Luci Lesmerises

An artist for over 35 years, I attended classes at the New Hampshire Institute of Art and have studied under the tutelage of a number of local artists. I am a member of the New Hampshire Art Assoc., Monadnock Area Artist Assoc., Nashua Area Artist Assoc., and the Center for the Arts. I was an oil painting instructor for Bedford Parks and Recreation for 5 years and now teach in my studio in Bedford, NH. Oils is my preferred medium. My artwork has been recognized over the years with a number of awards and publications. Some of which to include: First and Third place in the Greeley Park Art Show; Second Place in the NH American Mother’s Inc. National Art Competition; and First Place, Best in Show for my painting at the Sidewalk Art Festival in Portland, ME. Families First, Artist of the Seacoast selected my artwork for their Artists of the Seacoast calendar. I was a featured artist in the Bedford Journal and Bedford Bulletin publications. Also, an image of one of my paintings was published in the “Art of Motherhood” book of short stories by Covenant Communications, Inc. My work has been exhibited at the Robert L. Levy Gallery and The Children’s Museum in Portsmouth, NH; Sunapee Fair, League of NH Craftsmen and The Fells Historic Estate and Gardens in Newbury, NH; East Colony Fine Art Gallery in Manchester, NH; The Nuance Gallery in Windsor, VT; and the Center for the Arts Micro Gallery at the New London Inn. Most recently, in 2019, I was one of three featured artists at the New London Hospital Art Program Exhibition.  My primary goal is to achieve a sense of realism in my composition by paying close attention to detail. Landscapes, still life, seascapes, and wild life define my work, but my inspiration lies in an appreciation of the natural beauty of the world’s palette.
