Wheeler is featured artist at Anna Jaques

Local photographer Lindsay Wheeler will hang an exhibit of her nature photography called “Get Outside” in the front lobby and hallway at Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport.

Her photography show will run from next Thursday through Nov. 29.

“My late-grandmother Constance Blaisdell and I spent a lot of time together, from walking around the property, smooshing our bare feet in the spongy moss and picking the latest vegetables that grew in her garden,” Wheeler wrote in an e-mail. “When we weren’t busy doing that, we took pictures with her Nikon FG film camera for hours.”

The Vermont native majored in art education. While in college, Wheeler participated in a grant-funded group photography collaboration between the college and a Vermont community care center called In Other Words, where participants spent time with the center’s residents and taking photos. The pieces were used in a traveling exhibit to Vermont hospitals and art galleries.

The hospital’s monthly art shows are a fundraiser for the Anna Jaques Aid Association.

Johnson explores ‘Plum Island to Paris’

Visitors to the Newburyport Art Association can see a solo show by Amesbury artist Christine Molitor Johnson through Nov. 2.

The former Newburyport teacher introduces the audience to two of her favorite destinations — Plum Island and Paris — through her oil landscapes.

Johnson, a Newburyport native, has always been drawn to the sand and surf of Plum Island, she says, and one of her favorite spots to paint is on Sandy Point, at the end of Plum Island. Five years ago, Johnson took her first trip to Paris and immediately fell in love, she says. She returned last October with her husband to revisit the city.
