Artwork by Lisa Regopoulos on Display in Princeton

The artwork of Princeton Arts Society member, Lisa Regopoulos of Fitchburg, is currently on display at the Princeton Branch of the Barre Bank and Bagg Hall (Princeton’s Town Hall). The exhibit includes a wide selection of landscape, floral, and still life pastel paintings. In Lisa’s words, ”The pure pigment of pastel enables me to paint what I feel in an immediate way because the rich, vibrant colors do not lighten or darken.  I consider myself a colorist and use color in a bold, expressive way, seeing colors that are not necessarily there and enjoy heightening hues to lead the eye.“

One of the paintings on display, “Salem Street, North End,” is from her night time series of city scenes completed on Lacarte paper.  According to Lisa, “The drama and bold, contrasting colors of the night captivate me and enable me to translate the feeling of the scene to paper with the use of value contrast, mark making, color, and light.”  This work was awarded the Best in Show Award at the Pastel Painters of Maine’s, 13th Annual International Show last year.

In addition to the Princeton Arts Society, Lisa is also a member of the Gardner Area League of Artists (GALA), the Leominster Art Association, the Monadnock Artists Association, the Pastel Painters of Maine (Signature Member), and the Pastel Society of New Hampshire where she received the Jack Richeson Award at their 4th Annual National Show last year.

Please stop by the Princeton branch of the Barre Bank and Bagg Hall (Princeton Town Hall) during their normal business hours to view the exhibits which will be on display through the end of March.  Both originals works of art and giclee prints are on display and available for sale.

Call to Artists: Community Arts Festival March 14, 2013!

Please join us as a participating artist at the Eighth Annual Community Arts Festival, to be held Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Thomas Prince School in Princeton. We welcome community artists because they set a great example for students of lifelong creativity and commitment to the arts.

This year our theme is Recycling, although artists need not bring work that relates to the theme. We’re planning a wonderful evening of participatory events, interdisciplinary exhibits, a recycled fashion show, choral and band performances, and much more.

The Festival is a lively event, with adults and children roaming the school, looking at displays, and talking to the attending artists. It is very informal and fun, does not cost anything, and is not a fund-raiser, although it is supported in part by the TPS PTA.

We can provide table or floor space for whatever work you would like to display, and an identifying placard. If you reserve table space, please plan to arrive by 4:30 and be available to talk about your work between 5:30 and 7:30 pm. You are also free to offer your work for sale if you like. Real refreshments (not just cookies!) will be available for all.

The Arts Festival was developed to celebrate the creative efforts of students at Thomas Prince School and artists of the wider Wachusett community. Each year, we display artwork and written work by TPS students, and invite local artists, writers, and musicians to display and demonstrate their own work to the students and community members who attend.

If you’d like to be a part of this delightful community event, please call me at (978) 464-2973 or email me at Please get in touch on or before February 15, 2013.
