Library to open Scofield show

The Stairwell Gallery at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington will open a new collection of New England landscape by Heather Scofield with a reception July 29 from noon to 2 p.m.

The show will run through Sept. 9.

Scofield’s paintings have been described as kinetic and bold, vibrating with color and movement.

Even though Scofield grew up in an urban/suburban setting near Cleveland, Ohio, her paintings are mostly of rural areas in Connecticut and Maine, where she has lived for 20 years.

The Wykeham Road library is open Mondays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For more information, call 860-868-7586.
