Now through the end of September, the Franklin Gallery at RiverStones Custom Framing, 33 N. Main Street in Rochester, will host an exhibit featuring the work of North Conway artist Gina Lafontaine.
Gina Lafontaine is a self-taught abstract artist based in her hometown of North Conway, New Hampshire. She intuitively creates her artwork on paper using a ruler with various markers and pens. Acrylic inks are used when adding any color. Squares in particular are prominent in her work, representing balance and order.
“The effect of layering blooms the other elements of design,” Gina says,” which adds to the simplistic shapes making them quite striking.” Take a closer look and you will find the power of three throughout her work, as “that number has always appeared at the right time guiding my journey through life. It’s a small subtle symbol that things are as they should be.”
The exhibit is available for viewing during RiverStones Custom Framing’s regular business hours: Wednesday through Friday, 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. For information about this exhibit and other RiverStones events and services, call (603) 812-1488, or send an e-mail to [email protected].
