October Featured Artist at the AFL

On the Wall: Jane Ostlund

“Having tried many art mediums, the one which caught my passion is watercolor with a secondary interest in pastels. I enjoy traveling the coast of New England searching for lighthouses. Watching kids at play also inspires me to pick up my brushes. How shadows play on buildings in the morning and evening light is fascinating. Looking at the world through a painter’s eye is a joy!!”

Jane Ostlund, a resident of Easton for many years, recently relocated to Bridgewater.

In the Case: Mary Hunter - Framed art made on Cape Cod with love. 

“Sea glass is one of Mother Nature’s simplest yet most alluring treasures. Wanting to showcase and share my collection of these gifts from the sea I began Sea Glass Originals by Mary. These treasures inspired my heart to create art using hand-picked, unaltered sea glass. The shell placed in the corner of each frame is my signature. My hope is that my artwork brings you joy, the beauty and serenity of the ocean, and a taste of the beach I so love.”

Mary Hunter is a local artist and resident of Easton for twenty years.
