Toy Land Revisited at Amherst Town Library
AMHERST – The Friends of the Amherst Town Library is pleased to welcome back William Cheever Turner and his incredible oil paintings on display for the month of December and the first part of January. Bill paints in the narrative realism genre and for this exhibit will have a focus of his Vintage Toys paintings. He will also be displaying some of his inspired toys with his paintings. The exhibit will be from December 1 to January 15.
Although distressed vintage vehicle compositions were his first love, Bill’s focus has changed to toys from the 50’s to the 80’s eras which show wear from use. Whether it be a Teddy bear, pull toy, or mechanical robot they illicit a special characteristic--they inspire a child’s imagination, as well as his own. Bill depicts these magical toys in unusual settings giving them a life of their own. It is a joy for Bill to create a story on canvas, and especially meaningful when someone relates to his work. Bill hopes you enjoy his work as much as he enjoys creating it.
All are welcome to stop in the Amherst Town Library to view these amazing works. No sign up required to attend the artist reception Sunday December 9 from 2 to 4pm. Visit Bill’s website, turnwoodfineart.com, to view archived works as well as paintings for sale and more information. Feel free to contact Bill personally by phone (603-673-3782) or e-mail through his website.
Interested in having an art show at the Amherst Town Library, contact Sharron April at FOLArtists@gmail.com for more information.

“Fall Art Exhibit” at Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden
Artists: Stephanie Bush, Dustan Knight, Pamela R. Tarbell, and Soo Rye Yoo, four mature women artists with impressive resumes on exhibit through December 24.
CONCORD – As artists, they started drawing with crayons from an early age and never looked back. Their talent was noted in high school as their love of art expanded. Continuing to art school they honed their skills, receiving Bachelor of Fine Art Degrees en route to their successful careers.
Stephanie Bush grew up in Canada and received her fine art degree before moving to Vermont, where she settled and raised a family. Her love of painting cows is evident through the connection she establishes in their direct and gentle gaze.
Dustan Knight’s love of flowers lead her to write a book, and to give art lessons and demonstrations to numerous groups. With seasonal changes, she is moved to paint abstract birch trees in the so-called off season.
Pamela R. Tarbell is director of the Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden for the twenty-two years. She was recently picked by New Hampshire Magazine as one of the women artists in New Hampshire to keep your eye on.
Soo Rye Yoo is from South Korea and has settled into New Hampshire as her permanent home. Her contemporary paintings are inspired by the natural surroundings and her appreciation of the environment.

Howard S. Muscott is Artist of the Month at ArtHub Gallery
NASHUA – Amherst, NH resident Howard S. Muscott will be displaying his artwork at the Nashua Area Artists Association Art Hub Gallery, 30 Temple Street, Nashua, during the month of December.
Howard Muscott’s photography has captured the exquisite beauty of the natural world and the amazing wildlife within it for more than 45 years. Grounded in his early years of hiking, backpacking, and mountain climbing, Howard's love for nature photography is fueled by the exquisite beauty of the natural world. “The ideal photograph tells a story that speaks directly to the heart and moves people to self-reflection. It combines one’s vision for the image with the best natural, ideally golden light, and requires both persistence and opportunity.”
Self-taught, Howard has had more than 25 individual and 40 group shows highlighting among other things autumn colors, Southwestern peoples and light, the mountains of Alaska, Colorado and the Pacific Northwest, and wildlife. Howard’s work has been published on the cover of national journals in education, in newspapers and books, and used on educational and other websites. Howard was the featured artist at the 34th Annual Beaver Brook Fall Festival in 2014. He has won numerous awards for both wildlife and portraits including most recently, Best in Show four years in a row for his Snowy Owl in Flight, Black Bear in a Storm, Great Gray Owl Flying into the Golden Light, and Prayerful Owl at Beaver Brook Association. He is currently the chairperson of the High School Scholarship program at the Manchester Artist Association. His work can be found on his website (www.chasingthegoldenlight.com) and at various stores, galleries, and office buildings around NH.
