MacMaster’s work to appear at ArtHub

NASHUA – Jesse MacMaster will exhibit a collection of watercolor paintings at the ArtHub Gallery in October.

A reception is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 12. The reception is free and open to the public.

MacMaster has been living in Nashua for 15 years with her musician husband and their 13-year-old daughter. She is currently in her eighth year teaching full-time elementary art in Derry. She has been involved in the arts for as long as she can remember, growing up dancing in Wilton, and then narrowing her focus to the visual arts when she was in high school. She attended Bradford College in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and the University of Prince Edward Island in Charlottetown, PEI, Canada, receiving her B.A. in creative arts, and then later her M.Ed. at Rivier College.

Her love of color can be found in nearly all her work. This collection began as a portrait challenge at the beginning of the year. This soon evolved into experimenting with the way color changes and affects emotions and mood, becoming like a mask or veil.

MacMaster is a member of the Nashua Area Artist Association. Her work has been exhibited at The ArtHub, City Hall and several other local coffee shops. When not teaching, she can be found working in her sketchbook, crocheting, reading, relaxing with family and spending as much time as possible outside biking and running.

The Nashua Area Artist’s Association is a nonprofit organization with a gallery, The ArtHub, located at 30 Temple St. in Nashua. It is open Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Fridays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is free to the public and handicap accessible.
