Art Opening Reception @ the BFL: Samantha Eio
October 1 at 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Join us at the Bacon Free Library for an art opening reception in honor of local landscape artist Samantha Eio, whose painting series, In Nature, will be featured at the BFL from September 28th – January 4th.
Samantha Eio is a self-taught landscape artist who works in acrylic and watercolor paint. She enjoys the challenge of capturing the space or feeling of a place through drawing and painting. She is inspired by the natural world — forests, trails, the sky, the ocean, sunlight, and shadows. Samantha is also moved by the dichotomy of the fast-paced world we live in and the struggle to find peace and stillness within. She works to portray this in creating a sense of movement with her brushstrokes and lines, along with a sense of calm through her choice of subject, paint colors, and tones. Her paintings feature meaningful locations from throughout New England, many from right here in Natick. She hopes artwork makes you, the viewer or collector, want to get outdoors and to explore.
Samantha is originally from Northern New Jersey. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Syracuse University, and draws on her architectural background often for her artwork. She is a member of the Natick Art Association, the Dedham Art Association, and the Wellesley Society of Artists. Her work has been exhibited locally, and her painting “To Venture On” will soon be part of the permanent collection at PNC Bank at Dedham Legacy Place. Samantha resides in Natick with her family. She also enjoys trail running, playing the piano, and listening to way too many audiobooks.
This reception is free and open to the public.
