Carrie Glessner

GREENSBORO – Westfield artist Carrie Glessner will debut her first solo exhibit, “Colors of the Kingdom,” at the Greensboro Free Library for the month of June.

Glessner has been making art her entire life, and now alongside her main career as a summer camp director at Hosmer Point Camp in Craftsbury.

She began practicing watercolor painting in 2020 in an effort to capture what she calls “the color harmonies I so appreciate in the world around me. Watercolor benefits from both detail-oriented planning, and embracing the unexpected and the spontaneous as the painting unfolds.”

Glessner takes inspiration from, and photos of, the landscapes she sees while driving around the Northeast Kingdom, as well as the colorful people and animals found here. She also works from sketches and often paints landsacpes “en plein air.” She most recently participated in the Vermont Watercolor Society juried member’s show in South Burlington.

The exhibit’s opening reception with light refreshments will be held Sunday, June 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The library and gallery are located at 53 Wilson Street. For exhibit and library hours contact the library at (802) 533-2531 or  [email protected]
