‘Collection of Inspiration and Solitude’ will be Chris Carter’s first exhibit at the Crowell Gallery this November.  Chris learned to paint with oils early in life by watching and painting with her father as a child, and developed her own technique and abilities through experience.  “Originally from Massachusetts, I moved to Vermont in 2014. I am inspired by the quietness and beauty in nature that God intended us to experience, and express this solitude in my paintings.  Imagining a spot for myself in each painting to observe that moment in time…and to think that this spot would differ from viewer to viewer, as well as what they would observe there.  I’d like also to inspire my viewers to pick up a brush, and be drawn into creating something wonderful.  I hope to always capture the peacefulness and beauty of rural life in New England and elsewhere, and portray this quietness richly on canvas, though oils and watercolor.”
