Grace McGinnis: Grace grew up in the Mount Hope Bay region of southern MA, on a dairy farm. During high
school, she was fortunate to be selected to attend a Saturday semester-long program at the
Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Grace received a B.S. from Drexel University in clothing design
and pattern. She was employed in the industry until the birth of three children and then
volunteering kept her busy. Later Grace was employed in social services until retirement. About
the year 2000, art called again. She studied with various local artists and has shown her work in
NH. MA. and R.I. She taught at the Rise Program at Rivier University and teaches private
lessons to individuals with cognitive disorders.
Laureen Luszcz: Since her first introduction to the pastel medium, Laureen has enthusiastically pursued her
passion for creating colorful and peaceful landscapes. Although her favorite subjects are coastal
and natural scenes, she has expanded her interests to include still life, buildings, abstracts,
drawing from life and portraits.
She is taking a new look at her art and experimenting with blending many different mediums to
create new exciting art. She starts with something familiar and then adds shadow, light, colors,
etc. expressing her visions in her art.
Laureen has exhibited her artwork at the MCC Student Art and Design Juried Show, at the
Lowell Telecommunications Corp.- (LTC); The Wakefield Fine Art Show, 100th Anniversary-
Wakefield Civic Center, Wakefield Cooperative Bank, sponsored by the Wakefield Chamber of
Commerce; First Congregational Church, sponsored by the Reading Art Association, the Nashua
and Nevins Memorial Libraries, and the Hollis Art Society. Laureen has been awarded special
recognition in several juried art show in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
