'The Tree Knows' by Renee Schneider
(Amesbury, MA)—The Provident Bank’s Lobby for the Arts in Amesbury is pleased to present “Alternate Realms of Possibility” featuring the artwork of Becca Donohue, Elizabeth Wilson Jackson and Renee Schneider. The exhibit is on display to the public during regular bank hours through May 8, 2013 in the lobbies of The Provident Bank’s Amesbury branches, located at 5 Market Street and the corner of Route 110 and Main Street.
The public is invited to an Artists’ Reception honoring Becca Donohue, Elizabeth Wilson Jackson and Renee Schneider on Monday, April 8, 2013 from 5:30-7:00 pm at The Provident Bank, 5 Market Street, Amesbury. Light refreshments will be served.
Becca Donohue is a junior at The Boston Institute of Art, majoring in photography and is also an art education major at Lesley University. She has been a serious photographer since the 8th grade. “Lola”, her camera, is her best friend. Becca’s specialty is showing the world a different perspective on common objects and situations, while capturing moments in time that would be otherwise lost or unnoticed.
Elizabeth Wilson Jackson is an Amesbury resident and a local artist. She has worn many hats and travelled through multiple professions, only to be drawn back time and again to her one true calling; to create by any medium necessary. “Bio-Karmic Meditation Art” is a highly stylized and methodical process that Elizabeth has developed to provoke an experiential observation of the unconscious self. It is the esoteric reflection of the human condition as it reacts to cause and effect.
Renee Schneider is a resident of Amesbury and a local artist. She has a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Graphic Design, and a Master’s of Education in Creative Art and Learning. She has worked as a graphic artist and also worked as a kindergarten teacher for several years. Now, combining her love of art, and teaching, she owns and operates Colorful Kids, in Amesbury, providing private art lessons to children while she continues to develop her own art. Renee’s art is an eclectic mix of acrylic painting and mixed media. She is known for her whimsical style and vibrant color. She has also written and illustrated, ‘Swing Time’, her first published children’s book. Her other talents include commissioned portraits of people or pets, and also mural painting.
The Provident Bank’s Lobby for the Arts program, celebrating its 16th year, is an ongoing series of local art exhibits displayed at all The Provident Bank branch lobbies. The Bank receives no commissions for artwork sold, and pays all expenses associated with the exhibit. For more information please Anne Bonaventura, Amesbury Market Manager at 978-834-8540.
