Artistic Roots will introduce four new member artists who have joined he Co-operative Art Gallery over the past few months.

Cari Ordway is a jeweler who specializes in bead woven pieces. "I have been beading for 10 years, but I have also recently began working in precious metal clay and silversmithing.'' says Ordway.

The gallery also celebrates Carole Halsey Keller, an extremely accomplished oil painter.
Donna Waeger of Groton also joined the gallery this summer as a fiber artist. Donna knits lovely sweaters and scarves and is co-leading a Sunday afternoon knitting group at Artistic Roots.

The most recent addition to the talented group is Ken Hamilton, recently of Plymouth. Hamilton launched his photographic career in a darkroom working for a large print company in Flagstaff, AZ. It was there that he developed his creative appetite for a diverse subject matter.

"We are also pleased to have several visiting artists who have joined us beginning this month and displaying their work for sale through January," says Lynn Haust, current President of Artistic Roots.

Visiting artists to be featured include Andrew Thompson, gifted wildlife photographer from Wonalancet. Andrew owns Wild Light Images and
visitors to Artistic Roots are sure to be impressed with his vivid images of many of New England's beloved animal residents.
Another guest artist is potter Sue Henke. Her handmade cups, bowls and saucers have already caused much excitement among shoppers, with the vivid glaze colors being a common comment.

Nancy Conklin also joins the group and adds dimension and beauty with her fabulous quilting. She offers a diverse grouping of precision work ranging from small wall art and table runners to full size quilts. Shoppers are sure to be enthralled with the charming hand-woven baskets and whimsical gourds of Jane Darling of Canaan.
According to Debbie Johnson, Coordinator of the Visiting Artist Program,"Jane does something new that we have never been able to offer at Artistic Roots and we are so excited about her work!" Rounding out the Visiting Artist's display is oil painter Mary Walker, of New Hampton. Walker is a modern impressionist and award-winning painter who enjoys the challenge of capturing a moment in time while exploring the colors and textures within her view. Much of her inspiration comes from discovering intimate scenes while walking the back roads and beaches of New England.
