The Westfield Athenaeum is pleased to feature the work of Q Holmes for the month of November 2015 in the Jasper Rand Art Museum during regular library hours: Monday-Thursday 8:30-8:00pm and Friday and Saturday 8:30-5:00pm.
Born in China, Q was trained in Both China and Japan. Q's art has evolved from her exposure in the East and life in Western Mass. Her inherited traditions reach back in time to vistas of misty mountains and glimpses of rain-soaked lotuses. Yet, her New England years have infused her with a second nature of maple-lined roads, lichened stone walls and weathered barns. Now she is further on her path of Zen and Tao (Taoism). Her lines get simpler and strokes more expressive The media are mineral color, rice paper or canvas. Her work has been acquired by the New Hampshire Institute of Art and acquired and used by WGBY/Discovery channel sponsorship presentations. Her galleries include Sharon Fine Arts, Peterborough NH, Salmon Falls Artisan's Showroom, Shelburne Falls, MA, and Mermelstein, Amherst, MA. She has given seminars at the Art Museum of Smith College.
