At Your Library: Local Artist's Paintings On Display
Art Show at the Parker Library
Visit our Meeting Room during the month of August to view artwork produced by Delores Martin.
Delores Morissette Martin was born in Lowell and has been a resident of Dracut for 51 years. Her husband, Wilfrid, built their house on Pelham Road, where they raised five children. When she retired from her job as a Branch Assistant in 2002, she began learning to paint under the tutelage of Stella Pappas at the Dracut Council on Aging. While she had some drawing ability, she had never painted before.
Delores has won numerous awards for her acrylic and watercolor paintings from the Westford Parish Art Show, the Mass Senior Art Exhibition, and other local exhibits. She continues to study at the Senior Center under the present art teacher, Joan Turner.
The Town of Dracut has been an inspiration to Delores, with its old barns and lovely farmland and picturesque farmstands. She has also done a painting of the Dracut Library and the old Dracut Town Hall. A portrait of her was painted by her brother, Arthur Morrisette, a watercolorist.
During the month of August, Delores will be displaying the following paintings at the Parker Library:
Barn on Parker Road (acrylic)
Fall on Broadway Road (acrylic)
Brox Farm (acrylic)
Lilly Mac Farm (acrylic)
Pumpkins & Mums for Sale (watercolor)
Fall on Peter's Pond (acrylic)
