Appalachian-inspired art on exhibit at Jaffrey Civic Center

An exhibit entitled “Appalachian Spring” by Kristina Wentzell is on display in the Auditorium Gallery at the Jaffrey Civic Center through April 20.

Twenty-one years after artist Kristina Wentzell set out on a journey to hike the Appalachian Trail, she returned to those mountains. This time the mountains are her muse for a series of paintings. The subjects are the landscapes, and the flora and fauna of the Appalachian corridor.

Wentzell took hundreds of slides and photographs while hiking the Appalachian Trail and is using many of them as inspiration for her colorful paintings. Oil paintings and selection of her photographs are included in the exhibit.

She has studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, in France with Parsons School of Design and she received her Bachelor of Fine Art at the Massachusetts College of Art. Her works are shown at fine art shows and festival throughout New England and also in her Happy Camper Mobile Art Gallery -- a vintage 1966 trailer converted to gallery on wheels.
