BERLIN — There’s a new art show hanging on the wall in the Androscoggin Valley Hospital Cafeteria. It will be up until Monday, July 17, courtesy of the hospital rotating art program.
Artist O’Brien R. Murphy is known for his work throughout the North Country. He has been featured and acclaimed for his acrylic on canvas paintings and his pastel drawings at a number of galleries and exhibitions. Best known for his landscapes in a neo-impressionist style, this show gives the viewer renditions of the four seasons. The centerpiece for this display is a triptych of white birches, showcasing the yellows of the North Country autumn. Those who have skied at Wildcat Mountain will recognize the winter scenes, and, of course, there are the spring and summer sun and water renditions of January.
Murphy is a life-long area art educator and currently is an instructor at White Mountain Community College. He works on location and from his studio in Gorham. His works are in private, public and corporate collections throughout the United States.
The public is encouraged to stop by the hospital cafeteria to view the show, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and weekends, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
