Spot Pond Press Release

Local Artist, Michele Lauriat, will be showing oversized watercolor drawings in a solo exhibition at the Branch Gallery in North Adams, MA.  The exhibition, Spot Pond, will include several drawings inspired by the Fells Woods conservation area.
“The drawings in this exhibition are inspired by current and childhood wanderings in a conservation area not far from where I live. As I child, I picked blueberries there with my father while hearing stories about his childhood adventures in the same woods. These days it is my nephew who explores the area with me. He fishes and catches crawfish while I draw. While we seek out the details of the day, we participate in a pattern that is too big for us to see.” –Michele Lauriat
Spot Pond opens July 25th with a reception from 6 to 9pm, and closes on August 25th.  The exhibition is just one of many events in DownStreet Art’s 2013 celebration (
