263 Art Gallery presents :

"A Scottish Affair"

Jacqui Hawk, mixed media artist from Dunstable MA, is the featured artist for May at
263 Art Gallery located at 263 Main street in Nashua, NH.

The Public is invited to the Artist Reception on
Saturday, May 12 from 2 to 5 pm.

Jacqui will be showcasing some new artwork, inspired by her recent trip to her birthplace, Edinburgh, Scotland

Refreshments will be served.


Jacqui Hawk is a native of Edinburgh, Scotland and began her career in the arts over 20 years. Each of her paintings are emotional in nature and a metaphor for her  life’s journey, from Scottish origins, travels around the world, personal struggles and challenges. It embodies the magic and whimsical illusions of a child and the strength and wisdom of a woman with an old soul. Her work is intuitive in nature and very spontaneous and always reflects what is going on inside of her.

She works mainly in mixed media, including acrylics, oils, wax, pearlescent powders, gesso of different consistencies, stained glass pieces, decoupage, and unusual objects she finds washed up on the beach. Her recent works, inspired by her trip to Scotland and reunion with family brings her past into her future, reconnects her with her ancient ancestry and culture.  The Scottish pieces are vibrant, unique and capture a certain sense of mystery and love for her homeland.

March Exhibit at 263 Art Gallery

263 Art Gallery located in the Historical Victorian house at 263 Main St., Nashua, NH will host three talented artists during the month of March, 2012, namely

William C. Turner’s From Horses to Horsepower”,

Toni DeRuntz’s Romantic Realism vs. Abstract Expressionism”,

and Monika Roglic, fabric painter on women’s clothing.

The opening reception for the exhibit will be on Sat., Mar. 17th, from 2-5 p.m.

On March 17th, during the Art Opening, Mrs. Roglic will present a fashion show of her latest couture creations. Monika Roglic paints on silks and her designs are used on wedding gowns and formal dresses. The dresses will be modeled by Kelly and Elizabeth Scrima.

Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served and the Opening is free to the public.

All are invited

Toni DeRuntz was born in Palo Alto California and studied under Stephan Baumann, one of the top 100 Southwest artists in the U.S. She also studied under Alisa Miller, portraitist, and after having being included in shows including the top ten Marine artists in the U.S. Toni had a solo show in Monterey California. After moving to the East Coast she studied under Harriet Winchester and showed successfully in various art galleries on the east coast as well as other art galleries in the U.S. She has been included in juried shows at Museums in Fitchburg, Lowell and Andover. She was awarded the Golden Easel on October the 3d, 2001 by the Nashua Area Artist Association. She has had her artwork featured in articles in Newspapers and Magazines

William C Turner, received his BFA from NH Institute of Art, Manchester and was awarded national recognition for his paintings from the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylics, and Allied Artists of America, as well as many awards from regional exhibitions. His works are featured in an article in the Fall/Winter 2011 Monadnock Living Magazine.

His love of New England, and natural and mechanical “horsepower” have been a source of inspiration for him. As a life-long learner, Bill is currently exploring new and various techniques in rendering his art.

Monika Roglic, a Croatian-American artist, teacher and award winner psychology graduate, dedicates her life to painting the things she loves the most: the Mediterranean. She works with oils and acrylic, as well as watercolor on silk. Monika is a pianist so while she paints she listens to classical music. She is a published author(poetry), who keeps the tradition of her homeland alive in these turbulent 'global' times by taking photographs of the old world of Dalmatia. Monika had an exhibit at the Croatian Heritage foundation in 2010.

What makes her work unique is that she hand paints fabric-silk and then transforms the pieces of colorful art into a simple pattern that is wearable.

Student Art show in February

Student Art show at 263 Art gallery in Nashua
Kelly Scrima, young student at Hollis Brookline, organized a student Art Show at 263 Art Gallery during the Month of February.
The students involved are Kelly Scrima, Meagan Cahill, Dana Avard, Jen Turner, Eleni Philipon and Brock Green. The Opening will be on February 11 and all are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served
The idea of a student run and based art show that would allow high schoolers to display their Art in a professional setting, has been brewing around in Kelly Scrima's mind for quite some time. All of the artists are a part of the AP Studio Art program at Hollis-Brookline High School, under the direction of Lina Pepper. Kelly will be pursuing Art History in college next year (along with theatre), in the hopes of some day becoming a curator. She loves Museums, and she could spend all day in them. With this exhibit she wants to create an atmosphere that is enticing and thought-provoking.
263 Art Gallery is located in the beautiful Victorian building located at 263 Main street in Nashua, NH
For more information about the Opening, call the owner Pong Maynard at 603- 321 0233
10% of the sales will go to Charity and the money collected for Charity at the last exhibit will be given to the Humane Society during the new Opening.
