Exhibit: Diane Cournoyer

May 3 – June 16

Artist Reception
May 3, 6-8

Diane Cournoyer earned her BFA at New Bedford’s Swain School of Design studying with painters Ben Martinez and David Loeffler Smith. There she exhibited her desire to create with canvas and paint just as she envisioned from a young age. Graduate work followed at Parsons School of Design (New York) exposing her to a slice of the art world in the 80’s. Continuing to crave artist comradery and wanting to absorb more information Ms. Cournoyer also attended the Vermont Studio School and the Studio School of the Aegean. She even indulged herself in a bit of independent study abroad.

Exhibiting in various galleries throughout New England and New York Ms. Cournoyer was an original founding member of Gallery X of New Bedford. She also sat on the local Massachusetts Cultural Council in Fall River in the late 90’s.

Presently living in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, Diane is still playing with the imagery that has preoccupied her thoughts from early days. Manifesting in landscape, figure and still life it’s the construction, shapes, and lyrical lines that often capture her eye.
