Diane Nevinsmith, who lives in Hadley, Mass., created the artwork on this week's cover and has work on display at the Kent Memorial Library in Suffield through June 27. She studied painting and printmaking at Syracuse University, receiving her bachelor of fine arts in 1978. Her artistic career has spanned studies and works in oils, stained glass, paper making and marbling and, more recently, watercolors. Her paintings are largely landscapes with a generous sprinkling of floral, still life and travelogues. She has taught classes in stained glass and relief printmaking techniques and was the artistic consultant for Rubber Tree Stamps from 1997 until 2005. She is a member of the Deerfield Valley Art Association and the Tobacco Valley Artists Association. Her work can be seen by appointment at her studio in Hadley or at www.dianenevinsmithart.com.
