September Guest Artist - Jane Kimbrough

Welcome Guest Artist Jane Kimbrough
Art on Main is pleased to welcome Jane Kimbrough as our guest artist for the month of September for her display of stained glass works. 



Biography of Jane Kimbrough

Jane Kimbrough of Stow, MA is a retired RN, BSN with 45 years of service in Mass General, Boston University, Faulkner, and Brookline Hospitals. Jane also served with Project Hope and the U.S. Navy in Asia following the Indonesian Tsunami, in South America, and with FEMA and the Navy in Louisiana and Mississippi following major hurricanes.

Jane is a mother of four, and today she splits her time between four grandchildren and her pursuits of stained glass art and complex quilt making.

Jane draws her own designs for her works, and with her love of the seashore, she enjoys making beach-combing treasures and other natural stones, the focal point in some of her pieces.

August Guest Artist - Nelly Tonchev-Nelinda



Join us for the opening reception of "Mystical Emona-"Light, Love and Rituals" acrylics and gold leaf by Nelly Tonchev-Nelinda on Thurs, Aug. 7 from  5- 8 p.m.  The exhibit runs August 2 - 31.

Nelinda is a freelance artist and writer who leaves near Boston, MA, her work contains award-winning designs and paintings. She attended the School of Applied Arts in Bulgaria with a major in woodcarving, and holds a Master’s Degree from Suffolk University in Boston.

Nelinda paints mostly from memories and feelings which are transformed expressively through color and line. Whether it is through abstract expressionism or figurative painting, she often returns to her favorite subjects in order to explore the expressive possibilities of a theme. Her artistic interests include the female figure, folklore tales, and the natural world interpreted trough her eyes.

Her painting “Wild Horses” was selected for the July/August 2010 front cover of “Wisdom” magazine. Nelinda exhibited her work in Medford, MA, in 2011 at Springstep Art Gallery in an exhibition called “Happiness All Around,” and received third prize at the Westford Regional Art Event in 2012 for her painting “New Day.”  Her last exhibit “Mystical Emona” was held in PCA Wesford, MA in December 2013 and on March 20th 2014 at the French Cultural Center in Boston, MA. 


Some of Nelinda’s current work can be found at www.nelinda.com.

July Guest Artists and a Farewell


The July guest artists at Art on Main are Frank and Barbara Pespisa who present a selection of their “tiny piece” quilted wall hangings in traditional and contemporary designs. Each 36 x 36 inch quilt is composed of approximately 10,000 finished squares, ¼ inch on a side.  For thirty years the Pespisa’s studio, Pine Tree Quilts in Vermont, has been creating and selling their quilts. They assemble and stitch the pieces and do the quilting by hand. 

We are also sad to announce the departure of one of our founding members   -   artist Laurie G. Miller.  You can continue to follow Laurie at her website www.LaurieGMiller.com.  To thank all those who supported her, Laurie is offering 20% off on her original paintings through the end of July.
