Big, bold and colorful – our first art show for 2017 provides a nice contrast to our monochromatic winter scenery. Margaret Dries of Sunset Hill Studio is the featured artist. Paintings will be on exhibit in January and February.
Margaret was raised in Wisconsin, studied fine art at the University of Wisconsin, exploring figure drawing, 2 and 3-dimensional art, illustration and graphic design. She lived in Chicago before moving to New Hampshire. She owns Sunset Hill Studio a design and art business in North Conway, New Hampshire.
Margaret works as a graphic artist and art director designing catalogs, working on photo shoots and other marketing pieces for businesses. After so much computer work it is a joy to break away from the electronics and work with paint on canvas. She is recognized for the bold colors, shapes and brushstrokes that play out on her canvas as the piece takes on a life of its own.
Margaret has pieces in private collections and has exhibited in the Mount Washington Valley with both the MWV Arts Association, Art in the Park and Group 8 Gallery in Jackson.
