Petrea Noyes of Brooks, who currently is sharing a show with Lynne Joddrell Baggett at the Harlow Gallery, 160 Water St., will present an artists talk with Baggett Thursday, April 8 at 7 p.m.

“Eternal Whispers,” an exhibition of paintings by Noyes and relief carvings by Baggett, is on view at the Harlow Gallery through April 24. The artists will discuss their work in this exhibit, which captures both artists’ connections to their past by evoking memories that are communicated through photo-based artwork and letterforms.

Noyes’s paintings are mixed-media creations, from acrylic to encaustic, which explore concepts of family, memory and constructed narrative. The works in this series were originally inspired by photographs in a 100-year old family album inherited from her Norwegian grandmother.

Baggett’s cast gypsum and hand-carved reliefs are inspired by early hand-carved letterforms found on gravestones in Maine coastal cemeteries and the British Isles. Baggett is a summer resident of Steuben.

Exhibitions at the Harlow Gallery are always free and open to the public. A donation of $3 is suggested for the talk to support arts programming at the gallery.
