Beth Pite’s collection of 22 “expressive colorscapes in pastel” is the March exhibit at Capital Community College’s Conrad L. Mallett Gallery located at the main entrance to the downtown campus.
“The (Not so) Old Woman and the Sea” exhibit features landscapes near water, including many in the Connecticut and Long Island areas.
“I’ve realized lately that many of my paintings are about being near the water, which relaxes me and inspires my creativity,” says Pipe.
