August Meeting Room Artist - Lynette Fiske

Come see her "Entrance and Exit" exhibit, on display all month. As she writes, " Look on these paintings as doorways to other places: some are on the Cape, some in New England, and others are of locations overseas. They are depictions of places, people, and things captured at a moment in time and filtered through my viewpoint...all art is a conversation between artist and viewer, so I invite you to make up your own title, your own interpretation and story."
