Art Exhibit: Watercolors Old and New, Near and Far by Betsy Janeway
McLane Center’s PSNH Room
Opening Reception: Tuesday, March 4, 5-7pm
Betsy Janeway is honored to be part of NH Audubon’s Centennial Celebration by showcasing her watercolor landscapes. Painting outdoors at places she knows and loves, and on her travels, she is not searching for perfection in her work as much as to capture a memory in mood, light and colors. She has painted at most of the NH Audubon sanctuaries. Betsy has had a long history with NH Audubon as a volunteer, serving on committees and the Board of Trustees, and helping with the NH Breeding Bird Atlas. A birdwatcher since she was nine, she lives in Webster with her husband, Harold, on an old farm where birds and wildlife flourish, sheep graze the pastures, swimming is good in the Blackwater River, and meals come fresh from her garden.

Brian Reilly Photo Exhibit
McLane Center’s PSNH Room
Opening Reception: Tuesday May 6, 5-7 pm
The Monadnock region contains many small ponds and lakes, and Brian was initially drawn to photograph water birds when he discovered a passion for common loons. By using binoculars and telephoto lenses, Brian is able to watch every aspect of the birds’
lives while remaining at a respectful distance. Brian’s observational and reporting skills and sensitive, technically improving photos of loons and the world in which they live and breed have made him a valued asset for the Loon Preservation Committee, for whom he currently serves as a volunteer and trustee.
