The Drew Friedman Art Place at the Westport Book Shop

Westport Book Shop is partnering with the Drew Friedman Community Arts Center to feature different local artists' work at the Book Shop every month.

Our featured artist for the month of June 2024 is Dorothy Robertshaw

The Westport Book Shop welcomes as guest exhibitor in the Book Shop's Drew Friedman Art Place, local artist Dorothy Robertshaw, who is exhibiting a variety of assemblages and paintings inspired by nature.

 

Dorothy says she paints from her imagination to create richly textured, exuberantly colorful waterscapes and landscapes she sees in her mind's eye.  She works in a large range of media, including oil, acrylic, encaustic wax, pastel, wood, glass and mixed media.

The Westport Book Shop will hold a reception for this exhibit on Thursday, June 13,  2024 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.

Dorothy's artwork will be on exhibit at the Book Shop through June 30, 2024.  All artwork on display is available for purchase.
