David Griffin – Photographer
“Maynard Town Clock” / Ink Jet Print
Dave Griffinʼs parents gave him his first camera at age 9 and he has been photographing the world around him ever since. He considers himself a storyteller who uses visual imagery, sound, and the written word to connect people to the water, landscape, and animals which surround us. An avid kayaker, he has spent the past 10 years photographing the Assabet River and its tributaries. Dave practices “conservation photography” - a photojournalistic ethic which strives to retain a level of authenticity by never altering the essential content of the images.
Linda Grom – Painter
Untitled 3 / Acrylic on Board
After many years as a music educator Linda Grom began to compose music. Several works were published, including choral works set to the poems of Ralph Waldo Emerson. The creative awakening of composing led her to a desire to paint. She attended classes and studied privately at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, the Provincetown Museum School and the DeCordova Museum School and developed an intense passion for painting. Her paintings are a transfer of her emotions, an interconnectedness with the energies that exist within all aspects of life and forces of nature. Painting and composing music are extensions of her deep emotions, which create a tremendous thrust of energy from within. She enjoys painting outside where she can paint with her entire body in an unrestricted space, where the wind, sunlight and sounds of nature influence where the paint settles on the surface, and where sounds and rhythms in her head and heart coincide with the colors, textures and movement of the paint. The painting evolves through all these energies naturally, without premeditation.

Edward Hastings – Painter
“Pemaquid Harbor, ME” / Watercolor
Edward Hastings grew up in Concord, MA and the surrounding towns. Art in some shape or form has always been a part of the Hastings family. As a child Edward dabbled in pastels and oil, but found watercolors were the most rewarding. He has vacationed in the Pemaquid, Maine area for the past 40 years. He has always been inspired by the beauty there, from the rocks the Pemaquid light is perched upon, to the spectacular sunsets on Johnʼs Bay. It has been the subject of many of his paintings. Edward and his wife Theresa lived in western MA for five years which is the inspiration for some of his most recent work. He now resides in Maynard, MA.
