A solo show of watercolors by Pittsfield artist Marguerite Bride entitled “Let There Be Lighthouses” will be on exhibit the entire month of April at the Marketplace Café, 55 North Street, Pittsfield.

Bride’s fascination with lighthouses goes back quite some time, even before she began painting. Brought up on the water and around boats she was exposed to lighthouses for much of her life. Even now, whenever traveling to a new location, she tries to find new ones to visit.  Besides learning the history and some amazing stories about each lighthouse, she now captures these cherished structures in watercolor.

This exhibit is a tribute to these respected and cherished buildings --- some still operational, others are treasured relics of days gone by. Many are off the coast of New England, Cape Cod and the Islands, others Long Island Sound, the Hudson River and even Lake Gitchi Gumi. Her goal is to paint at least one light house from each state.

An artist reception will be held on Saturday, April 14 from 5-7 pm

Bride has a studio on North Street where she paints, meets with clients and gives private watercolor lessons. See a preview of the paintings on exhibit on her website,
