Lori Racicot will be demonstrating her painting techniques following a brief business meeting in the former Ceramics Room at the Newington Senior and Disabled Center on Wednesday, May 11 at 6:30 pm. These meetings are free and open to the public.
Lori Racicot-Burrous’s award-winning work – landscapes, animals, still lifes and abstracts – has been in numerous solo and juried group shows, printed in national art magazines and is represented in collections nationwide.
The first painting in Lori’s abstract series, “Where the Hell Did My Memory Go?” based on her experiences creating artwork with individuals in residential nursing/memory care facilities and as a caregiver, for her father with dementia, was featured on the cover of the University of Michigan’s Fall 2018 literary magazine, the Michigan Quarterly Review, a special issue on caregiving.
In addition to painting, Lori enjoys teaching others how to paint. Lori is a member of Simsbury Open Studios, Avon Art Association, the Woman Artist Collective, and an elected member of the West Hartford Art League.
