ROCHESTER - The Franklin Gallery at RiverStones Custom Framing will host an exhibit during the month of April called "Earth Dreams," featuring the work of Rollinsford artist Taintor Davis Child.
There will be no opening reception due to RCF's concern for the safety of its visitors, but anyone may stop by and see the current exhibit during regular RCF business hours.
"Earth Dreams is a large and growing collection of paintings. The ones exhibited here at The Franklin Gallery are arrivals over this past year," says Child. "They are meditations on elements of nature (Air, Earth, Fire, Water, Ether) expressed while employing the elements of art (Line, Color, Form, Shape, Space, Texture)."
Child currently heralds from Rollinsford and spends much of her time exploring and reflecting on the nature and changes of the local Salmon Falls riverscape. This land and water she loves today was once known as the Newichawannock River (home to the Newichawannock people - a sub tribe of the Abenaki - who lived and thrived here).
Taintor has European roots in the early settlers of New England.
"I have been working through the deeper conflicts and dualities of my human legacy and personal experiences" she says, "while making art, looking at art, and tasting art along with delighting in birdsongs, observing flight patterns, and cherishing the dance of trees and sky."
She graduated from Clark University and the Worcester Art Museum's Fine Art Diploma Program and received her B.A. from Lesley University in a self-designed program integrating Creative Arts, Environmental Studies, and Early Childhood Education.
RiverStones Custom Framing and the Franklin Gallery at 33 N. Main Street in Rochester, are open Wednesday through Friday, 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. For information about Taintor Davis Child's April exhibit and other RiverStones events and services, call Kris or Tom at 603-812-1488 or visit the RiverStones website or Facebook page.
