Star Island oil paintings by Chris Volpe to be exhibited in Portsmouth

Between 15 and 20 oil paintings by Christopher Volpe featuring the unique geography of Star Island will be exhibited during the month of August at the Discover Portsmouth Center in Portsmouth, NH.

Painted largely on location, Volpe’s paintings capture the brilliance and desolation of Star Island’s stark, light-drenched coasts and weathered landmarks with minimalistic design, characteristic color, and expressive brush and knife work.

Opening reception for the show is scheduled for Friday, August 3, from 5-8 p.m.

Volpe’s paintings can be viewed online at christophervolpe.com. For more information about the exhibition, visit Discover Portsmouth Center.
