PORTSMOUTH – New Hampshire Art Association artists Tom Bailey will have a show titled, “Outside/In,” during the month of June at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery.
Bailey describes his style of painting as “Inadvertently Impressionist." He paints primarily in pastels and oils and is known for his vibrant textures and bold mark making.
“All my paintings start at places I’ve actually been,” Bailey said. “Where they take me from there, however – or where I take them – is always an unplanned adventure.”
Bailey is a full-time artist with studios in Amesbury, Massachusetts. He is a juried artist member and regularly exhibits with a wide range of regional and national arts organizations. He is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, Connecticut Pastel Society and the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod.

PORTSMOUTH – New Hampshire Art Association artist Thomas Bianchi of Londonderry will have a showing of his pyrography (wood burning) art, titled “Rustic America,” during the month of June at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery.
Bianchi uses this technique to create pieces of old barns, covered bridges, gristmills, maple sugar houses and other rustic subjects.
"My satisfaction is for every piece done, that the onlooker wishes they were there," Bianchi said of his work.
Bianchi studied art at the (now closed) Vesper George School of Art in Boston. A retired engineer, he has been doing pyrography since 2012.
