Artist of the Month
Painting with Passion
Florence Como Jeannette Corbett
The Stoneham Public Library is delighted to once again host the outstanding artistic talent of Jeannette Corbett and Florence Como. These award-winning artists are passionate about their painting and their work portrays a wide breadth of subjects. They further display a special fondness for European landscape. Mrs. Como just recently returned from Umbria, spending two weeks at La Romita School of Art, painting en plain air.
Mrs. Corbett is now visiting Keeneland, and thoroughbred horse farms in Lexington, Ky. for more inspiration for her horse racing watercolors. She recently earned Second Prize at the Topsfield Fair for her painting “Photo finish”.
Both Mrs. Corbett and Mrs. Como were friends at Bridgewater State University, earned advanced degrees, and taught school for many years. Since retirement, they paint and exhibit together for shows all around the North Shore area. They share a love for watercolor, oils, acrylics, and pastels. They display their art work in a variety of venues which include art galleries, banks, libraries, and businesses.
Florence Como has won many “Best of Show” in North Shore exhibits, as well as in the Rhode Island area, Weston, and Newton. Jeannette Corbett has won over 85 awards, including many “Best of Show” in Weston, Lexington, Saugus, Woburn, and Lynnfield.
Please stop by and visit the Stoneham Library for the months of November and December for the distinct pleasure and opportunity to enjoy their art.
