A selection of Lois Anne’s small works on paper and cloth are on exhibit at the Good Tern Cafe Gallery through the middle of November. Featured are ink drawings, monoprints and mixed media pieces. These images are 5 inches square, intimately inviting the viewer to come closer.

Anne is intrigued by flowers — their shapes and forms, their beauty, their symbolism and metaphorical properties. She calls them “food for the soul.” Most of the pieces in this exhibition have been informed by chrysanthemums in various forms and contexts.

Anne received her bachelor of fine arts degree from Alfred University, and she has maintained a studio in downtown Rockland since 1984. Her work is in numerous collections including The White House and the Portland Museum of Art.

Good Tern Natural Foods Co-Op, 750 Main St., is open Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
