Husson University’s Robert E. White Gallery presents an exhibit featuring Maine artists Erica Qualey and Mary Boothby through January 3, 2013. The artists have combined their work into an exhibit that is inspired by the beauty of Maine.

Qualey’s work features both watercolor and watercolor batik on rice paper. Landscapes are her main subject inspired by her love of travel, nature, and being outdoors. She started doing this because she felt that people often don’t stop and look around them and see the beauty they live in.

Boothby enjoys experimenting with all different types of printmaking but comes back to the process of mezzotint and drypoint. “I spend crazy amounts of time contemplating what I want to do in a print, but I have found that I always go back to the same thing. No matter how much I plan or use other subject matter I cannot stay away from trees, plants and self-portraits or the combination of them.”

The White Gallery is located in the Student Center, first floor of Peabody Hall and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
