GAINES – The Cobblestone Museum held a reception this evening for artwork by Connie Mosher, an artist from Gaines. She is pictured with an oil painting, entitled, “Arizona Chapel.”
It is one of about 30 paintings on display at the Cobblestone Church on Route 104, just east of Route 98.
“I see something beautiful and I want to preserve it,” Mosher said during the reception. “I love to express what I’ve experienced.”
The collection of work will be on display during September during regular museum hours. (Click here for more on the museum.)
Many of Mosher’s paintings show local farms, including this one entitled, “Baling Straw.” Mosher lives on West Transit Church Road with her husband John, a retired professor from Brockport State College. They raised four kids out in the country. “The rural landscape is very beautiful.”
“Afternoon Practice” depicts a girl playing the piano.
These four paintings include (clockwise from top right): Early Spring on West Transit Church Road, Bridge Over The Erie Canal , The Wicker Chair, and Holley Waterfall.
“Strawberries for sale” is a painting at Chad and Alana Fabry’s in Holley, showing strawberries for sale on a wagon.
Mosher paints scenes from all seasons, including this one, “Spring is coming.”
