“How I See It,” an exhibit and sale of beautiful oil paintings by Rick Daskam, will open with a reception at the Minor Memorial Library, 23 South Street, Roxbury, on Saturday, November 7, 2015 from 2 pm to 4 pm. The reception is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served. The library is handicapped-accessible. Call the library at (860) 350-2181 for information and directions. Rick Daskam’s work reflects his passion for plein air painting and he has captured the striking colors and shapes of the landscapes near his home in Southbury and on Monhegan Island, Maine, where he paints from “sun up to sun down” for a week every year. Winner of numerous juried awards, including The Collectors Award from the Butler Museum of American Art and the Claude Parsons Memorial Award for Landscape from the American Artists Professional League, Daskam strives to express feelings in his art by simplifying his subject and focusing on the larger, meaningful shapes.
