A green thought in a green shade
Robert Baart retired in 2009 after 35 years of teaching painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Since then he has been painting full time in his space at the Fenway Studios. He has always been an observer of nature and the landscape. His paintings hover between realism and abstraction using robust colors and strong gestural marks. Although his work is not specific to any one place, it is a personal expression of his relationship to the landscape and his concerns for the earth’s environment.

New Ceramics from Contoocook
Ceramic artist Boyan Moskov brings all the elements of fine art to his work: sculpture, drawing and painting. He was born in Ruse, Bulgaria and studied at the Troyan Art School and the Sofia Art Academy. He moved to the United States in 2007 and settled in his wife’s home state of New Hampshire. His pieces often begin on the wheel and then are further altered by hand and carving techniques. The surfaces may be enlivened with colorful glazes or decorated with incised lines and carvings. He is inspired by his medium and is constantly exploring new ideas and forms.
