Farmington artist featured at Heirlooms


FARMINGTON – Heirlooms of Tomorrow will feature Farmington resident and UpCountry Artist Lucia Swallow as Artist of the Month for July.

An open house reception will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 6, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 7. The public is invited.

Color, design and creation have been common threads through Swallow’s life as a painter, gardener and mother. Her passion for art is inspired by painting on location and becoming intimate with the natural beauty around her.

Swallow has studied art for some 20-plus years and attempts to spend time each day painting, discovering and learning. She enjoys capturing the beauty and magic of flowers, sunsets and seasons in her paintings of landscapes and rural settings. Her works often include elements of light, shadows and reflections. She works in oils, pastels, watercolor and pencil.

Heirlooms of Tomorrow is located at 710 Wilton Road across from the Franklin Memorial Hospital.
