PRESS RELEASE: Mary Byrom at Galleria Fine Arte in Stowe

From December 9, 2011 - January 11, 2012 Galleria Fine Arte' is pleased to present Mary Byrom's Day & Night: the Moods of Nature. a collection of new paintings of peaceful, luminous landscapes of New England in daytime, afternoon, dusk and night light.

Mary Byrom, well known for her sensitive, elegant interpretations of wild, beautiful places, can be found any the day of the week painting in the great outdoors. Her true love is painting in nature, capturing fleeting moments of light and beauty. She paints outdoors in every season, capturing plein air paintings of the landscape that are brought back to the studio where they become the inspiration for her large landscape paintings.

"New England is a beautiful area with rich subject matter. I paint ocean along the seacoast of Maine, mountains in New Hampshire and Vermont and lovely old farms in the Berkshires and along the river valleys in the Green Mountains. I've been wandering and painting in this region for several years and still have not seen all of its treasures," says the artist.
