist and art educator, Paula Beaulieu, takes place on Saturday and Sunday, November 17 and 18 from 1p.m. to 5p.m. at her studio, 2 Emerald Ave., Salem. The Show entitled “Point of View” was inspired by her Spring trip to Holland to visit the world-renown Keukenhoff gardens and flower fields and to experience the beauty and light of the Dutch countryside. Her signature painting in this show captures the only windmill in the world that still grinds ores into powdered pigments for paint. It is surrounded by the beauty of the Dutch sky. Some of the small works, including one of Serd Kerk, South Church in Amsterdam were painted “en plein air” from unusual points of view, including those of the flower fields. In honor of the eleventh anniversary, all paintings will be 20% off.
