Thank you for another great year on the "tour". Betty Bryden and Tom Canouse will both be showing at 197 Ridge St. in Montrose and look forward to seeing you with new work.

Betty Bryden will be showing new watercolor paintings and collages. The paintings visit an old theme in her work representing her fascination with rocks (mostly from Maine with a few mixed in from Pennsylvania and Greece) as well as things growing in the garden. As always, the paintings are ink, watercolor and acrylic on handmade papers - a technique and medium she has been working in for the past forty five years.

Betty's fascination with handmade papers has, in the last few years, led to different means of altering paper (most notably with a glycerin/rice flour/water paste) and using those efforts to create collages inspired by the surrounding landscape. These pieces, while abstract in comparison to the paintings are all inspired, and often titled, by their location within Susquehanna County or the season they are capturing.

Tom Canouse has carved for several decades and will again show his versatility with wooden utensils, bird carvings and abstracted forms.
