CENTER SANDWICH — Sunday evening, August 3, Tammra Sigler will open her exhibit of monotypes created while listening to Yo-Yo Ma playing Bach's unaccompanied suites for cello. Each monotype is worked to specific piece and is titled as such. Cellist, Matthew Laughlin of the Concord Community School of Music will play a selection of Bach's suites at the opening reception that will begin at 5 p.m.
Artist talk is at 6 p.m. Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery is located at 69 Maple Street in Center Sandwich. For more information visit our website at www.patricialaddcarega.com or call 284 7728.
Tammra Sigler is an abstract painter and a mark maker. She is interested in letting her marks "create their own journey" on the canvas. In her words " I play and talk to the canvas with my brush. It speaks back. If I listen carefully, I learn what my paintings are about. I am always amazed at their truth." Regarding her monotypes she writes: " I believe the essence of monoprinting is the delicate balance between accident and control...the push and pull between giving up control to discover the accident, and retaining control for the intelligence of the print.....color, light, edge, and the mark, are exaggerated and magnified in monoprinting." The Bach monotypes adhere to Sigler's vision and offer the viewer a lively interaction with color, mark and music.
Gallery hours are from 10 to 5, Monday through Saturday and from 12 to 5 on Sunday.

MEREDITH — Author Brenda Reeves Sturgis will celebrate her newly-released picture book, "The Lake Where the Loon Lives," with a book signing, on Saturday, Aug. 2, from 2 to 4 p.m., at Innisfree Bookshop in the Mill Falls Marketplace in Meredith.
The event is free and open to the public.
In "The Lake Where Loon Lives," the day starts quietly, but the cumulative story builds, one line at a time, to a wacky, wonderful, and splashy crescendo, as the loons are joined by a playful fly, a slippery fish, and a curious boy on the dock.
Sturgis is the author of "10 Turkeys in the Road" and "No Fun in the Sun for Santa." She and her husband, Gary, live on a little lake in Shapleigh, Maine, where she listens to loons wail and watches an occasional moose meander across her back yard.
