Paintings With Letters and Words
Julia Noyes and Howard Kaye
The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular library hours.
The watercolor and mixed media paintings in this exhibition all incorporate letterforms or words. Some of the paintings are abstract, some are realistic; in some the words tell a story, in others the letters function as design elements; but always, the artists believe, the letters add another dimension to the paintings.
Julia Noyes has studied art and painted in Italy, China, Taos, New Mexico, Egypt, Scandinavia, England, Ireland and Alaska. She is known throughout the state for her workshops, school residencies, and mural projects. Noyes has been the director of the Noyes Art Gallery since 1993, working with over 60 artists every month.
