Taneytown artist featured in display in Frederick
Laurie Martinson, who travels the countryside in her capacity as a visiting nurse, doesn't waste time between patients.
Instead, she's gathering material for her next painting.
The Taneytown native -- who will be the featured artist for November at the Weinberg Center, East Market Street, in Frederick -- uses the time as she travels to note the small towns, farms and houses that eventually make their way into her paintings that chronicle rural life.
The show, which include many original works as well as selected limited edition signed and numbered reproductions, will be displayed 10 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays starting Nov. 4 to Nov. 30. A reception will be held 2 to 5 p.m. Nov. 7.
She studied art at Montgomery College and won first place in the Frederick Art Association's 1992 show for her watercolor "Spring."
