"People on Parade": Drawings in the Image Gallery

DISCLAIMER: this post is older than one year and may not be up to date.

“People On Parade,” an exhibit of drawings by Hudson artist Margaret Femia, is on display in the Image Gallery at the Nashua Public Library through the end of May.

Femia uses graphite pencils to draw everyday people she encounters on the subway, on her travels, and at libraries and cafes.

“I observe the details of a person’s posture, hair, the placement of hands, the shape of a foot or shoe,” says Femia. “Other details, like the way clothing falls and folds on bodies or the tilt of a head, also capture the spirit of the moment.”

The exhibit may be viewed during normal library hours.
