Watercolors of New England: A Retrospective

April 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Opening Reception
Thursday, April 13
Open to the Public

Carol M. Sullivan drew inspiration for her numerous watercolors of rural New England from the contrast and tension between the breaking of waves along the coast of Maine and the tranquility of local rivers, including the North River on which she lived in the last decades of her life.  Her work deals as much with absence as with presence as she employed the blank canvas itself to represent sprays of seawater or clouds in an overcast sky.

Largely self-taught, Carol received training and inspiration from her peers, including Marshall Joyce, Elaine Wentworth and Joanne Papendrea.  She was also a frequent award-winner in juried art exhibits throughout the South Shore.

Carol M. Sullivan’s works titled Watercolors of New England will hang from March 29 through April 30 at the South Shore Natural Science Center’s Vine Hall Gallery, 48 Jacobs Lane, Norwell, MA 02061. The Gallery is open to the public and free of charge Monday – Saturday 9am – 5pm, Sunday 11am – 4pm.  The hours of an opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Science Center. The public is welcome.


Vine Hall is a multi-purpose space.  Please call ahead for viewing availability.  For more information, please visit www.ssnsc.org or call 781.659.2559.
