Rose Bryant Original Painting "Koi"

The Koi fish have made their way to a new home... a home that also has a very strong affection for the Alewife fish! The new owner of this painting also received a gift certificate for a free lunch from Divine Cafe and Grille as a part of the April special offer. Thank you, Carol! If you are interested in the "Free Lunch" offer, look for the yellow flower painting on this page for the details. Have a great day and thanks for visiting.


Rose Bryant Original Painting at Families First Exhibit

Each year Families First invites local artists to submit original works to an exhibit which becomes the source for images used in their annual "Artists of the Seacoast" calendar. Over 100 pieces of art are entered. Thirteen are chosen (one of which is for the cover). The sales generated from the calendars help provide affordable healthcare, dental care, education, and other programs for those in need in the Seacoast.
I have entered the event for the first time and am looking forward to a flurry of fun, as well as seeing what the other artists are exhibiting. My painting for this exhibit is a 24x24 acrylic on canvas titled "North Church in Spring". A reception honoring all the artists is Tuesday, April 28 at 5:30 at the Discover Portsmouth Center. The 13 works to be used for the 2010 calendar will be announced that evening and the exhibit will be up through May 25. Be sure and keep an eye out in the fall for the 2010 calendar and help support a good cause!


Rose Bryant "Running Dreams" Sold at PHLY

"Running Dreams", pictured, is a larger 18x36 version of an earlier small 6x6 inch painting called "Wild Horses". I painted this imagery again because I loved the color and the free loose brush strokes of the original smaller piece and wanted to work it into a larger format. As an artist, I am always exploring what feels good to me for a "style"... and this direction is calling me. "Running Dreams" was on the walls at PHLY and has now found its way to a happy home. Thank you Deb and Mika at PHLY.
My exhibit runs through April and includes over 60 paintings. Stop in and check out the modern furniture and accessories, as well. It is all a visual treat.
PHLY is at 222 State St. in Portsmouth and is open Wednesday-Sunday.
Have a glorious sunny day! Thanks for looking.

Rose Bryant, Scenes of Exeter. "Exeter Bandstand"

A very popular sight in Exeter, the bandstand is right in the heart of downtown. I always feel I am in one of the most beautiful spots in New Hampshire each time I pass by it... it is just one of the many symbols of hospitality and charm in our small town.
This painting pictured is 11x14 on canvas. It is one of several images of Exeter to be exhibited at our next Art Open House and Boutique here on Union and Front Streets. Mark your calendar for Friday and Saturday, May 8 and 9. We will have all kinds of great things to share.... Lily Designs one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry, Lori Martone Pottery, Deb McLarnon Photography, along with some of my most invigorating color.
Giving back to community: Lisa Cochran of Lily Designs will be donating a portion of her earring sales to Womenade and is also donating 100% of the net profits of the "Squamscott" pendant to Squamscott Community Commons. You can also give back by participating in the canned food drive. For each can of food you bring to the open house, you can take 2% off the purchase of any painting up to 10%. Everyone who brings food gets an art postcard as a "thank you" regardless of purchase. All donations are taken to the local food bank.
Hope to see you!
PS... leave a comment.... I would love to know your thoughts about my art.
And feel free to pass this site on to anyone who could use a little color.
