Sr. Marjorie Raphael's paintings at Duxbury's Bumpus Gallery

The Duxbury paper just did a nice article on Sr. Marjorie Raphael's paintings! The journalist says,

I stopped by the Helen Bumpus Gallery in Duxbury Saturday and was treated to a refreshing getaway in Sr. Marjorie Raphael's landscape paintings.'

The oils, most with very reasonable prices of $200, will be exhibited at
Helen Bumpus Gallery through Tuesday, Feb. 28. There will be a "Meeting the Artist" reception on Saturday, Jan. 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. The exhbit is titled "Under the Skies: Four Seasons."

I've always loved her work, and I've been fortunate to live with her paintings surrounding me, both at the Boston convent and here in Haiti.  Several of her paintings which made it through the earthquake are now hanging in the house we are renting until such time as the convent is rebuilt.  They make me feel at home.

If you are in the greater Boston area, I invite you to check out this exhibit and, better yet, to go to the reception to meet her.  It will be well worth your time.  She's a very interesting person as well as a fine artist. 

Bonus: You can ask her about Haiti, where she spent 34 years.
