Roxbury artist and teacher Peter Frisbie will present his beautiful, imaginative watercolor paintings in “The Artist’s Dance.”
The exhibit features two separate collections of Mr. Frisbie’s work: 27 large paintings representing his current direction and 12 small paintings that he did during his teaching career as suggestions to his students on the use of various media.
Throughout his 40-year career as a teacher, the artist continued to paint scenes, both real and imagined, of his native New England. Now in retirement, as a gesture of thanks to the communities he served, he is sharing his impressions and donating a portion of all sales to the Ken Cornet Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Minor Memorial, UCONN and the Mattatuck Museum are only a few of the venues that have shown Mr. Frisbie’s work. Litchfield County Times writer, Alistair Highet, described Mr. Frisbie’s work as being “done in a genial style that could almost be called primitive…(with) attention to a child’s liking for bright colors and simple human gestures.”
