Artist Byron Carr of Contoocook, NH, has generously donated to the CLC two gorgeous framed oil paintings of the Chocorua Lake Basin, with Mount Chocorua in the background. The first (16x20) will be on display and sale at the Art Works Summer Art Show July 26-28, with proceeds to go to the CLC, and we will be auctioning the second, larger painting (24x30) online. Click here to access the online auction, which runs through August 17, the date of the CLC Annual Meeting. Please bid generously—all proceeds go to support the mission of the CLC.
Byron, born and raised in Contoocook, is an award-winning lifelong artist who has been showing his work since the early ‘90s. Many of Byron's paintings are done in the style of the Hudson River School. Three of his paintings are currently on display at the Jackson Historical Society. To see more of Byron’s work and learn more about him, please visit Wet Paint Tamworth and the Covered Bridge Gallery. He was inspired to donate these two paintings by his love of the Chocorua Lake Basin and his appreciation of the CLC’s work protecting and preserving it. Thank you, Byron, for this wonderful gift!
