CAROL LUMMUS ART
Carol having over twenty-five solo exhibits and artworks in collections around the country; brings to us her wonderful combination of meticulous printmaking expertise and literary wit, resulting in a humorous and unique visual delight.
When Carol is asked to set down her thoughts in words about her work, she struggles: "It IS there... in the prints." And so her artist's statement exists, in almost 300 editions she has produced since 1974 when she purchased her first etching press, and dipped her first copper plate into a Dutch Mordant bath.

Linda Saunders Photography
I am a very fortunate person as I live on Cape Cod and journey over to Nantucket often. It is a great place for the most beautiful photography! I also like to give my photos an artistic touch. So, although not original art, it gives the feel of it. My profession was as a Legal Assistant which kept me behind a desk all day five days a week. I am now semi-retired, with my own business, which allows me to journey to all parts of Cape Cod and Nantucket for all seasons, which I love.
