Alumna Paintings Reflect Garden Treasures

An exhibition of nature photography and oil paintings by Patricia Czepiel Hayes '84 has been extended through October in the Alumnae House Gallery. The exhibition features paintings and photographs inspired by cultivated plants growing close to the artist's home in nearby Hadley, Mass. Intentionally contrasting soft and sharp focus, she searches for abstract photographic compositions that appeal to her sense of design, and then carries the images further into abstraction through her oil paintings.
