During June, the DubHub/Dublin Community Center will feature the works of Frankie Brackley Tolman, Carol Doleac and The Prism Painters 2, a group made up of Tolman and some of her former students: Nancy Roberts O’Neill, Roberta Woolfson, Kit Fairchild, Sally Shonk, Colleen Forrest, Rosemary Mack, Mary Cornog and Janet Hymowitz.

Most of the The Prism Painters 2 have lived in the Monadnock region at one point, and first met while Tolman taught a painting class at the former Sharon Arts Center. The public is invited to come meet these artists at a reception on Friday, June 14, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Before the Sharon Arts Center closed, Tolman was a faculty member for 15 years and has continued meeting with her former students every month since for a critique. The word “prism” was chosen as it is known to distort, slant or color whatever is viewed through it.

The Prism Painters use a variety of media, including watercolor, acrylic, gouache, casein, gesso, pastels and oil. What unites them is their use of bright colors, and their abstract style. The idea is not to capture images exactly as they appear, but to capture the essence of their subjects, whether they are clouds, flowers, trees, mountains or bodies of water.

This show may be viewed during open hours or by appointment. For  information, send email to  info@dublincommunitycenter.org. The DubHub is at 1123 Main St. in Dublin.
