Carole Groenke Open House at the Gallery Space

LACONIA — The Gallery Space located on Canal Street in Downtown Laconia is proud to host a Meet the Artist Reception for exhibiting print maker, Carole Groenke, on Tuesday October 29 from 4-6 p.m.

Carole's exhibition entitled Apple-A-Day-Art consists of twelve color as well as black and white prints created on a quality of life theme. Her work revolves around nature as an inspiration to making art part of your everyday life. As a member of the Women's Caucus for Art-NH, juried member of the Squam Lakes Artisans, Artist Cooperative, and member artist of the Gallery Space, Carole is an energetic source of creative energy.

"I'm always looking for people and places to inspire my imagination and my art," said the artist. She added, "Finding creative sources like the Studio, the Frates Center, and Plymouth State University have helped me to realize that my resources are have been around me all the time."
As a world traveler, Carole, is planning her reception around her recent cycling trip through Tuscany. Carole will have some Tuscan inspired refreshments at the reception for visitors to munch on as well as her colorfully inspiring prints for visitors to enjoy.

A special part of the Reception will be a a one day opportunity for the public to make a difference by receiving one of two prints created in support of the Anderson Pharmacy Fund established in 2000 by Jerry & Lynn Anderson. During Lynn's chemotherapy treatment these two pioneers established a fund to support oncology patients at LRGH who were struggling financially. Carole is also a concerned member of the Lakes Region who inspires others through her art and her concern for others in the community.

She concluded that "I have found that working with other artists have grounded me with the techniques that I use in my artwork and exhibition opportunities such as this one help to keep me grounded to my work."
