Princeton – A beautiful new exhibit of original acrylic paintings and fine art prints is now available for viewing and purchase at the Princeton branch of the Barre Bank and Princeton Town Hall (Bagg Hall) by Princeton Arts Society member Lori MacDonald of Gardner. The exhibit features rural settings, land and seascapes, mountain views, farm animals, seasons, and beautiful light, and reflect the places MacDonald knows and treasures, right here in New England.

“Color! It’s probably the most notable feature of my work and I use it in many layers to develop rich undertones and vibrant highlights,” said MacDonald. “When I plan a painting I first look for interesting color arrangement. Sometimes the actual subject is secondary to my mission, then once it becomes the focus I have a strong affection for it.”

MacDonald has painted with acrylics since the early 1970s, and her paintings have received numerous awards and recognition in local and regional juried or judged shows. Two of her notable achievements include “At Home in Wachusett Meadow,” which was selected for the cover of the Princeton Arts Society/Mass Audubon Wachusett Meadow 2012 calendar, and “The Path at Dunn Park,” selected by Mayor Mark Hawke of Gardner for his 2010 mayoral greeting card.
