Karen Silve @ The Barn |  |  |

There is an exuberance to the paintings of Karen Silve – a lovely ease in the way she captures the rich visual impression of nature and renders them, fully alive, in her canvases. Her intuitive work relies on layers of lush colors, aggressive brushwork, and drips that push off the sides of the canvas. Based on synaesthetic impressions of the natural world, her paintings impart an unabashed appreciation of nature’s profusion of shape and color. Her interest in Post-Impressionist and Fauvist paintings are in full evidence here, supported by her intuitive, rhythmic, calligraphic brush strokes. Purposefully abstract, these compositions are a result of piecing together ad hoc sections of developed works, to arrive ultimately at a new and unexpected place.

Daniel Thibeault Art Show @ Dublin Community Center
Apr 11 @ 9:00 am – Apr 25 @ 4:00 pm
Daniel Thibeault Art Show @ Dublin Community Center | Dublin | New Hampshire | United States

The DubHub features the landscapes and small floral artwork of Daniel Thibeault during the month of April. Open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 am to 4:00 (except noon to 1 on Wednesdays). Also open during special events. Admission is free.

Daniel Thibeault is a Peterborough native and is widely recognized throughout the Monadnock Region for his artistic and entrepreneurial skills. He began painting at an early age, and although primarily self taught, attended the Vesper George School of Art in Boston. Being multi-talented, Dan returned to NH after school and worked as a chef in several area establishments, including the Hancock Inn and the Folkway Coffee House. Dan then partnered to create Twelve Pine, a gourmet restaurant and café. After 15 years he sold the business. He now devotes his time primarily to painting and spending time with his grandsons.

Dan’s small florals were exhibited at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts along with the Art in Bloom show in 2003. Dan paints while traveling and has sold art in many countries. He has exhibited extensively locally and his artwork has begun to spider out from the region into surrounding areas. He participates in the Monadnock Open Studio Art Tour and has contributed a piece to the permanent collection of Mt. Monadnock paintings at the newly renovated visitors center at Monadnock State Park in Jaffrey.
