Artist of the Month September 2023

Molly Stark

This month's Artist of the Month is Holderness resident, Molly Stark. Her interest in art led her to the Art Department of the University of New Hampshire, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree, graduating with high honors. 

Like her ancestors, Molly has a strong sense of convition and independence, as well as a love for the land. She feels that you must be true to yourself even if it means swimming against the tide. 

Her artwork reflects her deep appreciation for nature, particularly the quiet beauty of the hidden spots of New England. Her realistic works reflect organic, textural, peaceful scenes. Her versatility becomes apparent in her paintings, which cross back and forth from realist to abstract. Regardless of the avenue she chooses, her themes remain true to nature. 

Her abstracts are done in many layers of inks and acrylics, building texture and allowing underlying images to shine through. Molly's abstracts are also unique and exciting in their departure from the ordinary, and although there exists a remarkable freedom and flow, there is continuity in their impressions. The artist, with tongue in cheek, describes her works as organic abstracts, and welcomes visitors to her studio by appointment.
