Watercolor artist Francelia Clark of Hancock has gathered a couple decades of her work for an exhibit titled “Joy,” which will run from Sept. 2 through Oct. 11 at the Hancock Town Library, 25 Main St.  There will be an opening reception Saturday, Sept. 2, from 2 to 4 p.m.

As a third-generation of a family summering at Lake Nubanusit since 1913, Clark had a career as a medievalist and writing teacher at University of Michigan. Throughout those years, she and her family continued their summer presence on the lake. In retirement, she and her husband Walter made Hancock their permanent home, and she transitioned to an art student in watercolor.

Especially drawn to the moods of Lake Nubanusit, Clark has captured many views of it in in all seasons. Another of Clark’s pleasures is riding her pony, which provides a model for some of her paintings. Her teachers have included several at the former Sharon Arts Center.

She stated, “Having been a writing teacher and a permanent art student, I believe in revision,” several of the paintings in this exhibit have been recently revised. Observing the color and composition of land, water and wildlife is a main focus of her artistic process.

Exhibits can be viewed in the Daniels Room during regular library hours of Monday and Wednesday 2 to 6 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call the library at 603-525-4411 before visiting to ensure no special events are scheduled at that time.
