Evelyn Lynch began painting while residing in Germany years ago. While living in Augsburg and Stuttgart, she painted in oils under the tutelage of Kurt Schmidt, a talented artist.
After returning to the U.S., she was involved in raising her four children and resuming her professional career as a Registered Nurse in public health and later in school nursing. Retiring from her nursing career, she worked in stained glass for a number of years, making stained glass lamps, mirrors, tree ornaments and window treatments of many kinds. One of her pieces is displayed at the Mashpee Historical Museum. When she moved to Cape Cod she resumed painting, always her favorite art form. She took up painting in acrylics under the supervision and instruction of artists William Ross Searle and Barry Jones-Henry. Her paintings have been exhibited at the Mashpee Public Library, Three Fish and a Ram Gallery, and the Maser Gallery at FCTV in Falmouth. Evelyn also has her work displayed in the collections of Dr. Jonathan Katz and Terri Moreland in Washington DC.
Lauren Lynch developed a love of the arts at a young age and enjoyed painting, drawing, sculpture and playing the flute throughout elementary, middle and high school. During her undergraduate career at Boston College she studied oil painting under the instruction of Mary Armstrong. Lauren first painted in oils and now paints primarily in acrylics. Her grandmother Evelyn has long been one of Lauren’s most enthusiastic supporters, and one of her earliest artistic inspirations. This is her first professional exhibition.
From 2011-2013 Lauren lived and worked in rural Panama as a Peace Corps Volunteer, where, in addition to her work in environmental conservation, she taught art history and fine arts to students in grades 6-8 and organized a women’s artisan group that created and sold jewelry and handbags with recycled materials. In collaboration with her fiancé, Scott Mathison, she also completed a mural and sculpted a mud-oven at the school where she worked.
Lauren now resides in Somerville, MA where she is pursuing a degree in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University.
