Our featured artists for the month of February are the members of the South Shore Artist Group, made up of Jeanette Eddy Lindros, Patricia Lindros-Kruskall, and Julie Thorniley.
Inspired by the seascapes of the South Shore and incredible natural scenery around us, the trio use paint to create artwork on canvas and other mediums. Please find a brief biography for each artist listed below.
Jeanette Eddy Lindros
Jeanette has always been an artist. Whether she was making clothing for her five children, decorating cakes for her family, or making flower arrangements to enjoy, she always had a love of the arts. After painting with oils for 40-plus years and while her style has changed over the years, her love of painting remains with her at ninety-eight years of age.
Jeanette was a potter for many years as well. Family members and friends all have beautiful pieces created by her as well as at least one painting (if not more) hanging on their walls.
Born and raised in Kingston, the Eddy family have been here a long, long time. Jeanette graduated from high school, worked locally, and then married William Lindros. They had five children together and were married until "Captain Bill" passed away in 2013. She finds great enjoyment in her family, painting, and knitting.
Patti was born and raised in the Plymouth/Kingston area and has been painting for about fifteen years. It has become a hobby that she enjoys and likes to share with others.
Patti’s mother introduced her to oil painting as a young person, but she never took the time to pursue it. Now in her senior years, she finds great joy in blending various colors and seeing where they take her.
Taking classes and learning new techniques from different artists adds to the variety of her paintings. There is never a shortage of beautiful scenery here in New England to select.
Julie's artistic journey began twenty years ago, driven by her deep admiration for painting. After settling in Boston, she discovered her true passion through a friend's art classes. Since then, she has been captivated by the beauty of nature, constantly envisioning how to immortalize it on canvas. She invites us to join her as she embarks on this colorful adventure, capturing the world's wonders one brushstroke at a time.
The exhibit will be on view in the Library's gallery throughout February. The Kingston Public Library is open Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
